Roll up new productivity gains in your mill

Note - this header is original site text. Whether you are producing specialty papers, performance linerboard, absorbent tissue or grease-resistant food wrap, success in papermaking comes down to the fundamentals: Run faster. Deliver top quality. And make it all happen more efficiently — with lower costs, more energy savings and a reduced carbon footprint.

At Ingredion, we're paper packaging people too. We know it takes more than our broad portfolio of reliable, specialty additives, coatings and adhesives. We're also here with technical expertise and mill knowhow to streamline processes, troubleshoot issues and move your operation to new levels of productivity — with the reliable service and support you need for uptime, all the time.

Count on us for:

  • Liquid, ready-to-use starch solutions for tissue and paper towels that save costs and bring strength, softness and bulk
  • Innovative performance starches for packaging grades that boost product strength and consume less fiber for more MSF and enhanced printability
  • Solutions to replace synthetics like fluorochemicals for FSP and reduce or eliminate fluorochemicals in your processing
  • Papermaking starches that bring new efficiencies and enhanced productivity in your process
  • Ingredion's unmatched service and support for product selection, troubleshooting and process optimization

Board solutions

Make me shorter. For stronger, lighter cartons and containerboard, seek out more innovation in your additives, coatings and adhesives. At Ingredion, that's what we deliver — and we'll show you the way to achieve improved productivity and cost-effectiveness for your unique strength, printability and barrier requirements. From robust wet-end solutions that reduce basis weight and improve drainage and retention to smarter binder and surface solutions delivering greater performance and value, we bring deep understanding of packaging and starch chemistry to meet your challenges.

Specialty paper/packaging solutions

Make me shorter. If you're manufacturing sack kraft, grease-resistant grades, food wrap, fry scoops or microwave paper, replacing fluorochemicals with safe, naturally derived alternatives is key. FILMKOTE® and REDIFILM® barrier starches are a natural alternative to achieve required oil and grease resistance with a range of products for your surface treatment requirements. The switch can pose challenges, but we can help you move to a smarter formulation to achieve required oil and grease resistance with our extensive range of naturally produced products for all your surface treatment needs.

Tissue solutions

Make me shorter. Improving tissue production starts in the wet-end, where our ready-for-use additive solutions can result in multiple benefits — improved dry strength, less linting and dusting, and ability to use less costly and recycled pulp sources without sacrificing quality. Let our tissue specialists help you select from our lineup of REDIBOND® and PENBOND® cationic & amphoteric natural polymers and REDIPRO® and TOPCAT® high-charged cationic natural polymers to take on your most challenging goals.
