Natural liquid starch
Clax Perfect is a high quality rice based liquid starch. This product can be
applied on cotton and polyester material, including VISA.
Clax Perfect is a well-preserved, high quality rice based liquid starch. It has a
small particle size, and consequently particles can penetrate well into the fabric,
depositing in and around fibres. Rice starch contains a high proportion of
amylopectin(relative to amylose) and therefore has high cohesiveness and
forms good films. The rice starch film on the fibres will act as a protective layer,
thus restricting penetration of soil into the fibres. In this way starch will also
function as a soil release agent, when dissolving in the next wash. Please note
that for good starching, the fabric should contain sufficient residual moisture and
the right temperature and pressure should be applied.
Clax Perfect can be used for starching cotton bed sheets and table linen and
polyester (VISA) table linen.
• Excellent starching of cotton and polyester (VISA)
• Has soil release properties
Dosing levels are dependent on wash classification.
Starch should be applied in the last rinse of a washer extractor or in the last
section of a continuous batch washer.
Cotton: 4.5 g/kg (for light stiffening) to 18 g/kg (for firm stiffening)
Polyester (100 % VISA): 15 - 20 g/kg (for firm stiffening)
Please note the following:
• The bath level of the starch-processing step should be as low as possible, as
to increase the starch concentration. This will result in a cost-effective process.
• During starching the pH of the solution should be around 5.5.
• The risk of bacterial growth is high when starch is left in the last section of a
tunnel washer over night or, even worse, during a weekend. It is therefore
recommended to avoid situations where classifications that need starch, are
the last one’s to be processed at the end of the day.
• To minimise risk it is advised not to process starch classifications in a tunnel
washer that is also used for washing hospital linen. In those cases where this
cannot be avoided, it is necessary to suppress bacterial growth by applying
