AQUENCE® HALO® Product Family

Improving Safety and Increasing Efficiency in Starch Operations

Corrugated boxes are the most popular method of delivering consumer goods. What goes into the creation of these versatile containers requires corrugated manufacturers to select raw materials which produce boxes that resist tearing, crushing and bursting. The addition of additives to the starch formula increases viscosity and improves tack to maintain the high operating speeds of corrugated box operations.

The challenge: the use of powdered borax is not only labor intensive, but also an operator safety concern and has some inherent dispensing inaccuracies. Henkel’s HALO product line provides a solution to eliminate these challenges:

No constant monitoring and less downtime gives operators time to complete value-added tasks.

AQUENCE® HALO® product line replaces standard powdered borax and some products include a rheology modifier to reduce starch consumption. In addition to its benefits as a borax alternative, AQUENCE® HALO® reduces starch sling – the starch goes where it is supposed to go – on the flute tip and not on the machine, floor, and everywhere else.
