Reagens™

SACHEM’s portfolio of cationization agents for starch and cellulose (carbohydrates) is Reagens™. It includes cationization agents and carbohydrate modifiers.

Developed in the early 1970’s, SACHEM is one of the oldest and leading global producers of 3-chloro-2-hydroxypropyl trimethylammonium chloride (REAGENS-S-CFZ or CHPT) and the glycidyl derivative GMAC™. Both are derived from epichlorohydrin and trimethylamine and serve as the market’s main cationization agents.

SACHEM’s Reagens™ and GMAC™ are utilized in the cationization of starch. Our customers use our cationization agents to cationize starch to be utilized by the paper industry for processing of high quality paper grades.

Reagens™ is supplied in bulk, IBCs and drums in both a 65% and 69% solution. GMAC™ is supplied in bulk, IBCs and drums, and has a lower stability than the Reagens™ derivative.

SACHEM offers the following products for carbohydrate cationization and modification:
