LignoTech Announces More Choices In Bio-based Fillers

LignoTech is evaluating corn hulls, soy, and sugar beet as resin fillers

LignoTech Developments has announced new choices in thermoset resin additives. Currently manufacturing Lignoset, a bio-based extender for thermoset resins made from dried distillery grains, the company has now announced that it is evaluating other resin fillers including soy, sugar beet and corn hulls. According to Russell Fisher, North American Technical Specialist, “This new variety of Lignoset extenders will provide composite companies several competitive choices for a green renewable solution that can lower costs”.

In addition, Lignoset material has a lower specific gravity which is a key competitive advantage by reducing weight. Independent testing in the USA indicates that Lignoset can replace a portion of the composite materials now used in thermoset matrices. BMC, SMC and Pultrusion have been successfully tested.
