NeoLigno™ by Stora Enso is bio-based binder free from formaldehyde and isocyanate. NeoLigno™ is ideally suited for curved plywood, flooring, particle board and insulation end-use applications.
Binders that require high strength and water resistance are normally crosslinked. NeoLigno™ is an engineered two component product that uses a lignin-based binder and a bio-based crosslinker. Lignin is a fully bio-based raw material from our own production. The wood we use in our operations is certified, fully traceable to its area of origin and non-food and non-land competing.
By choosing NeoLigno by Stora Enso, you will provide your customers a safer and more natural alternative. Our first customer trials show promising results. Customers have been pleased with the fact that NeoLigno passes application-specific standard tests, is easy to clean and most importantly, offers them the possibility of creating a new bio-based product.
Stora Enso has been producing lignin, one of the components of NeoLigno, since 2015. Our work on developing formaldehyde-free binders began in 2018. After successful intial customer trials, we are aiming at a full commercial launch during the beginning of 2021. If you want to test NeoLigno contact us already today. We offer samples, life cycle assessment data, as well as the support of our highly experienced NeoLigno team. With our expertise, you will be able to replace a fossil-based material with a bio-based solution.
