LignoBond DD® is a high performance, cost-effective, and all-natural pellet binder, available for customers in Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia and Brazil. The product is especially effective in pellets containing high amounts of by-products, such as dried distiller grains with solubles (DDGS), or feeds containing fat in the mixer. It improves hardness of pellets, cubes, and wafers and is also ideal for pressed feed blocks and wood pellets.
LignoBond DD® is 100% lignosulphonate. Because it is a soluble fibre of plant origin, it also provides metabolisable energy and acts as a prebiotic. However, its greatest nutritional benefit continues to be its ability to improve pellet durability, reduce fines, and prevent segregation of the feed.
Typical use rates are 0.5% to 1.0%. The usage rate will be dependent on the need, manufacturing equipment, mill conditions, ingredients, and formulation. The binding response is not always linear and Borregaard LignoTech can provide assistance in determining the most cost-effective application rates for individual feeds.
