StarBond Lignosulfonate Pellet Binders

Competent in pelleting additives

StarBond pellet binders can be applied in many different pelleting processes, ranging from compound feed production to organic fertilizers. With more than 35 years of experience in pelleting technology, the specialists of LignoStar have the best qualifications in the sector to advise clients in pelleting technology and additives.

StarBond pellet binders do not only make pellets more durable, they also increase the efficiency of the pellet mill. To form e.g. feed pellets, feed is extruded through a metal die. When StarBond is mixed with the feed, it produces a lubricating film over the metal surface. As a result, less power is required and the extrusion rate is increased. This saves energy and reduces man-hours per ton of feed, adding to the sustainability in the production process.
