Lignin-based wood protection glaze

Lignin = Pigment = Binder

Lignin is a natural product. It is constantly growing. Pulp production produces millions of tonnes of kraft lignin every year. Unfortunately, lignin is still burned up to 95%. Lignin is a natural biopolymer that can replace oil-based polymers.

A joint research project with  Fraunhofer Institute for Mechanics of Materials (IWMH), funded by Saxony-Anhalt until 2015, developed new possibilities for lignin-based coating formulations. This makes it possible to use novel, electrically conductive lignin-containing polyurethane layers and lignin-based wood protection glazes.

Since October 2015, a polyurethane-free wood protective glaze based on lignin – semaLignoDur – is available.
