Our Markets:

Building Materials

DuraBind™, our engineered biopolymer product family, is used as a natural binder alternative for a number of products within the building materials sector. Using DuraBind, customers have been able to significantly reduce the use of highly regulated chemicals, such as formaldehyde, in their adhesive resin formulations.

  • Wood Composites: DuraBind bioresin is a compelling, cost-competitive alternative to heavily regulated chemical binder systems. DuraBind engineered biopolymers are safe and sustainable, offering equal or better performance compared to synthetic‐based alternatives.
  • Insulation: DuraBind engineered biopolymers are a cost-effective, sustainable solution that replaces non-renewable binders used in the building insulation market. DuraBind holds the individual fibers of insulation together during the manufacturing process to provide the consistent performance that manufacturers require.

Improve Economics

With DuraBind engineered biopolymers, you can meet NAF (no added formaldehyde) regulations without sacrificing product or manufacturing performance. You can also replace heavily regulated chemicals with our bio-based binders on a 2:1 basis – without increasing overall production costs.

Improve Performance

Realize the following manufacturing improvements with DuraBind bioresin:

  • Binding efficiencies
  • Mechanical strength: modulus of rupture (MOR)
  • Moisture resistance
  • Renewable manufacturing processes
  • VOC reduction or elimination

Improve Sustainability

Using renewable binders to replace heavily regulated chemicals, such as formaldehyde, in the production of commercial mineral and fiberglass wall insulation and wood composite products enables you to offer an NAF product that meets regulatory requirements and delivers a unique, environmentally friendly product to the market.
