Products.

Our first product is the newly developed lignin based functional filler REFORCE, which is RENEWABLE and REINFORCING.

The functional filler REFORCE will substitute fossil materials like Carbon Black in the Rubber Industry.

REFORCE is produced from lignin as feedstock. This unique performance material can be considered as hybrid: it can be used to substitute carbon black and can additionally contribute to rubber reinforcement by chemical coupling via bi-functional silanes.

REFORCE 4500X has medium reinforcement properties comparable to soft blacks and is provided to selected partners under NDA/MTA as X-perimental grade targeting at working out standard commercial and customer specific product specifications.

REFORCE can be used in all kind of rubber polymers. In comparison to other reinforcing materials used for rubber compounds this biomass-based material has additionally unique features:

Characteristics XILLIX REFORCE®.

The renewable reinforcement filler REFORCE has unique performance Features.
