PRODUCT APPLICATIONS

INNOVATION & VERSATILITY

Bondtite is known for a range of natural adhesives that have been used in the production of composite wood and corrugated cardboard for more than half a century. However, Bondtite’s research and development has yielded several other exciting product applications that offer powerful alternatives to synthetics in mining, agriculture, and water treatment.

GENERAL APPLICATIONS

945

Bondtite 945

Bondtite 945 is our base product, comprising of concentrated tannins for general use.

NATURAL ADHESIVES FOR COMPOSITE WOOD

241

Bondtite 241

Bondtite 241 is primarily used as an additive to phenol formaldehyde (PF) resins and has also been used in the construction of water and boil proof (marine grade) plywood when used with paraformaldehyde hardeners.

242

Bondtite 242

Bondtite 242 is used as the basis in spreadable adhesive formulations used in plywood-type applications. When used with hexamine as crosslinker/hardener the resulting adhesive does not contain any free formaldehyde and results in boards that comply with formaldehyde-emissions regulations while still being regarded as exterior grade.

345

Bondtite 345

Bondtite 345 is dissolved in water to yield a sprayable solutions used in the manufacture of MDF and particle boards. When used with hexamine as crosslinker/hardener the resulting adhesive does not contain any free formaldehyde resulting in boards that comply with
formaldehyde-emissions regulations.

MOISTURE PROOFING FOR CORRUGATED CARDBOARD

bl-1

Bondtite BL-1

Bondtite BL-1 is a liquid resin used as an effective damp-proofing agent for corrugating starch adhesives.

242

Bondtite 242

Bondtite 242, when used on its own in starch-base glue mixes may improve the “runability” of the corrugating line, however the water resistance of the glue line will be strengthened by adding a formaldehyde source, like paraformaldehyde, into the glue mix to crosslink with the tannins in Bondtite 242 in the glue mix.

MINERAL PROCESSING DISPERSANTS & DEPRESSANTS

tan-x

Bondtite TAN-X

Bondtite TAN-X is designed for use in froth flotation beneficiation processes to improve the rejection of gangue minerals and improve flotation selectivity for value minerals. TAN-X is particularly effective in depressing calcite, dolomite, Ca-Al-Mg silicates, talc and clays, and it acts also as a depressant, reducing the risk of undesirable floatable minerals becoming entrained in the froth.

tan-xs

Bondtite TAN-XS

Bondtite TAN-XS is designed for the same use cases as TAN-X and shares the same features. It offers improved strength as a depressant but is less forgiving to overdosing and requires more careful control of its dosing rates.

sep-x50

Bondtite SEP-X50

Bondtite SEP-X50 is effective for the dispersion and subsequent depression of pyrite, pyrrhotite and most sulphides. SEP-X50 can be used in tandem with TAN-X or TAN-XS in subsequent stages of the flotation flowsheet.

ANIMAL NUTRITION

suplemim

Bondtite SupleMim

SupleMim, a Phytogenic Feed Additive (PFA) is based on condensed tannins extracted from the bark of the Acacia mearnsii (Black Wattle) tree. This 100% natural, renewable, and sustainable extract, contains polyphenolic and prebiotic components and can be safely introduced into animal feeds to enhance health and nutrition in animals. Polyphenols, part of the plants natural defence mechanism, and widely recognized as antioxidants, are useful as an effective means, to modulate, support and improve certain metabolic processes in animals, naturally.

WATER TREATMENT

lucent

Lucent ͥ ͮ

Lucent is a Natural Coagulant solution based on condensed tannins extracted from the bark of the Acacia mearnsii (Black Wattle) tree, offering an eco-friendly and effective alternative to inorganic & synthetic coagulants. Lucent aims to become an essential component in sustainable and renewable water treatment strategies.
