Cellulosic Fiber Composites Using Protein Hydrolysates and Methods of Making Same

Battelle Memorial Institute

Contact BMI About This Technology

Technology Marketing SummaryThis technology relates to cellulosic fiber composites using protein hydrolysates.
DescriptionCellulosic fiber composites currently use petroleum-derived binders such as isocyanates and phenol formaldehyde. This work fills a need for a new fiber-adhesive, resin binder system that reduces the amount of phenolic and/or isocyanate resin needed.Benefits
  • Replacement of petroleum-derived products with natural products
  • Ability to use green lumber during bonding
  • Significant cost savings with use of soy flour
Applications and Industries
  • Traditional compressed cellulosic composites
  • Oriented strand board
