Chemical Property

1.Lignosulfonates can work as Binder

Can be used as binders in well-paper, particle boards, linoleum flooring, coal briquettes, and roads.

Aqueous Lignosulfonate solutions are also widely used as a non-toxic dust suppression agent for unpaved road surfaces, where it is popularly, if erroneously, called “tree sap”. Roads treated with lignosulfonates can be distinguished from those treated with calcium chloride by color: lignosulfonates give the road surface a dark grey color, while calcium chloride lend the road surface a distinctive tan or brown color. As lignosulfonates do not rely on water to provide their binding properties, they tend to be more useful in arid locations.

2.Lignosulfonates can work as Dispersant.

Can be used to disperse pesticides, dyes, carbon black, and other insoluble solids and liquids into water. They are used in tanning leather. They are also used to suppress dust on unpaved roads.

3.Lignosulfonates can work as Emulsifier

4.Lignosulfonates can work as Retarder

Lignosulfonates one of the first dispersants added as an admixture to concrete. Lignosulfonates have been used since the 1930s as plasticizers or water reducers. Mixed with concrete, their use has afforded the beneficial effects of retarding the setting time and reducing the amount of mixing water required. Furthermore, greater workability of plastic concrete during its placement in formworks and increased air entrainment have resulted from their use. As by-product of the pulping industry, lignosulfonates are of low price and despite their limited performance they find a large field of applications for improving the quality of concrete

5.Lignosulfonates can work as Water reducing agent

The single largest use for lignosulfonates is as plasticizers in making concrete,where they allow concrete to be made with less water (giving stronger concrete) while maintaining the ability of the concrete to flow

As plasticizers in making concrete, where they allow concrete to be made with less water (giving stronger concrete) while maintaining the ability of the concrete to flow. Lignosulfonates are also used during the production of cement, where they act as grinding aids in the cement mill and as a rawmix slurry deflocculant (that reduces the viscosity of the slurry)

6. Anti-oxidant  As animal feed additives

7.Lignosulfonate can work as fertilizer

Lignosulfonate can be Nutrients Carrier plants growth regulator
