Woodmer® Biopolymer

Ecohelix provides high performing WOODMER® biopolymer products, sustainable emission reducing materials for formulators and brand owners. Ecohelix WOODMER® product is a wood-based ampiphilic biopolymer which consists of wood components hemicellulose and lignin. Through a sophisticated biomimicking process using laccase enzyme as a catalyst, we can create a high performing and controllable polymer structure.

WOODMER® biopolymer possesses film forming and adhesive properties and is surface active which makes it highly useful in several different application areas, such as adhesive, dispersant, barrier, emulsifier and film former.

WOODMER® products are renewable polymer products from wood biomass side streams. They have very good sustainability profile as their production emits only 0.19 tnCO2/tn product.

Novel bio-based products will have low environmental impact, reducing up to 96% of the greenhouse gas emissions compared to competing solutions. In some cases, Woodmer products have up to 20 times higher performance than existing solutions in the market.

WOODMER® Adhesive

WOODMER® Adhesive is a water-based adhesive, which comes in a water solution of about 50w% and viscosity in the range of 1000-2000cP. High dry content and low viscosity enables a high wet tack and fast drying time. Other product features are good penetration to porous materials and good resistance to heat and cold. WOODMER® Adhesive can replace food-based adhesives such as starch, dextrin and casein as well as fossil oil-based PVA adhesives.

WOODMER® Adhesive has potential to be used in following applications:

  • Corrugated boxes
  • Packaging materials
  • Tube winding
  • Laminating
  • Wet label glue for bottles

WOODMER® Dispersant

WOODMER® Dispersant is water-based dispersing agent, which comes in a water solution of around 20w%. By a well-defined and narrow molecular weight together with the negative charges of the polymer, it is possible to improve the separation of particles in suspension preventing their clumping and enhancing the solids loading. WOODMER® Dispersant can replace fossil oil-based dispersants such as fluoro-carbon polymers, polyacrylates, polyamide and stearates.

Ecohelix Research&Development – where science and creativity intersect

“I love solving problems in a creative way. A scientist is like a detective – looking for clues, interrogating suspects, using technology to glean information, interpreting the results, using deductive reasoning, and finally solving the mystery. For scientist like myself and my team members, these solved mysteries result in new formulas, chemical compounds, and material … Read more
