The performance of Ameri-Bond 2X and LignoBond DD is not temperature dependent

"Lignosulphonates do not require high temperature to be effective pelleting aids."

Researchers at Kansas State University tested 1% lignosulphonate in a turkey finisher diet using a 2 inch die thickness. They documented both Reduction of Fines (ROF) and Reduction of Power (ROP).  The response was especially good at the lowest conditioning temperature, where it is most needed.
