Under the brand name Lignostone® Transformerwood® we offer you a laminated densified wood according to IEC 61061 for the construction of transformers that consists of beech veneers (Fagus sylvatica), which are joined together with thermosetting synthetic resins under pressure and heat. Lignostone® Transformerwood® has the following properties:

  • good electrical insulation
  • very good oil absorption
  • low specific weight
  • withstands high mechanical loading
  • low- and high-temperature resistance
  • resistance to abrasion and wear

Veneer quality

Key to identification

The required grade for a specific application is defined by

Densification symbols

L = 0.75 to 1.05 g/cm³
M = 1.10 to 1.25 g/cm³
H = 1.30 to 1.40 g/cm³


I= parallel
II= crosswise
X= tangential

Veneer thickness

1 = veneers < 2 mm
2 = veneers ≥ 2 mm

Type of resin

without character = mechanical types
E3 = electrical types

Example: An example for identification of one of the standard types: LII/2-E3 = Low density – crosswise lamination – with ≥ 2.0 mm veneer – electrical type. We also supply special types for applications with particular requirements.
