Lignostone® is a laminated densified wood that consists of beech veneers (Fagus sylvatica), which are joined together with thermosetting synthetic resins under pressure and heat.
What is special about Lignostone® laminated densified wood?
For Lignostone® selected red beech veneers from highest quality are used. The peeled veneers used for Lignostone® are subject to stringent quality specifications and come from sustainable forest management.
Thanks to the excellent conditions in Western Europe for growing beech within a period of around 120 years, top grades of this product from logs of suitable length felled in the right locations offer extremely
good homogeneity that enables them to withstand the extremely high electric stresses. In addition to its electrical strengths, due to its intact capillaries with continuous load-bearing fibres this material offers unsurpassed mechanical strength values, which depend on the direction of lamination and the densification.
- withstands high mechanical loading
- good electrical insulation
- low thermal conductivity
- low- and high-temperature resistance
- resistance to abrasion and wear
- low coefficient of sliding friction
- low specific weight
- very good oil absorption
Due to its special material properties, Lignostone® is mainly used as insulation material in transformer construction and as thermal insulation for tank supports in LNG and LPG vessels.
