AGRA-BOND
(Pellet Binder)

AGRA-BOND:
A pellet binder for use in animal feeds. Using Agra-Bond will give you a durable pellet, reduced energy costs, longer die life and increased production.

Description / benefits:
 

bullet

Can be used in all animal feeds

bullet

It’s non-toxic

bullet

Approved by USDA & FDA

bullet

It’s water-proof – It doesn’t expand and it doesn’t dissolve in the water, a property very significant especially for its use in aqua and marine environments.

bullet

It hardens the pellet by 24,1%

bullet

It makes a much firmer pellet than other binders

bullet

It acts differently than the usual binders: needs less steam but it gets activated by heat; – degree of hardness can be controlled by temperature during pelleting

bullet

Reduces the dust by 22,6% - 34,9%

bullet

It allows maximum inclusion of protein and energy in high energy rations

bullet

It increases the rate of feed production by 23,9%

bullet

Mill efficiency : it reduces frictional losses by lubricating the die – reducing power requirements and increasing throughput

bullet

It improves durability and therefore limits production of fines

bullet

It has hydroscopic characteristics that reduce extreme stickiness of pellets during cooling

bullet

It doesn’t interfere with the action/absorption of various nutrients

bullet

IT DOESN’T AFFECT ANIMALS’ HEALTH

Chemical analysis:
Nitrogen (N):15%
Calcium (Ca): 3%
Free Formaldehyde: 0,18%

Ingredients:
Urea Formaldehyde Resin
Calcium Sulfate
Silicon Dioxide

Inclusion rates:
The inclusion rate depends on the amount of fat included in the feed as well as on the amount of cereals and minerals contained. The inclusion rate ranges between 1-2 kilos / ton of feed.

FEED TYPE

USE LEVEL/TONE

High fat (more that 2% added fat) 2 kg.
Low fat (less than 2% added fat) 1-2 kg.
High fiber (more than 6% fiber) 2 kg.
Low fiber (less than 6% fiber) 1-2 kg.
High Urea (more than 20% of protein from urea) 2 kg.
Low Urea (less than 20% of protein from urea) 1-2 kg.

* Use slightly lower inclusion rate for extruded feeds

Advantage:
Because of the low inclusion rate (1-2 kilos), the use of Agra-bond leaves room in the feed formula for other ingredients to be used.

Packaging:
25kg multi-wall polylined bags.

Shelf-life:
The product’s shelf life depends on the temperature it is stored at. It’s suggested that Agra-bond is stored in a cool dry place. Excessive heat and moisture can cause caking. Shelf-life : 20oC→ 1 year 25-30oC→ 6 months 35-38oC→ 3 months

Feeds:

bullet

Dog-feed : If a dog-feed containing Agra-Bond gets mixed with water, the feed will retain its original form for at least 4 hours; in contrast, when the feed is mixed with other pellet binders, it doesn’t retain its original form for more than 45 minutes.

bullet

Fish meal : The feed containing Agra-Bond can retain its original form for up to 24 hours, when in marine water, and up to 8 hours in regular water. If Agra-bond is not added to the feed, the feed will expand and dissolve within 2-3 hours.
