What is Arboform®?
Arboform® is a brand of biomaterial made from lignin, a natural polymer found in wood, and natural fibers such as flax, hemp, or cotton. It is often referred to as "liquid wood" due to its resemblance to wood in texture and appearance. Arboform® is produced using a proprietary process that involves heating and pressing the lignin and fibers together, creating a durable and moldable material that can be used in a variety of applications. Arboform® is a renewable and sustainable material that is biodegradable, produces no microplastics, and has a small CO2 footprint, making it an eco-friendly alternative to traditional plastics. It is used in the manufacturing of products such as the HOOF-it® Blacksmith© Eco© Hoof Stand.
