Organic binding agents

FLOFORM™ series

Organic binding agents used in the iron ore pellet production process are the FLOFORM ™ series.

The formation of pellets typically requires the use of additives of binding agents to ensure sufficient efficiency of pellet formation steps, their calcination and reduction.
FLOFORM ™ is a series of organic polymers specially developed for the processes of iron ore granulation. They can completely or partially replace silica containing binders, such as bentonite.
FLOFORM ™ – polymers can be modified to achieve specific characteristics of iron ore. Polymers FLOFORM ™ are self-spreading powders that can be added directly to the concentrate so that the granulation process flows more gently.


  • Very high yield of raw pellets.

  • Improved properties of raw pellets.

  • Soft pelleting at different humidity.

  • Pellets don’t crack.

  • Reduction of silica / gangue.

  • Improve the quality of pellets in terms of DR purity.


  • Self-flowing powders.

  • Compatible with bentonite.

  • Miscible with ore.


Our specialists will help you choose polymers, and also advise you to choose the right equipment (you may need to develop and supply equipment for adding FLOFORM ™ in suitable factory conditions)

Transportation and storage

Polymers can be supplied in a 25 kg polypropylene bag, packed in a pallet tray for best protection, or in large bags of 750 kg. FLOFORM ™ should be stored in a closed dry place.

Health and Safety

FLOFORM ™ is considered a model of low toxicity. Anyway, beware of inhalation, contact with skin and eye contact. Observe the basics of industrial safety and hygiene.
