ADHESIVEs & SEALANTS
Various different adhesives are used in woodworking applications.
Adhesives used for primary woodworking applications for the production of boards and panels:
Medium-density fiberboards (MDFs)
Oriented strand boards
Soft- and hard plywood
Adhesives used for secondary woodworking applications address following application areas:
Furniture and kitchen cabinets
Glued laminated timber constructions (Glulam)
Production of doors and windows
Our silane-modified polymers are high quality binders for hybrid adhesives & sealants addressing woodworking applications. They allow you to develop products with a wide range of mechanical properties and without any need for hazard labelling. We offer silane-terminated binder systems (Methanol-release, Polymer ST series) and silane-modified polymers with lateral cross-linking groups (Ethanol-release, TEGOPAC® series).
Our extensive additive portfolio for water-based and reactive adhesives & sealants (PUs, SMPs, epoxides and acrylics) offers many possibilities to optimize formulation performance. The defoaming/deaeration of formulations, improved substrate wetting or better dispersion of filler materials is also possible. The additives can also help to optimize production processes or application performance.
