ADHESIVEs and SEALANTS

Woodworking

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
  • Particle boards
  • Soft- and hard plywood

Adhesives used for secondary woodworking applications address following application areas:

  • Furniture and kitchen cabinets
  • Glued laminated timber constructions (Glulam)
  • Laminated parquets
  • Production of doors and windows
  • Sandwich panels

Our silane-modified polymers are high quality binders for hybrid adhesives and 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 and 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.
