EcoBind for Adhesive
At Momentive, we approach every customer challenge with a solutions
perspective. This includes requests for “greener” product
options. Since the early 1980s, we’ve worked with customers
to develop chemistries that reduce emissions from wood products
by 80 to 90 percent, without compromising performance.
Resin Technologies are the most recent example of our commitment
to environmentally suitable adhesives that meet or exceed the most
stringent industry standards–not only for exceptionally low emissions,
but also for heat and moisture resistance, strength and durability,
and production efficiency.
Ultra-low emitting urea formaldehyde (UF) resin
Our UF resins help product manufacturers in
the construction, furniture, moulding and millwork industries meet
the strictest global standards.
Ultra-low emission phenol formaldehyde (PRF) systems
for engineered wood
This proprietary scavenger system locks up free
formaldehyde, allowing customers to achieve an E0 rating, while
maintaining the absolute highest performance standards for structural
wood products. Because of this combination of properties, our PRF
adhesive has become the gold standard for the I-beam and glulam
markets and serves as the benchmark for structural and heat performance.
"No-added UF" adhesives including PVAs,
EPIs and hot melt systems
Momentive also offers a complete range of "no-added
UF" solutions optimized for various applications.
emulsified-phenolic-loaded PVAs (polyvinyl acetates) provide the
highest heat performance for assembly applications. They also tolerate
much higher moisture content and provide an extra measure of durability.
Momentive’s unique EPI (emulsion polymerized isocyanate) adhesive
delivers world-class performance for wood-to-wood and wood-to-nonwood
applications with no added formaldehyde. It’s already passed
the new, tougher CSA 0112.9 testing for strength and durability.
your application requires the special properties of hot melt polyurethanes,
we also offer that option.
