For decades, bonding edgebands to wood-based boards has been an established practice in the manufacture of furniture. Progress in engineering and processing technology, as well as a growing diversity of processed materials from different manufacturers, and especially the demand for visually more appealing furniture have placed higher demands on adhesives and adhesive technology.
Consumers demand furniture with perfect and almost invisible bondlines.
The reactive hot melt adhesive based on polyurethane meets superior requirements regarding moisture and heat resistance. Jowatherm-Reaktant® 607.40 is a PUR hot melt for edgebanding with very good initial strength, excellent flexibility at low temperatures, and good resistance to solvents. Depending on humidity and material moisture, crosslinking takes place within a few days.
Jowatherm-Reaktant® 607.41 is the white version for a perfect colour adaptation to today’s modern furniture designs.
Jowatherm-Reaktant® 607.40/41 is an adhesive for automatic edgebanders with a wide field of application, e.g. edges of HPL/CPL, polyester, PVC, ABS, PP, resinated paper, solid wood or veneer.
