Modern adhesive systems for perfect surfaces
For many years, flat lamination applications have been a growth market in the wood and furniture industry with constantly increasing requirements for manufacturing processes as well as for the used adhesives.
In the manufacture of modern furniture, wood-based panels are surface-laminated with the most diverse materials. Frequently used materials are resinated decor foils, veneers, as well as thermoplastic foils, CPL and HPL. The finished panels have numerous different applications: from the kitchen and home furniture to general interior fittings and floorings, the shipbuilding and caravan industries, as well as for exhibition displays and shopfitting. Decoratively laminated panels and profiles are the current state of the art.
The mentioned materials are bonded using a variety of technologies which demand specific optimized adhesive solutions. For years, the state of technology was processing with Urea Formaldehyde (UF) adhesives. These are, however, viewed with growing reserve, due to current aspects of health and ecology. Innovative Jowat adhesive systems on dispersion or hot melt bases are the efficient alternatives. Polyurethane hot melts have been established in the market for many years and are the products of choice for applications which require a superior bonding quality.
