Application Description

Boards of the highest quality!

Single- and multilayer solid wood boards for the furniture and flooring industry have to ensure consistent and superior quality. Jowat supplies powerful adhesives for all the different manufacturing processes and requirements for the end product.

PVAc adhesives based on polyvinyl acetate are used widely in the production of single- and multilayer solid wood boards. These adhesives meet the requirements of the durability class D2 and are suitable for indoor use with occasional short-term exposure to running or condensed water. Solid wood boards for environments with higher humidity and for exterior applications with no direct exposure to weathering are bonded with reactive dispersions which meet the requirements for the durability class D3. The Jowat portfolio includes a wide range of different low-formaldehyde dispersions as well as EPI and one-component (1K) PUR adhesives which have been tried and proven for many years in this application, and provides the suitable adhesive for all the different manufacturing processes and requirements for the end product.

D2 dispersions used in the manufacture of solid wood boards for interior use have a short setting time. Certain wood species tend to discoloration when bonded with acidic adhesives. This can be prevented with pH neutral D2 and D3 dispersions. In addition, the wear and tear of the production equipment is reduced to a minimum due to the low corrosiveness of these dispersions. Jowat supplies D3 glues with a wide range of viscosities and therefore provides a solution for different surface properties as well as for every established application method, for instance by roller, nozzle, or doctor blade.

Adhesives for the manufacture of solid wood boards for products which are exposed to heavy weathering, such as outdoor furniture or cladding, have to be characterized by an increased resistance to moisture and heat. The products of choice for these applications are powerful EPI or 1K PUR adhesives from Jowat.
