Application Description

The term lightweight board (furniture) panels can be applied to a huge variety of material combinations, all of these aiming at products with lower weight in comparison to conventional wood-based substrates used in the manufacture of furniture ( linke for instance solid wood, particleboard and MDF), while at the same time maintaining all desired furniture aspects of function and utility.

Jowat supplies a portfolio of powerful dispersions and hot melts with special adhesives for the manufacture of lightweight boards. Which adhesive is the product of choice depends on the materials assembled ( like for instance thin particleboard with cardboard honeycomb cores, honeycombs made of aluminium in an aluminium skin, high-pressure laminates with PU cores, etc), and also on the method of adhesive application (usually roller coater or slot die), and last but not least on the uses and exposures for which the finished part is intended. The boards can be sealed with a hydrophobic treatment of the substrate which reinforces the surface of the wood-based carrier substrate increasing its hardness and reduces the release of VOC by preventing emissions.
