    ...for more than just wood


    Hexion is one of the leading suppliers of adhesive systems to producers of structural wood components. Our success is the result of a total solutions approach to meeting customer needs. This includes offering an extensive portfolio of chemistries tailored to meet a variety of functional requirements.


    Wood-Adhesives-Performance-Adhesive-Chemistries-03 Customers can choose from the following adhesive options:


    • Casein – natural, bio-based alternative 
    • Emulsion Polymer Isocyanate (EPI) – two-part solutions for a variety of applications
    • Ethylene Vinyl Acetate – easy-to-use, one-part systems for internal, dry-use applications
    • Melamine-based Resins – excellent moisture resistance and strength make them ideal for everything from cabinet veneers to structural finger jointing
    • Phenol Resorcinol-based Resins – an industry standard for structural engineered wood applications such as I-beams and glulam which must retain excellent thermal stability
    • Polyvinyl Acetate (PVA) – two-part and one-component resins for a variety of applications
    • Resorcinol-based Resins – primarily used in structural, exterior applications
    • Urea-based Resins – proven, cost-effective solutions for many interior, Type II applications
  • Wood-Adhesives-Ethylene-Vinyl-Acetate-EVA-Adhesives-01 Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) Adhesives

    Ethylene vinyl acetate is an easy-to-use, one-part copolymer emulsion for internal, dry-use applications. Its properties are similar to a PVA homopolymer. It is also fast setting. EVA is great for bonding wood to nonporous substrates like metal foil, vinyl, and plastic.
