    ...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
  • Urea-based Adhesives


    Urea-based adhesives are the proven, cost-effective solution for many interior, Type II applications such as hardwood plywood, flooring and curved plywood.


    These adhesives are low cost, fast setting, and allow for long assembly times. Both liquid/liquid and liquid/powder formats are available. Either light or dark glue lines may be specified.


    Emissions from urea-based adhesives have been reduced by 80 to 90 percent since the late '70s and early '80s.
