Binding Resins for Particleboard and Fiberboard

We at Hexion are continually pioneering new solutions with the goal of providing particleboard and fiberboard manufacturers with a wide variety of options and benefits. We offer a range of products to meet evolving formaldehyde emission standards while delivering the highest performance. These include:

Amino Resins

For manufacturing particleboard and fiberboard used in interior applications, we offer urea formaldehyde (UF), melamine-urea formaldehyde (MUF) and hybrid melamine-urea-phenol formaldehyde (MUPF) resins. Options include:

  • Standard UF resins
  • MUF resins including Type I high moisture-resistant systems
  • Low fuming, CARB Phase I and Phase II compliant resins
  • Liquid meter-mixed systems

Typical applications are:

  • Furniture
  • Cabinetry
  • Countertops
  • Laminated flooring
  • Molding and millwork
  • Composite cores
  • Veneer cores

Emission Reduction Products

To reduce emissions even further to ultra-low, "background" levels, we provide:

  • Scavenger resins
    • Can be substituted for up to 30 percent of UF or MUF resin solids
    • Effective in lowering emissions to HUD, CPA EPP 0.2, E1 and CARB Phase I levels
  • Co-reactant technology
    • Additive for UF and MUF resins
    • Effective in lowering emissions to CARB I and II levels with diminished effect on resin cure rates
  • Phenolic resins
    • Can contribute to LEED v.4 credit
    • No urea formaldehyde
    • Tack and cure speed adjusted to meet your application requirements
  • EcoBind™ Resin Technology
    • Specifically formulated to meet or exceed global regulatory emission standards
