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 the latest 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
  • Resins that can be used to be CARB Phase II and EPA TSCA Title VI compliant
  • Liquid meter-mixed systems

Typical applications are:

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

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 levels below CARB Phase II and EPA TSCA Title VI levels
  • Co-reactant technology
    • Additive for UF and MUF resins
  • Phenolic resins
    • Can contribute to LEED v.4 credit
