New Wood Adhesives Answer the Call for More Sustainable End Products

H.B. Fuller is planning to launch three new adhesives aimed at helping flooring and wood furniture manufacturers reduce hazardous emissions in their finished goods, taking into consideration that wood naturally emits VOCs.

H.B. Fuller reports that the adhesives were developed in answer to calls from wood furniture and flooring manufacturers for more sustainable raw materials to use in the manufacture of finished wood products to help them lower the levels of emissions released. 

The company said its new trio of more sustainable products includes a water-based formaldehyde-free option (Rakoll 4933), a reactive hot melt adhesive with low monomer emission (Rakoll 5010), and a range of edge-banding NEP-free primers.
