BOSTIK INC.: Polymer Technology

January 6, 2014

Axios™ Tri-Linking™ polymer technology reportedly distinguishes itself from the competition at the molecular level. While modern hardwood adhesives contain linear polymer chains and therefore can only link to other molecules at each end, the new technology reportedly introduces a molecule that features three branches, like a tripod. The molecules can reportedly link in three locations instead of only two, creating a stronger bond.
 
The branched molecule also means that Tri-Linking polymers become more entangled, reportedly creating a tighter, interwoven layer that dramatically improves overall bond strength, moisture protection, and sound reduction.
