FRANKLIN ADHESIVES & POLYMERS: Bio-Modified Adhesive

August 13, 2010

This company, a division of Franklin International, has introduced its first bio-modified adhesive, Multibond MX-100, using technology it developed during research funded through a $100,000 grant from the United Soybean Board. The adhesive uses the renewable resource soy to create an environmentally friendly, one-part adhesive for use in manufacturing engineered hardwood flooring. The bio-modified crosslinking polyvinyl acetate (PVA) adhesive contains no added formaldehyde and easily meets rigorous California’s CARB Phase 2 limits on formaldehyde emissions.
