FRANKLIN ADHESIVES & POLYMERS: Plywood Adhesives

July 16, 2010

This company, a division of Franklin International, is unveiling its new plywood line of seven CARB-compliant adhesives for plywood products. The line introduces the company’s first-ever bio-modified adhesives, which use soy technology that the division developed during research funded through a grant from the United Soybean Board. In addition, two new bio-modified, one-part polyvinyl acetate (PVA) adhesives that meet ANSI/HPVA type 2 water resistance are offered: Multibond MX-100 for engineered hardwood plywood offers a long open time and builds tack with time; and Multibond MX-200 for direct-feed hot-press operations.
