Our range of urea-formaldehyde, melamine-urea-formaldehyde and phenol-formaldehyde adhesives are multipurpose and have proven to be the most cost effective wood binding system. Urea based systems are known for its high cure speed under high temperature and acidic conditions, while melamine based systems enhance the strength and durability of the OSBs. Phenol formaldehyde adhesives provide the OSBs with excellent water resistant properties and are thus used in exterior applications.
