TOA Dovechem’s adhesives are highly cross linked thermosetting polymers, comprising of bonds between urea, formaldehyde, melamine and/or phenol. 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 plywood. Phenol formaldehyde adhesives provide the plywood with excellent water resistant properties and are thus used in exterior applications.
