Formaldehyde-free amino resins on a glycol aldehyde basis for wood-based materials and decorative paper coatings
Simply reducing the formaldehyde content in adhesives for wood-based materials and impregnation resins does not seem to suffice – resins which are completely free of formaldehyde are, in fact, required. In this project, we are developing formaldehyde-free melamine and melamine-urea resins on a glycol aldehyde basis for use as adhesive in wood-based materials and as impregnation resin for decorative paper coatings. The idea is to introduce these new resins without any need for changes to the established processing conditions and without any detriment to the product properties. The manufacturing price should be comparable to the currently used formaldehyde-based amino resins.
