Plywood adhesive, also known as plywood glue, is a type of substance that can bind inner core layers and face veneers when manufacturing wood panels. Structural wood product manufacturing processes often use plywood adhesives in a variety of conditions. Many applications such as cabinets, engineered wood flooring and furniture production specifically use plywood materials to provide flat surfaces, dimensional stability and added structural strength.

When producing plywood sheets, you can choose from multiple types of plywood glue. Plywood glues feature different characteristics depending on their composition, making it important to select the right adhesive based on the needs of a specific application. For instance, interior and exterior applications may have different requirements because of the different conditions to which the adhesive is exposed.

For many applications, BreezeBond™ is an appropriate solution that can provide lasting and sustainable results.

What is BreezeBond™ Wood Adhesive?

BreezeBond™ wood adhesive is a plant-based, hot press adhesive, and high-strength plywood glue that’s suitable for a wide range of uses. It is the only soy-based adhesive available that is free of added formaldehyde and toxic petrochemical content. BreezeBond™ wood adhesive is ideal for making plywood because of its ability to reduce net carbon footprint and subsequently meet sustainable green building goals.

Our team of researchers has spent years developing our patented* petroleum-free, no-added formaldehyde (NAF) hardwood plywood glue, which is designed for hot press applications. During the manufacturing process, a compatible reagent is responsible for modifying the amino acid groups in the soy flour, causing them to mimic natural bioadhesive proteins, which are strong proteins found in barnacles, sea mussels, and other sources in nature. Following this step, we add an oxidizing agent to help form cross-linking bonds that boost the adhesive’s performance. The result is a strong and eco-friendly adhesive.
