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 rigidity.
When producing panels of plywood, multiple types of plywood adhesive are available to choose from. Each type of plywood adhesive features unique characteristics depending on its 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 while helping keep indoor air quality fresh too.
What is BreezeBond™?
BreezeBond™ wood adhesive is a plant-based hot press plywood adhesive that is also suitable for a wide range of other applications, including wood veneer laminates, paper foils, and potentially particleboard. It is the only soy-based adhesive available that is free of added formaldehyde and toxic petrochemical content. Using BreezeBond™ wood adhesive is a great way for companies to meet sustainable building goals, reduce net carbon footprint, and eliminate harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Our team of researchers has spent years developing our patented, petroleum-free, no-added formaldehyde (NAF) hardwood plywood adhesive, 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.
The BreezeBond™ Advantage:
BreezeBond™ features several unique advantages over other types of plywood glue. These benefits include:
Single component adhesive with a trace additive blended in before use
No expensive capital investments to convert from traditional adhesives
No petrochemicals and no added formaldehyde during the manufacturing process
Low viscosity and meets industry wet or dry strength adhesion performance standards
Tested at independent laboratories including the U.S. Forest Products Laboratory
Made from sustainable and renewable sources
From technology developed at the University of Wisconsin and the U.S. Forest Service
Shelf life of up to 3 months — longer than most traditional soy-based adhesives
Biodegradable and allows forest products to potentially be composted at the end of their life cycle
