Plywood / LVL - Amino Resins

The cost efficiencies and proven performance of amino-based resins are well known throughout the plywood industry. Momentive offers a full line of products from lowest cost, fast curing base urea formaldehyde resins for interior applications that don't require significant moisture resistance to highly moisture resistant melamine-urea formaldehyde products to low-emitting technologies.

 

Formaldehyde emissions from wood products is one of the hot topics in the industry today and an increasing concern among manufacturers, specifiers, regulatory agencies and consumers. To assist plywood producers in meeting the most stringent “green” construction and formaldehyde emission standards, Momentive offers a range of EcoBind™ resin technologies.
