Wood the right material - LOCTITE PURBOND the right adhesive
Because all adhesives used in glulam construction are petrochemical-based (derived from petroleum and natural gas), they are not renewable. Achieving a given level of performance with LOCTITE PURBOND adhesives requires smaller quantities than with competing systems, and thus means a saving of these precious resources. LOCTITE PURBOND adhesives contain no VOCs (volatile organic solvents) or water-soluble ingredients that can pollute the environment.
The chief environmental benefit of LOCTITE PURBOND adhesives, however, is that they help promote the use of wood, which is superior to all other materials in terms of sustainability and resource depletion, and open up new potential uses for it in critical applications.
The chemically reactive ingredient in 1C polyurethane adhesives is methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI).
Purbond furnishes its partners with ample documentation on the use of LOCTITE PURBOND products and their properties in the cured condition. We also seek to ensure that our customers can use our new and innovative technology in a correct and economical way.
