Surface gluing refers to the joining of wood pieces and boards either on the broadside or the edge to manufacture multi-layer laminated timber products.
Edge gluing is used among other applications in the manufacture of single-ply panels that are subsequently processed into cross-laminated timber products.
LOCTITE PURBOND adhesives are applied in a suitable application process. After application of the adhesive, the adhesive-coated parts are pressed for a defined period of time in a cold process - no additional energy (heat) is required.
The following products can be manufactured with the surface application process:
- Glued laminated timber
- Duo and trio beams
- Cross beams
- Cross-laminated timber
- Special structural elements
- Log beams
- Semis for cross-laminated timber
- Box beams
- Edge beams
