Adhesives for sustainable development

Adhesives enable wooden structural elements for innovative construction technologies, thus saving energy and reducing CO2 emissions by the use of renewable and recyclable materials. 

  • Reducing CO2 emissions and reusability at the end of the service life are important drivers in sustainable development. Timber is a natural, renewable, and thus more sustainable building material. 
  • Cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels enable significant volumes of wood to be used in structural construction applications.
  • Special adhesives are crucial for the production of the wooden elements. 
  • The adhesives and the production of the elements are strictly quality controlled and certified. This contributes to an expected life span of more than 30 years.
