Adhesives for Sustainable Development


Special adhesive solutions for lightweight composites enable the reduction of the CO2 footprint of lightweight furniture compared to high density furniture

  • Saving resources is a key driver in sustainable development. Lightweight composites help by delivering high performance and quality whilst reducing material use and energy consumption during production and transport.
  • Panels of expanded paper covered with HDF have a density of 300 kg/m³ vs MDF panels which have a density of 660 kg/m³.
  • Adhesives are essential to bond the different materials in composites, e.g. expanded paper and HDF.
  • Special adhesive solutions enable the production of lightweight panels, contributing to the increased stability and durability of lightweight furniture.
