Adhesives for timber construction
Adhesives for sustainable development: Energy savings, Durability & Recycling
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.
