Wood has always been a staple from which some of our most treasured possessions are crafted – homes, furniture, cabinetry, flooring and even musical instruments.
Our passion for wood has remained steadfast for hundreds of years. But today, wood products are much more sophisticated. Technological advances in laminates, particle board and other wood composites have made wood products more durable and affordable than ever before.
AkzoNobel is the leading global supplier of wood coatings. For nearly a century, our industrial wood coatings have been the preferred choice of OEMs to beautify and protect wood products. Leading manufacturers of cabinetry, furniture and flooring rely on our stains, glazes, clear coats and primers for the looks they desire, and the protection they require.
The chemistry behind the coatings has evolved from conventional technologies, to the latest innovations in high solids, waterborne and UV-cure technologies....formulations that have a reduced impact on the environment, while still meeting the stringent aesthetics and durability requirements of our customers.
Manufacturers of wood products also rely on AkzoNobel’s market-leading Casco wood adhesives and board resins as the bonding agents in engineered wood and laminates. These products are used to make furniture, cabinetry, flooring and constructive wood components like I-beams and window frames.
Manufacturers use engineered wood because they are more dimensional, stable and uniform then solid wood, and it’s not prone to cracking. Engineered wood products actually offer manufacturers a stronger, more durable substrate than traditional wood, thanks in part to our Casco Adhesive systems that provide innovative permanent bonding solutions for all types of engineered wood products.
Our customers benefit from our complete product offering of custom adhesives and coatings, and application equipment developed by our global network of R&D labs. A comprehensive technical service program ensures that our products will work effectively and efficiently in OEM plants.
