Creating the right bond
They look and feel like wood….but in reality, many of the ‘wood’ products you own are actually made from lower-cost composite wood products – MDF, particle board or laminates. AkzoNobel’s Casco Adhesives are used by furniture, flooring and laminated beam manufacturers to permanently bond wood particles together. The result is a durable, tough substrate that holds up even under the harshest conditions.
Our adhesive customers benefit from a complete product offering of custom adhesives and application equipment developed by our own R&D labs. A comprehensive technical service program ensures that our glue will work effectively and efficiently in your plant.
Casco also serves the wood-based panel and foundry industries with industrial resins used for wood paneling. Our BoardModel™ has become the industry standard for control and quality optimization systems for wood-based board production.
Analyscentrum is our central research and analytical laboratory for Casco Adhesives. Here, our chemists are working diligently to develop sustainable technologies for the adhesives industry. AkzoNobel is at the forefront of eco-friendly research into the reduction and elimination of formaldehyde and other chemicals from adhesive products. We’ve even learned a thing or two from starchy vegetables, like potatoes and corn, that could provide viable solutions to this "sticky problem" in the years to come.
