Especially in the furniture industry, bonding is an indispensable method for joining two or several carriers. Bonding allows the production of composites that improve the living quality and often allow the manufacture of innovative products. Upholstery In this branch of industry, solvent-based adhesives have been used exclusively until recently. Since some of these products did no longer meet the higher requirements made on environmental compatibility, new technologies had to be found. An alternative are water-soluble adhesives containing only few or no solvents at all meaning that they are much more compatible with the environment. Forbo Adhesives offers this branch of industry an extensive range of both solvent-based and solvent-free adhesives for a wide variety of applications and manufacturing methods. 3-D membrane pressing Membrane pressing, also called 3D technology, has changed the entire market for furniture front panels, and the triumphant progress of 3D-coated front panels continues in kitchen, living and sleeping room furniture. Outstanding design opportunities, hard-wearing surfaces and economical processing have made an essential contribution to this success. Right from the start, Forbo Adhesives has been among the pioneers of this technology in the field of adhesives technology, supplying tailor-made products that make the manufacturing processes even more efficient and safer and ensure an even better end product quality.
