Industrial Adhesives

Industrial adhesives are used in a multitude of applications including the manufacture of wood-based products like particle board, plywood, chipboard, mdf and laminated products

The global market is estimated at US$37bn by 2027

Formaldehyde is a known carcinogen. Increasing concern over toxicity means legislation to ban its use is being enacted

Nilo industrial adhesives have significant benefits over formaldehyde adhesives:

  • Produced from waste plastic
  • Non toxic to produce, in use and at end of life
  • Carbon impact is currently unknown

We are currently working with a multinational company involved in ‘wood board’ manufacture, applications and distribution

A Nilo alternative to the formaldehyde-based adhesive has been developed and is currently being tested for use in product manufacture
