Composite resin specialist Hexion Inc has introduced a new two-component adhesive system for applications such as cross-laminated timbers for tall wood buildngs and glue-laminated wood beams.

 The adhesive system includes the Ecobind 6500 resin and Wonderbond Hardener M650Y which exceed all strength, exterior exposure and high-temperature requirements of the North American Structural Wood standards.

 ‘Hexion provides the enabling lamination technology for one of the most sustainable products on earth – engineered wood,’ said Scott McIntyre, North American business director for adhesives. ‘To ensure the lasting durability and performance of these sustainable engineered wood materials, we have had this new adhesive tested by multiple third party organizations.’
