Soy-Based Adhesives Provide Wood Composites That Meet California Emission Standards
Snapshot: Ashland- Hercules, working cooperatively with the Forest Products Laboratory, have developed these soy adhesives and have commercialized them for interior plywood, engineered wood flooring and particleboard. This technology also allows wood manufacturers to replace adhesives based on fossil fuel by biomass-based adhesives. Over half of the interior plywood market is currently using soy-based adhesives.
