Prelam adhesives are urethane emulsions designed to bond multiple types of substrates. The adhesive can be applied and processed by traditional methods, but is also uniquely designed to enable the user to apply the adhesive in a thin film on one of the desired substrates to be bonded, dried, and then later applied to the other substrate and then heat activated to initiate the bonding and curing process.
Prelam adhesives can be used to bond:
- Wood Veneer
- High Pressure Laminate
- No adhesive spraying
- No Free Isocyanates released into the atmosphere
- Contains no VOCs
- No pot live restriction
- High performance – excellent peel strength, creep and heat resistance
