jowat-wood-adhesive-PUR The new product family in the Jowapur® series provides a comprehensive portfolio of certified 1-component PUR prepolymer adhesives, with different product versions for a wide range of manufacturing processes in load-bearing glued wood construction.

Adhesives for Load-bearing Glued Wood Applications

The adhesives in the new product family have been tested according to EN 15425:2017 and fully meet the requirements for load-bearing glued wood applications due to their composition, characteristics and processing parameters. The adhesives can be used for fingerjointing as well as for glulam, offer the choice of assembly times between 10 and 60 minutes, and facilitate an assembly time-pressing time ratio of up to 1:1 that has never been achieved before.

Jowapur® prepolymers for load-bearing glued wood construction are characterized by their particularly high initial strength and internal hold of the bondline that increases reliability during the curing of the adhesive in fingerjointing operations. Industrial users can optimize their processes by choosing the formulation best suited for their application. A simple change of adhesive, for instance, can lead to the realization of an increase in capacity or alternatively improve process reliability without the need for major investments.

Formaldehyde and VOC- free Formulations

With the new Jowapur® product family, Jowat continues to build on single-component, moisture-curing polyurethane (PUR) prepolymer adhesives that impress due to formulations that are free of formaldehyde and VOC, and which facilitate lower application amounts compared to alternative adhesive systems. The new Jowapur® series provides certified and highly efficient bonding solutions for manufacturing all kinds of load-bearing glued timber and all generally accepted application technologies for that purpose.

The product portfolio is complemented by Jowat’s own comprehensive service in all things adhesive. Since 1919, the globally active adhesives specialist from Detmold has systematically and successfully been building an impressive product diversity, deep understanding of the industries as well as close customer contact, and is therefore celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.
