Furniture

BASF offers a broad range of water-based adhesive raw materials that have been specifically developed for technical lamination and for the formulation of foam bonding adhesives.

The furniture industry has a growing demand for attractive, good-value and robust alternatives to solid-wood furniture. As far as kitchen and bathroom furniture is concerned, more and more wood fiberboards are coated with plastic film. Most common are medium-density fiberboards (MDF) that can have different three-dimensional profiles. As a general rule, they are thermo-laminated with hard PVC, PET or ABS films. This process makes high demands on the lamination adhesives used: In order to ensure a perfect surface, they must neither contain flocking nor particles. Strong adhesion to the substrate and great cohesion are a must in order to guarantee stable anchoring, lasting for many years and prevent the film from peeling off. For this kind of application, adhesives based on polyurethane dispersions are used almost exclusively.

Technical Lamination

Our contribution

BASF offers a broad range of waterbased adhesive raw materials that have been specifically developed for technical thermo lamination. Our polyurethane dispersions can be used for the production not only of latent-reactive but also of two-component adhesives. They can be activated at low temperatures and are extremely thermostable. Due to their extremely fast setting properties they resist the restoring force of deep-drawn films directly after the laminating press is opened. Our laboratory has at its disposal the required testing and lamination methods (e.g. a Bürkle press) to simulate all relevant customer processes.

Foam Bonding

Gluing upholstery foam to various carrier materials requires special adhesives. After being applied to the foam they must not penetrate the open-pored material but remain on the surface. In order to achieve this, a foam-bonding, dispersion-based adhesive is generally sprayed onto the respective surface via a spray gun, which coagulates whilst being sprayed. The adhesives that are used to produce seating, sofas and office furniture must have high levels of fast acting wet strength. In addition, they must be able to absorb great tension in the shortest of times and form a soft, non-noticeable glue line. 

Our contribution

BASF offers a broad range of waterbased adhesive raw materials that have been specifically developed for the formulation of foam bonding adhesives. Our dispersions can be used for one- and two-component systems. With our additives, the desired properties can be exactly adjusted. Our laboratory has at its disposal the required testing and lamination methods (e.g. spray guns and spray station) to simulate all relevant customer processes.
