For lighter and more stable furniture elements!
It is already common practice in automobile and aircraft construction and the door industry, and it is becoming more interesting to the furniture industry – reducing the weight of building components without having to lose relevant stability. For this purpose, Kleiberit developed system solutions based on their experience in the furniture field, their wide product line and their many years of expertise in PUR adhesives. Reactive PUR hotmelts make the continuous production of lightweight panels possible. KLEIBERIT products allow for line speeds up to 40m/min.
The application can take place with a roller applicator or slot nozzle. Besides high strength, cross linking PUR adhesives don’t bring water into humidity sensitive systems made from wood and paper products. KLEIBERIT also developed special solutions for lightweight panels without frames. KLEIBERIT adhesives can be used in concealed edge technology to close open edges with flexible, thin edges allowing furniture manufacturers to process with their own machinery.
In addition, precisely localized strengthening with an innovative dowel which is filled with PUR adhesive is the basis for the secure fastening of hardware fittings. Due to the results of trials which were conducted with industry partners at the Institute for Wood Technology in Dresden, KLEIBERIT is confident that this development will pave the way for thinner surface layers, wider mesh cores, and more flexible structures. KLEIBERIT is not only an adhesive supplier but also a partner in technology offering producers and processors complete solutions for inline production of lightweight panels.
