Bio-Adhesives of the Future

BindEthics Glue Research

Adhesive is the only part in the production of wood panels that is synthetic, toxic, and non recyclable. BindEthics is offering an adhesive that is sustainable, non-toxic and is not derived from fossil fuels.

When replacing traditional fossil-fuel-derived adhesives with a biobased alternative, engineered wood panels turn into completely sustainable products that can be recycled becoming part of the circular economy cycle
