Engineered Wood Flooring Using H.B. Fuller's Hot Melt Polyurethane Adhesives

Our innovative solutions, including Rapidex® and Swift® adhesives, allow you to increase your production output while reducing labor costs and capital expenditures. Plus, you’re backed by the support of H.B. Fuller’s global and local commercial experts, application engineers and technical service teams..


Rapidex®  and Rakoll® viscosity profile at application is shown to be more forgiving and has a reduction in scrape when compared to typical PUR hot melts that are not formulated specifically for EWF lamination.
