Woman opening up a cupboard door representing adhesives for panel lamination by H.B. Fuller.

H.B. Fuller is a leading innovator in adhesives for the panel lamination industry. Our comprehensive range of panel lamination products, from water-based adhesives and hot melts to sophisticated moisture cure hot melt polyurethanes, provides many benefits, including efficiency, increased speed, increased capacity and reduced space.

At H.B. Fuller, we make it our business to understand your panel lamination processes. Every day, we listen and collaborate with our customers to deliver the technical solutions and panel lamination adhesives that help you thrive. H.B. Fuller can provide you a solution to help with faster cycles, reduced costs, fewer defects, and less time spent on rework. Let us show you how we can put our capabilities to work for you.

Our product line of panel lamination adhesives allows bonding of a wide range of materials to wood and does not change the status of wood as a renewable resource, and we can help address panel lamination adhesives for customers pursuing certification.

 

Our adhesive portfolio includes products designed for your requirements:

  • Increase speed - minimize your work-in-process to reduce process lead time
  • Increase capacity - maximize your exit rate and grow production volume without additional space requirements
  • Create a lean panel lamination manufacturing environment - reduce work-in-process, scrap and increase line speeds
  • Adhere to a variety of substrates - low surface energy plastics, metals and foils
  • Reduce labor - fully automate your process with feeder systems and secondary manufacturing operations
  • Improve efficiency - reduce process steps and identify defects immediately
  • Reduce capital expenditures - add capacity at lower cost with higher ROI
  • Reduce space - immediate trimming after lamination; eliminate batch processing

With more than a century of experience, coupled with a commitment to continuous research and innovation, has made Rakoll® adhesives one of the most trusted names in the industry. We offer:

  • Cold press, hot press and radio frequency products
  • Low coat weight and high wet tack products offer improved efficiency and reduction in adhesive consumption
  • Minimizes grain raise and can produce an aggressive tack quickly
  • Vinyl lamination - excellent adhesion to polyvinyl chloride (PVC) film
  • No added formaldehyde products

H.B. Fuller develops, produces and sells adhesive bonding systems for the following panel market segments:

  • Caravanning
  • Trucks
  • Security and fireproof doors
  • Pre-fabricated buildings
  • Technical floor
  • Building panels
  • Roof elements
  • Fire resistant elements

Our sandwich panel lamination adhesives can be used in manual, semi-continuous or continuous production lines and by different application systems, such as:

  • Roller
  • Slot die
  • Spray
  • Extrusion

Materials capable to be bonded with the different our sandwich panel adhesive systems are:

  • Wood (MDF, plywood, particle fiber board, natural wood)
  • Metal (aluminum, galvanized steel, steel)
  • PVC
  • Rigid polyester

To be bonded with themselves or with:

  • Expanded polystyrene (EPS)
  • Extruded polystyrene
  • Rockwool
  • Polyurethane foam
  • Honeycomb (metal, paper, wood, aluminum)
