Composite Board Resins
Metadynea offers a wide range of formaldehyde-based resins for particle board (PB), dry processed fiber board (MDF, HDF, THDF), oriented strand board (OSB) and plywood (PWL). This covers emission classes from E1, CARB II, F**** down to emissions like natural wood (AsWood™) as well as resins for special applications like “water resistant” boards, HDF flooring, etc.
Metadynea Austria has decades of experience in adhesives for the woodworking and the paper saturation industry. We have know-how in different kinds of binders but most expertise we have gained in formaldehyde-based resins. This knowledge is applied in our advanced industrial resin production.
High level of automation and the possibility to precisely adjust every batch results in high quality resins with a high stability of parameters from batch to batch. Thus, our customers are able to work without any adjustments in their process from one delivery to another.
Our plant laboratories are equipped with the most modern equipment to make precise measurements not only to fulfil the standard requirements but also to follow and control non-standard quality parameters of resins like real-time monitoring of resin parameters during synthesis.
Metadynea’s R&D center in Krems has the most modern analytical equipment, laboratory sized reactors for trial synthesis, and application equipment that allows us to test resin properties and to simulate industrial processes.
Metadynea Austria continuously develops its products to maintain the leading position in our markets. We constantly invest in the improvement of existing processes and in the development of new resins.
UF Board Resins
UF resins and adhesives are classified as thermosetting polymers and are produced by a condensation polymerization reaction between urea and formaldehyde. These UF polymers have proven to be excellent adhesives for wooden materials. Due to their high reactivity and cost efficiency, they are the most popular binders for interior products.
Metadynea delivers UF resins and adhesives in liquid form with a wide range in viscosity, solids content, and molar ratio. When needed Metadynea tailor-makes products for each customer. This customizing involves designing the resin for the viscosity, solids content, reactivity, tack, and emission properties to meet the specified process and environmental needs.
Our UF products are environmentally friendly and capable of meeting or exceeding the various performance criteria required by the different standards of ANSI, NPA, ASTM, EN, and ISO.
MUF resins and adhesives are classified as thermosetting polymers produced by a condensation reaction between melamine, urea and formaldehyde. These MUF polymers can be formulated to provide various degrees of water and weather resistance for use in exterior, humid and indoor climate. Added variation in viscosity and reactivity give these resins a wide application area, greatly exceeding that of UF resins.
Metadynea manufactures MUF resins in liquid form. The products are designed for use in the production of wood-based panels. Where applicable, our MUF products have been tested and approved by official testing bodies for use in the building industry.
Metadynea has developed a wide range of resin technologies to offer the best possible solution for the different process conditions employed by a variety of customers. Metadynea’s MUF resins and adhesives can be modified to meet specific plant performance criteria, including formaldehyde emission requirements, reactivity, tack, assembly time and physical properties. Our MUF products are environmentally friendly and capable of meeting or exceeding the various performance criteria required by the different standards like ANSI, NPA, ASTM, EN, and ISO.
