Solenis offers many unique chemistries that deliver a variety of performance properties, including enhanced water resistance, water insolubility, adhesion, toughness, flexibility, high temperature resistance and anti-blocking. These chemistries enable customers to improve their existing products and processes, as well as create new products with novel properties.

These soy-based adhesives offer manufacturers of hardwood plywood, particleboard, medium-density fiberboard and engineered wood flooring the opportunity to reduce the formaldehyde emissions of their products and stay ahead of formaldehyde regulations.
