Considerations When Choosing Adhesives

Avoid Certain Adhesives

PVA’s (Polyvinyl acetate) should be used with caution due to its weaker bonding strength on Accoya wood and extended clamp times. Melamine urea formaldehyde (MUF) adhesives should be avoided entirely for Accoya applications.

Testing Before Application

Always test your chosen adhesive on a sample of Accoya wood to ensure compatibility and performance. Consulting with your supplier for specific product recommendations and application techniques is advised.
