Momentive offers a broad range of melamine-based products for everything from cabinet veneers to structural finger-jointing applications.
Because of their moisture resistance and strength, these adhesives are ideal for kitchen and bathroom cabinets and fixtures. They also exhibit excellent stability under high heat, making them an option for structural finger joints, especially for manufacturers who prefer a clear or light-colored glue line.
Melamine-based resins come in powdered or liquid methylated forms and can be cured via radio frequency or cold set methods.
Momentive’s melamine adhesive MR-84A/M-605LY was the first adhesive under the fire ratings standards adopted by the American Lumber Standard Committee (ALSC) to be certified via Test Method A for finger-jointed stud applications.
For laminated beams and I-joists, Momentive offers MF-3L/M-610LY, which has passed ASTM D-7247 testing and complies with the new CSA0112.9 standard.
