Jowat is a comprehensive supplier of these markets, including many special applications, providing a wide range of adhesives combined with extensive technological expertise Adhesive manufacturers and processors have to respond to constantly renewed challenges based on the increasing demands of the wood and furniture industry concerning product reliability, process and occupational safety.
Manufacturing processes in the woodworking industry are increasingly automated and interlinked. This calls for adhesive technologies that are efficient, process reliable, flexible and durable. Additionally, workplaces as well as the end product are expected to meet stringent ecological standards. Equal in versatility and matching these high standards are the adhesive systems from Jowat. Their reliability for these applications has been proven for many decades.
Kantenklebung, Profilummantelung, Flachkaschierung und Beschichtungen, Sandwichelementefertigung, 3D-FJowat adhesives with the most diverse product characteristics are used successfully for the standard applications of the wood and furniture industry: edgebanding, profile wrapping, flat lami- nation and coating, assembly of sandwich elements, manufac- ture of 3D furniture fronts by membrane pressing technology, postforming and worktop sealing, flooring (parquet and lami- nate), dowelling, frames and carcase bonding, and in the manu- facture of doors.
Only certified adhesives, another key product group in the Jowat portfolio, are used for the manufacture of solid wood for con- struction, glued laminated timber and cross-laminated timber. Solid wood bonding, manufacture of window frame scantlings and window frames, fingerjointing, edge bonded and multilayer panels, and assembly bonding, are further applications in the wood processing sector.
Manufacturers of upholstered furniture – requiring adhesives suitable for a high level of manual assembly and a wide variety of different materials – have been using Jowat adhesives for many years now, just like the mattress and foam converting in- dustry. Growing demands in the mattress industry on efficiency, health, comfort, and safety, have launched innovative develop- ments of our adhesives.
The adhesives used for window profile wrapping are faced by substantial challenges: durability of the end products, the grow- ing variety of substrates and decor materials, plus faster down- line processing. The manufacture of insulating compounds, stone- ware compacting, installing roof insulation materials, cladding elements, preassembled housing manufacture, and assembly bonding, are further applications in the building and construction industry.
