Machining and Gluing
In general, Accoya wood can be glued using most commonly used wood adhesive systems. Particularly good results are obtained with polyurethane (PU), emulsion poly isocyanate (EPI), epoxy and phenol resorcinol formaldehyde (PRF) adhesives. The results of gluing with polyvinyl acetate (PVAc) improve with longer clamp times but it should not be solely relied on for strong joints. Melamine urea formaldehyde (MUF) should be avoided. When gluing Accoya wood it is strongly recommended to test first and if needed contact your adhesive supplier(s) as they have in-depth knowledge of the gluing process and their adhesives. Use should always be in line with best practice, design and performance specific demands. Gluing Accoya and products offered by adhesive system partners is part of the Accoya Approved Manufacturer training program.
