Hexion’s suite of thermoset resins

Hexion, the US-based leader in thermoset resins, displayed its waste saving adhesive system that has completed ANSI structural certifications for both glue laminated beams and cross-laminated timber.

At Ligna, it said the versatile EcoBind adhesives for structural engineered wood products recently completed all independent laboratory testing required by the

American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

The EcoBind 6500 system complies with the International Code Council’s (ICC) Tall Wood Code changes adopted for the 2021 version of the International Building Code.

The EcoBind adhesive system employs separate application technology to maximise adhesive utilisation. The layup of all certification test samples was completed with the adhesive components separately applied to each wood substrate to duplicate the manufacturing process.

In building and construction applications, the adhesive enhances the structure of a home with greater fire resistance, which adds precious seconds for occupants to evacuate or fire fighters to rescue or extinguish the fire.
