XILOBOND T & XILOBOND T15: THE COLLANTI CONCORDE ADHESIVES FOR ENGINEERED TIMBER
Over the past few years, the Italian company Collanti Concorde has been working to develop two products specifically for engineered wood: XILOBOND T and XILOBOND T15.
These are one component polyurethane adhesives for structural bondings. The historic Collanti Concorde XILOBOND T, was certified, in cooperation with the Materialprüfungsanstalt Universität Stuttgart (MPA University Stuttgart), according to EN 15425:2008, which is specific for load-bearing timber structures.
Moreover, from January 2023, XILOBOND T15 is certified according to EN 15425:2017, which is also specific for load-bearing timber structures.
The certification process took place in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute for Wood Research and Wilhelm-Klauditz-Institut, WKI, and the Materialprüfungsanstalt Universität Stuttgart (MPA University Stuttgart).
The difference between the two is in the opening time of the adhesive: XILOBOND T has an opening time of 45 minutes while XILOBOND T15 15 minutes. XILOBOND T and XILOBOND T15 are both formulated with special high-performance polyurethane resins and are suitable for bonding conifers such as spruce, white fir and pine, intended for the production of blockboard panels, multilayer beams, semi-finished products subject to high temperature and humidity exposure. They can also be used for the production of structural beams, duo/trio laminated, Cross Laminated Timber (CLT panels) and for bonding thermal modified woods (like Thermowod type).
Their most important characteristics:
- They are one-component adhesives.
- No mixing systems are required for their use.
- Their adhesive lines are neutral, which enhances the aesthetic perception of the manufact.
On the Collanti Concorde website (www.collanticoncorde.it), you can find a wide range of adhesives for numerous application needs in the wood industry. Kindly note from 15th to 19th May 2023 Collanti Concorde will attend LIGNA, the world's leading trade fair for woodworking and wood processing plants in Hannover.
