Franklin Adhesives & Polymers, a division of Franklin International, manufactures adhesives for the domestic and global wood furniture, millwork, engineered-lamination and filter-fabrication markets.

The division supplies product and local service in more than 60 countries on six continents across the globe and operates a plant in Guangzhou, China to serve the Pacific Rim more efficiently.


Franklin Adhesives & Polymers has led the way in the innovation of adhesives for wood and wood products and offers an adhesive solution for most applications in the wood product manufacturing plant. Under the trusted brand names Titebond, Multibond, ReacTITE and Advantage, these products provide superior performance in wood assembly, solid edge and face gluing, engineered product lamination and finger jointing. Two recent product innovations include Advantage 460, developed specifically for bonding HPL and wood veneer to fire-rated or borated particleboard and fiberboard, and Advantage EP-980, a high-performing emulsion polymer isocyanate system (EPI) for use in the manufacture of structural insulated panels (SIPS).


Franklin Adhesives & Polymers’ broad offering of pressure sensitive adhesives are packaged under the brand names Covinax, Micronax and Acrynax, and include a line of microsphere repositionable adhesives for applications that require continuous re-sticking. The division also offers the FilterFAB line of fast-setting, powerful adhesives for use in filter-fabrication.

As one of the few adhesives manufacturers in the U.S. that polymerizes its own adhesives, Franklin Adhesives & Polymers is well positioned to both develop innovative products for particular applications and customize existing products to meet specific customer requirements. The division also maintains a technical service team of experts who work with customers to ensure complete satisfaction with adhesive performance.
