 Multibond EZ-1 wood adhesiveFranklin Adhesives & Polymers Introduces a Single Quick-Set Adhesive that Meets Multiple Applications in the Plant


Franklin Adhesives & Polymers, a division of Franklin International, is introducing a noteworthy adhesive for wood products that single-handedly meets the breadth of bonding needs within the assembly plant: the versatile new Multibond EZ-1 wood adhesive.

Multibond EZ-1 is a one-component cross linking polyvinyl acetate (PVA) emulsion that offers an extremely quick speed of set, high water resistance and a viscosity of 3,200 to 4,500 cps for a manageable assembly time of five to ten minutes. These characteristics combine to help make the adhesive one of the best all-around adhesives for manufacturing wood products. It can be used for high frequency and hot or cold press, edge and facing gluing and finger jointing as well as assembly.

This versatile wood adhesive stands out for its high water resistance. It meets or exceeds European Standard DIN EN 204 D3, ANSI/HPMA 1994 Type II water resistance, ANSI/HPVA EF 2002 (Bond Line Test) and NWWDA Type I and Type II water resistance – while also meeting ASTM D-5572 for dry use and European Standard DIN EN 14257 2006-09 (WATT 91) for heat resistance. This environmentally friendly formula also complies with the European E-1 formaldehyde emission standard, has met the U.S. CARB standard in various constructions and qualifies for LEED credits.

In addition to Multibond EZ-1, Franklin Adhesives & Polymers produces adhesives for assembly, radio frequency gluing, engineered flooring, window and door parts, and interior millwork, under the names of Assembly, ReacTITE and Titebond – as well as Multibond. Each of these product families provides a set of properties designed to perform a specific function within a woodworking operation and meet specific price points.
