Wood glues are primarily designed for the purpose of joining untreated wooden surfaces with each other. The natural raw material consists of cellulose, lignin and wood type specific ingredients as for example resins and tannic acid. The structure and the ingredients of a wood species have an important influence on its workability and bondability. Wood species therefore differ with respect to these properties. Some tropic woods, for instance, are quite difficult to bond.

 

Also joining wood with varnished or plastic-laminated surfaces makes high demands on the quality and performance of the adhesive. It is therefore recommended to use high-quality adhesives like Pattex that ensure reliable bonding results.
