Highly reactive adhesive polymers from the company can be crosslinked with UV radiation, and subsequently expanded into low density foamed adhesive
And, for applications where holdout on porous substrates or mileage is critical, our AEROBOND foamed adhesive
system is right for you.
The use of foamed adhesive
in cabinet assembly can reduce adhesive consumption up to 50 percent, while improving gap filling in drawer bottom and cabinet back attachment.

National Starch presented what it calls the Aerobond system for creating a foamed adhesive.
The foamed adhesive then can be directly applied to the substrate via a roll coater or glue spreader.
However, enough of the foamed adhesive stays above the porous surface to create a strong bond.

HOUSTON -- Kraton Polymers LLC (Kraton), a leading global performance polymer producer, today announced the successful introduction of highly reactive adhesive polymers that can be cross-linked with UV radiation, and subsequently expanded into low density foamed adhesive systems.
Through continued research and development efforts, Kraton has further expanded the UV reactive technology into low density foamed adhesive systems.
Applications include use in sprayable foamed adhesives, the preparation of gaskets and sealants having the ability to expand in place, and potentially in acoustical and vibration damping applications.
The standard assembly method is to use glue printers and hot melt adhesives, or robotics and air-sets, or foamed adhesives
