Henkel and Covestro are cooperating to promote the sustainability of adhesives in timber construction. Covestro provides polyurethane-based materials based on bio-attributed raw materials, which are used by Henkel for high-performance adhesive solutions. The German chemical companies Henkel and Covestro are joining forces to promote the sustainability of adhesives in load-bearing timber construction. Such elements, such as cross-laminated timber or glulam, can be found in a variety of interior and exterior building applications, from stairs to facades and load-bearing components. For this purpose, Covestro Henkel provides polyurethane-based materials. These are based on bio-attributed raw materials that are assigned using mass balancing. Henkel then uses these for high-performance adhesive solutions.
