Franklin Adhesives debuts Multibond FJ-3 fingerjointing adhesive

The new Multibond FJ-3 offers a remarkably cost-effective solution for finger jointing of interior millwork and other wood products. It meets the requirements of the ASTM D—5572 Dry Use Standard and European Standard DIN EN204 D3.

Franklin Franklin Adhesives & Polymers, a division of Franklin International, delivers great value with the introduction of its new Multibond FJ-3, a high-performance wood adhesive specially formulated for finger jointing of interior stock within the Latin American, United States and other global markets.

The new Multibond FJ-3 offers the convenience and power of a one-part cross linking polyvinyl acetate (PVA) emulsion adhesive. It exceeds the requirements of ASTM D-5572 Dry Use Standard and European Standard DIN EN204 D3 and offers superior heat resistance, enabling bonded stock to withstand high temperatures in the field and during overseas shipping.

As a one-part adhesive, Multibond FJ-3 requires no mixing, increasing productivity in the factory. Good handling capabilities and easy extrusion on most finger joint application systems further increase production efficiency. It offers high water resistance and can easily be cleaned up with water in the wet state. In addition, a low minimum use temperature enables this product to be applied in temperatures as low as 4.5° C. It also is characterized by excellent stability, providing a 12-month shelf life.

“We are pleased to bring the high value of Multibond FJ-3 to our customers across Latin America and in other international markets,” said Danielle Milam, Franklin Adhesives & Polymers’ vice president, Latin America. “This product is easy to use and offers excellent value without compromise to performance, exceeding DIN EN 204 D3 and ASTM 5572 Dry Use requirements for both water and heat resistance.”
