Adhesive Application

The book "Adhesives in the furniture industry" is available in English

Edizioni Goliardiche, in collaboration with Catas and Avisa-Federchimica (the Italian association of adhesives manufacturers), recently published the English version of the book "Adhesives in the furniture industry". The volume, written by Franco Bulian, director of Catas and author of several scientific publications in the field, provides a comprehensive overview of the role of adhesives in the world of furniture production and woodworking.

The book, structured in nine chapters and over 300 pages, explores issues ranging from adhesive bonding theory to practical applications in industry. Topics such as edge application, substrates, laminating materials, furniture assembly methods and the classification of different 'families' of adhesives are covered.

The furniture industry has undergone significant transformations over the last five decades, reaching a phase of maturity. This evolution has created new relationships between industry players, protagonists of a change aimed at optimising processes through 'specialisation'. Practical knowledge results from the interlinking of different fields and materials, between wood and chemistry, between wood and formaldehyde, between wood and vinyl-based adhesives, in the constant search for 'best practices' that not only deliver the best quality results, but also take into account the health of working environments and environmental impact.

The availability of this work in English is an important step for international audiences, providing access to a valuable source of information, tests, checks, insights and practical guidance. The author's ability to easily navigate between theoretical and practical issues results in an authentic compendium on adhesive bonds that is sure to be useful to many industry professionals.
