Hexion Specialty Chemicals, headquartered in Columbus, Ohio recently formed a cooperation with the Finnish Lappeenranta University of Technology giving the worldwide supplier of resins and adhesives for the wood products industry the opportunity to hold a series of lectures in an academic setting.
One of the lectures focusing on ‘Formaldehyde emissions from wood based panels’ was well received by students and customers from Hexion alike.
The highlight of this series of lectures, which took place last November, was a plant visit to Hexion’s site in Puhos, Finland where students experienced the manufacturing products studies during the ‘Synthetic polymers, glues and resins’ course.
*Hexion’s research and measuring process has resulted in the development of EcoBind products that today are said to meet or exceed all global emission standards including E1, EO, Japanese F**** and the new California Air Resource Board (CARB) standards.
