Veneer Composing

Northwest Adhesives, Inc. offers high performing, cost efficient, “pre-coated” tapes for composing wood veneers, parquet flooring or LVL veneer into durable, continuous full sized sheets. When used with Northwest “spot glues” our PS-tapes provide a continuous, more durable wood assembly and improves lay-up efficiency and reduces cost. Some customers also invest in “Re-Coat” where they use both Spot glue and PS-tape together for best holding power.

Corrugated Reinforcing

Many box producers now use CR-tapes or CR-thin strings to add strength only where needed and may realize lower cost by using lighter weight paper components or can create stronger containers for multiple trips.
