  Product information

Product name

4001 series resins

Product description

The product is a phenol resorcinol formaldehyde adhesive for engineered wood products.

The 4001 resin series, numbered 4001 to 4001-8, varies in alkalinity to regulate the gel and cure speed of the adhesive. The 5830 hardener series is a ready-to-use liquid for use with automatic meter mix equipment and direct application extrusion. The hardener series offers 2 types, either the 5830E or the 5830S, which differ by reactivity. The 5830E series hardeners are used with conventional heating equipment or with a room temperature cure above 18°C. The 5830S is formulated to tolerate long assembly times.

The adhesive is designed to be used as the primary adhesive in the manufacture of structural wood products, such as glued-laminated beams, I-joists and structural finger joints, which are used under exterior exposure conditions.

Disclaimer

This evaluation is issued by the Canadian Construction Materials Centre (CCMC), part of the Construction Research Centre at the National Research Council of Canada (NRC). The evaluation must be read in the context of the entire CCMC Registry of Product Assessments and the legislated applicable building code in effect.

The CCMC was established in 1988 on behalf of the applicable regulator (i.e., the provinces and territories) to ensure—through assessment—conformity of alternative and acceptable solutions to regional building codes as determined by the local authority having jurisdiction (AHJ) as part of the issuance of a building permit.

It is the responsibility of the local AHJs, design professionals, and specifiers to confirm that the evaluation is current and has not been withdrawn or superseded by a later issue. Please refer to the website or contact:
