Product information

Product name

Adhesive 1263/Hardener 9563

Product description

The product is a 2-component melamine-formaldehyde adhesive for engineered wood products.

Adhesive 1263 is a liquid melamine-formaldehyde resin that is mixed with Hardener 9563, a liquid acid catalyst, to form a cross-linked melamine polymer adhesive that can be cured using radio frequency, elevated temperature or ambient temperature.

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, that are used under exterior exposure conditions.

  Technical information

This evaluation is based on demonstrated conformance with the following criteria:

Evaluation requirements
Criteria number Criteria name
CSA O112.9-10Evaluation of Adhesives for Structural Wood Products (Exterior Exposure)

CSA O112.9, "Evaluation of Adhesives for Structural Wood Products (Exterior Exposure)"

Exterior exposure adhesives are used primarly to bond solid wood to solid wood material in structural wood products such as laminated lumber, edge-glued lumber, and finger-joined lumber designed for wet or exterior service conditions. Adhesives for exterior use include those subjected to repeated wetting and drying and continous use under high humidity, but do not include those used in below-ground, ground-contact, and marine uses. This standard is not restricted to a specific type of adhesive.

Administrative information


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of the local AHJs, design professionals, and specifiers to confirm that the evaluation is current and has not been withdrawn or superseded by a later issue.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

The information and opinions in this evaluation are directed to those who have the appropriate degree of experience to use and apply its contents (i.e., AHJs, design professionals and specifiers). This evaluation is only valid when the product is installed in strict compliance with the stated conditions and limitations of evaluation and the applicable local building code. In circumstances where no applicable local building permit is issued and that no confirmation of compliance ‘for use in the intended field application’ is undertaken, this evaluation is null and void in all respects. This evaluation is provided without representation, warranty, or guarantee of any kind, expressed, or implied, and the NRC provides no endorsement for any evaluated material, product, system or service described herein. The NRC accepts no responsibility whatsoever arising in any way from any and all use and reliance on the information contained in this evaluation with respect to its compliance to the referenced code(s) and standard(s).
