WISA BioBond is a new bio-based bonding solution for producing plywood. This bio-innovation is a perfect example of UPM’s Biofore thinking in action:
Firstly, it is a sustainable alternative. WISA BioBond solution replaces fossil-based phenol with bio-based lignin in the adhesive used in the production of plywood.
Secondly, it showcases the innovative use of industrial side streams in a circular economy. The lignin is obtained as a by-product generated during the kraft pulping process.
WISA BioBond has been rigorously tested and it is now ready to be used in the production of the market leading WISA plywood products.
