Adhesive and Binder

GOHSENOL™ has been widely used as an adhesive and/or binder having the following properties:

  1. Excellent adhesion
  2. The property of improving initial adhesion and drying speeds combined with a filler such as clay
  3. Excellent resistance to oil and plasticizers
  4. Excellent film strength

Additionally, G-type GOHSENOL™ is excellent in remoistening adherence.
