Meet your challenges head on with our proven solutions.

Solenis is proud to be one of the top specialty chemical companies in the world. We are a highly respected supplier to manufacturers of adhesives, sealants, paints, inks, coatings, textiles and engineered wood products. Our versatile product portfolio for specialty applications helps manufacturers around the world meet their market challenges and outperform their competitors.

We offer many unique chemistries that deliver a variety of performance properties, including enhanced water resistance, water insolubility, adhesion, toughness, flexibility, high temperature resistance and anti-blocking. These chemistries enable our customers to improve their existing products and processes, as well as create new products with novel properties.

We also offer a line of formaldehyde-free wood adhesives formulated with soy flour and a proprietary crosslinking resin. These soy-based adhesives offer manufacturers of hardwood plywood and other engineered wood products the opportunity to reduce the formaldehyde emissions of their products and comply with formaldehyde regulations. Notably, more than half of the hardwood plywood manufactured in North America is made with our formaldehyde-free wood adhesives.
