CHIMAR develops and licenses competitive, state-of-the-art industrial technology (know-how) for the production of:

  • Amino & Phenolic  resins for standard and special applications of MDF, Particleboard, OSB, Plywood, Engineered wood (e.g. Glulam, LVL, CLT).
  • Impregnation syrups for laminated paper, LPL, HPL
  • Low emission resin systems (E1 plus, CARB II, F****). CHIMAR is a pioneer technology provider in the reduction of board emissions, even down to the level of natural wood
  • NAF binders (no-added formaldehyde based resins) with emissions below the level of wood.
  • Bio-based resins derived from renewable biomass products or by-products.
  • Conventional Additives (reactive hardeners, cross-linking agents, scavengers, resin substitutes, moisture resistance promoters, release agents, wetting agents, various additives for laminating syrups).
  • Novel Additives such as MDI hardeners, Vapour Catalyst for amino resins, accelerators for cold-setting phenolics & oil repellent additive for laminates

CHIMAR technology is protected via a portfolio of international patent families and via trade-secrets.

CHIMAR provides services both remotely and on-site to the producers of resins and wood panels worldwide through:

CHIMAR has long expertise in participating and implementing R&D projects in collaboration with established research and industrial organizations in the framework of European R&D funded projects.
