H.B. Fuller

Professional adhesive expertise with proven reliability

H.B. Fuller was founded by Harvey Benjamin Fuller more than a century ago, who had a vision to formulate innovative, convenient and economical adhesives. Now, H.B. Fuller adhesive solutions have become an integral part of nearly every kind of finished goods one can find in the market place, including 30 years of supplying the RV sector.

During this time, H.B. Fuller has constantly innovated to face several challenges as RV manufacturers have demanded strong bonds for the production of walls, roofs and floor panels. There have also been many changes in materials, such as: natural wood, wooden materials, aluminium, EPS, XPS, GRP, etc. The H.B. Fuller Icema™ 145 adhesives range has been able to provide the correct bonding to keep up with the changing materials and production processes.

R 145 adhesives range includes a wide range of one-component, liquid PU, developed to meet different conditions in terms of reactivity and adhesion to any material used in the RV industry. It offers a very strong bond, allowing manufacturers to create a high quality and durable panel, proven by the brand’s continuous presence in the RV sector over such a long period of time.

To face the demand for lighter, cheaper materials and better quality finishing for panels, H.B. Fuller has launched a new grade of high performance
adhesive, the Icema™ 1456 with a low foaming behaviour, while keeping all the usual characteristics and functionalities of the Icema™ range in terms
of reliability, adaptability to different applications and processes, and excellent adhesion.

Foaming occurs with all one-component liquid PUs when curing because CO2 is generated during the process. This can create bubbles, which can lead to imperfections in the finishing. To combat the inevitable CO2 generation, the Icema™ 1456 controls the bubble making, allowing a better finish of the external surfaces.
