FORTIS AD5205-S is a single component, moisture curing structurally certified polyurethane timber adhesive with 20 minute open time. It is used for fast processing glue laminated timber.
FORTIS AD5205-S Structural Wood Adhesive is a, one-component, water-resistant, wood adhesive for structural lamination. FORTIS AD5205-S Structural Wood Adhesive is suitable for large structural glue lamination that requires longer time to lay up prior to clamping, for example: structural beams, lintels
Suitable for high density timbers / Most hardwoods Waterproof adhesive according to NEN-EN 204 D4 EN302 /AS/NZS 4364:2010 Specially developed for heavily loaded construction joints Expands as it dries Superior adhesion at low dosage Excellent heat resistance

FORTIS AD5205-S is suitable for all kinds of glue lamination, most commonly structural timber. FORTIS AD5205-S is suitable for gluing a wide range of woods. Examples include hard, soft and exotic wood types. It is suitable to many Australian and Indonesian hardwoods with high densities Both sides of the surface must be dry and free of dust and grease. Assembly time tolerances will be mill and substrate specific. However, a good rule of thumb for minimum assembly time tolerances with the recommended water misting is 10 minutes total assembly time. In cold climates it is recommended the Adhesive is kept warm 20-30C. (Fortis can assist for simple setup of heat rooms) FORTIS AD5205-S generally requires lower dosages than traditional resins used for engineered wood products.
Excellent wood-to-wood contact is necessary to achieve optimum bond strength. A good mechanical fit for finger-jointing is necessary and internal or bonding pressures for laminating must be at least 1400kPa for optimum performance. Extensive laboratory experiments have shown that to achieve optimum performance with the FORTIS AD5205-S a water mist can be applied to the wood.
