If you agree with the saying that ‘longevity is the key to success,’ then there’s no doubt that the STAUF brand of adhesives is an absolute triumph.

Before the invention of the typewriter, telephone, or airplane, there was STAUF. Originally founded in 1828, this family-owned business has been experimenting with chemicals and processes to create some of the most reliable adhesives, sealers, and tools in the flooring industry.

STAUF USA was established in Memphis, Tennessee in 2002, and Palo Duro is proud to distribute their products to wood flooring professionals in the Denver and the surrounding areas. STAUF has a whole arsenal of adhesives and products available for any project you can think of, but our customers have been particularly fond of SMP960 One-Step and PUM950 Power-Mastic.
