Adhesive bonding is the key to advanced wood composites and structures. Within the present project, new and more efficient, energy-saving low-temperature approaches to the adhesive bonding of solid wood shall be developed. In detail, the chemical stability of adhesives in low-temperature environments will be characterised and the changes in curing characteristics will be monitored. The resulting adhesive films will be compared i terms of structure and mechanical properties with systems cured at standard temperature. Finally, the penetration behaviour of adhesives at low temperature will be investigated. The overall aim is to evaluate the competitiveness of low-temperature adhesive bonds with standard bonds in parallel with a thorough understanding of underlying mechanisms.
