(2017): Adhesive distribution related to mechanical performance of high density wood fibre board
INT J ADHES ADHES. 2017; 78: 23-27. FullText FullText_BOKU

In a full-scale mill experiment two groups of high density wood fibre boards were produced. While one group was bonded with a standard melamine reinforced urea-formaldehyde adhesive, a second group was bonded with a modified adhesive yielding systematically improved board properties at identical amounts of adhesive applied. By means of a novel fluorescence-microscopic method using the dye Acriflavine to colour the cured adhesive after board production, adhesive distribution within the industrial produced boards was evaluated and quantified. Very clear differences in the size distribution of the two adhesives were found, leading to the conclusion that a relationship exists between adhesive distribution and mechanical board performance.
