The mechanical properties of cured wood-adhesive films were tested in dry and wet states by means of nanoindentation. A fluid cell was used to monitor possible property changes as a function of changing moisture content. Under wet conditions, the elastic modulus and hardness of all tested adhesives (i.e., urea formaldehyde, melamine urea formaldehyde, phenol resorcinol formaldehyde, and one-component polyurethane) were reduced to about half of their values in the dry state. After renewed drying, all adhesives largely recovered their initial mechanical properties. (C) 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Appl Polym Sci 118: 1331-1334, 2010
