(2014): Effect of plasma treatment on cell-wall adhesion of urea-formaldehyde resin revealed by nanoindentation
HOLZFORSCHUNG. 2014; 68(6): 707-712. FullText FullText_BOKU

Spruce wood surfaces were treated with plasma with the aim of increacing either hydrophilicity or hydrophobicity. The treatments resulted in significant changes in wettability compared to aged and reference samples. Wettability was found to be a very good indicator of macroscopic bond strength. Nanoindentation adhesion measurements identified significant changes in adhesion at the immediate wood surface as a primary source of changes of bond performance, whereas mechanical performance of bulk wood cells was not affected.
