DescriptionAn appreciation of rheology, material science, organic chemistry, polymer science, and mechanics leads to better understanding of the factors controlling the performance of the bonded assemblies. Given the complexity of wood as a substrate, it is hard to understand why some wood adhesives work better than other wood adhesives, especially when under the more severe durability tests. In general, wood is easy to bond to compared to most substrates, but it is harder to make a truly durable wood bond. A main trend in the wood industry is increased bonding of wood products as a result of the use of smaller diameter trees and more engineered wood products.
