DescriptionRapid economic development and growth in China has resulted in a substantial increase in the demand for utilization of bio-based composites. This provides a unique opportunity for developing wood adhesives. This study reviews research development and major accomplishments in wood adhesives and technology in China over the last 50 years. It also discusses the characteristics of China’s wood adhesive supply and utilization. The results show that urea-formaldehyde adhesive is still the dominant wood adhesive with about 70% of total adhesive use. However, public health and environmental concerns require development of new, safe, and green adhesive systems. It is expected that future research and development of wood adhesives in China will not only focus on performance improvement and cost reduction but will also address public interest concerns such as efficient resource utilization, product sustainability, pollution control, green construction, and global climate change.
