    Description

    Use of proteins to bond wood dominated industrial production until the middle of the 20th century (1). The ensuing creation of the plywood and glulam beam industries allowed for more efficient use of wood resources than is possible with solid wood products. Many protein sources have been used as adhesives, including plant (soybean) and animal (blood, fish scales, collagen, casein from milk). Development of the petroleum industry led to replacement of these biobased materials by synthetic adhesives providing better water resistance, ease of use, and lower cost.
