Wood adhesives are and have been of prime importance in the industrial world. As our forests become younger and the drive for sustainable resources increases, many wood products rely heavily on adhesives or binders to perform their best. An understanding of the unique attributes of wood as a surface and how adhesive chemistries utilize these properties will greatly aid in developing, troubleshooting or testing bonded wood structures in wood construction and flooring applications.

This webinar will cover wood adhesion, composites and their down-stream applications requiring formulated adhesives with emphasis on isocyanate and polyurethane chemistries. Considerations for designing and formulating construction and flooring adhesives will be provided.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the unique nature of wood as a substrate
  2. The types of adhesives used to make wood composites
  3. The types of adhesives used in down-stream applications of these composites
  4. Fundamental mechanisms of adhesion
  5. Formulation considerations for designing construction and flooring adhesives
