Title: Protein Modifiers Generally Provide Limited Improvement in Wood Bond Strength of Soy Flour Adhesives

Author: Frihart, Charles R.; Lorenz, Linda;

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Soy flour adhesives using a polyamidoamine-epichlorohydrin (PAE) polymeric coreactant are used increasingly as wood adhesives for interior products. Although these adhesives give good performance, higher bond strength under wet conditions is desirable. Wet strength is important for accelerated tests involving the internal forces generated by the swelling of wood and plasticization of the adhesive with increasing humidity.

Keywords: Soy, protein carbohydrate, adhesive, wood
