Description: Understanding what makes a good wood adhesive is difficult since the type of adhesive, wood species, bonding process, and resultant products vary considerably. Wood bonds are subjected to a variety of tests that reflect the different product performance criteria in diverse countries. The most common tests involve some type of moisture resistance; both wood and adhesive factors influence this moisture related failure. Models have been developed to explain the adhesive performance. The proper microscopic and spectroscopic techniques can lead to a better understanding of the failure mechanism so that improved adhesives can be designed and bonding processes can be optimized.
