Polyglycerol- and Sucrosebased Green Polyurethane Adhesives for Veneering


Veneering of particleboard with ABS foil and natural oak veneer was performed using polyglycerol- and sucrose-based polyurethane adhesives. Bonding strength between veneer and underlying board was determined according to EN 312 standard. Developed adhesive formulations exhibited bonding strengths between coating material and underlying board exceeding the surface soundness of particleboard (cohesive failure between 50 % and 100 %). Higher adhesion was found for natural oak veneers. Reactivity of the studied adhesives was comparable to those for commercial adhesives used in furniture industry. It has been demonstrated that biobased polyols can be considered environmentally benign and efficient components of polyurethane adhesives for furniture industry.
