Lignin-based wood adhesives prepared without formaldehyde substituted by non-volatile non-toxic aldehyde, namely glyoxal, were prepared and tested for application to wood panels such as particleboard. The adhesives yielded good IB strength results of the panels, enough to comfortably pass relevant international standard specifications for exterior-grade panels. The adhesives also showed sufficient reactivity to yield panels in press times comparable to those of formaldehyde-based commercial adhesives.

Formaldehydfreie Holzklebstoffe auf Ligninbasis


Holzklebstoffe auf Ligninbasis wurden auf ihre Eignung zur Herstellung von Holzplatten, wie zum Beispiel Spanplatten, untersucht. Dabei wurde anstelle von Formaldehyd das nicht flüchtige, ungiftige Aldehyd Glyoxal verwendet. Die Klebstoffe erzielten gute Ergebnisse hinsichtlich der Querzugfestigkeit der Platten. Internationale Normanforderungen für Platten zur Verwendung im Feuchtbereich wurden problemlos eingehalten. Die Reaktionsfähigkeit der Klebstoffe reichte aus, um Platten mit Presszeiten vergleichbar mit denjenigen kommerzieller Klebstoffe auf Formaldehydbasis herzustellen.
