Title: Melamine-formaldehyde resins modified with glycerol
Issue Date: 2015-07-15
Abstract: Melamine-formaldehyde resins represent an important class of aminoplastic resin and are made by thereaction of formaldehyde with mainly melamine.Melamine-formaldehyde resins are used as adhesives for plywood and particleboard for use in humidand exterior conditions and are also used for the impregnation of paper sheets in the production of selfadhesive overlays for the surface of wood-based panel products and of self-adhesive laminates [1].During the last decade the interest in using raw materials based on bio-renewable resources forsynthetic polymers and composite materials increased largely [2]. Recent developments in eco-efficientbio-based adhesives for wood bonding include the use of tannins, lignin, proteins, and carbohydratederived natural binders.The main goal of this work is the partial replacement of melamine in melamine-formaldehyde resins byglycerol, yielding a stable resin with potential for use in impregnated paper based laminates.
