Wood Adhesion Short Course

Wednesday, July 16, 2014 - Thursday, July 17, 2014 (All Day Event)

Why does glue stick? What makes wood unique when it comes to gluing it together? The adhesive bonding of wood is becoming increasingly important as large timber becomesmore and more scarce. Industries are adopting new technologies tobond wood pieces into larger elements such as flat panels, structural beams, finger-jointed lumber, furnitureparts, etc. Industry professionals need to learn more about wood material science and the science of wood adhesion to effectively troubleshoot wood bonding problems and adoptnew technologies.
