Wood and Adhesives Problems—A Look at the Future
Keywords:Adhesive evaluation, adhesive testing, pollution control, research and development, standards, applied research, economic analysis, properties
Problems of current concern to the producers and users of wood products involving the use of adhesives are discussed, with some of the economic factors identified. Similar problems that might be encountered in the next five to ten years are discussed, with an attempt to anticipate the impact on the forest products industry if successful solutions are realized.
Possible solutions to the problems identified are discussed, with particular emphasis on the type of investigations that should be undertaken at research establishments to provide the highest probability of success in solutions.
