Tannin-furfuryl alcohol wood panel adhesives without formaldehyde

Tannin-Furfurylalkohol-Klebstoffe für Holzwerkstoffe ohne Formaldehyd


Tannin-furfuryl alcohol resins reacting under alcaline conditions to minimize self condensation of furfuryl alcohol and force its reaction with tannins have proved to be another alternative for formaldehyde free, environment friendly adhesives from renewable materials.
