Adhesive bonding of WPC for outdoor applications
The aim of the research project “Adhering of highly filled wood fibre-reinforced polymers including outdoor applications” is to analyze various surface pretreatments for the successful bonding of WPC products, to develop adhesive parameters and to describe the influence of process parameters in the light of the lack of worldwide standardization.
Studies on the pretreatment of the WPC surface with methods such as roughening, corona treatment, plasma pre-treatment and fluorination are planned in the project. The use of these methods should significantly expand the applications of WPC products.
This research project has been completed.
A summary of the results as well as detailed research results are included in the report, which can be ordered here (FV 350).
