A novel fiber-veneer laminated composite based on tannin resin


Zhou, Xiaojian and Segovia, Cesar and Abdullah, Ummi Hani and Pizzi, Antonio and Du, Guanben (2015) A novel fiber-veneer laminated composite based on tannin resin. Journal of Adhesion. pp. 1-9. ISSN 0021-8464; ESSN: 1545-5823


Natural non-woven fiber was impregnated with a tannin resin and laminated with wood veneer for preparation of laminated composites. The tannin resin used showed a good compatibility with the natural fiber, and easy to assemble with the wood veneers. The tannin resin penetration into the wood veneer was observed by light microscopy. The laminated composite shows very good mechanical properties and water resistance. Shear force-displacement testing demonstrates that the laminated composite had a ductile behaviour under wet testing conditions. The laminated composite was prepared using 100% natural bio-renewable raw materials and had good properties compared to conventional plywood bonded with synthetic resin.
