WG1, WG2

Research interest

Adhesive polymers and their additives produced from renewable resources and dedidated for application in bonding composite wood panels

Specialized technique available in my lab

Lab equipment for the synthesis and analysis of thermosetting formaldehyde-based adhesive resins, pilot scale installation for resin making, pilot scale installation for the application of resins in wood panel production

Additional comment

The Chimar Hellas research team has investigated the preparation of adhesive resins using as components natural products, natural derivatives, by-products of processing natural materials, products from the treatment of forest biomass or agricultural residues (partial or total replacement of the resin petrochemical raw materials).
