Adhesive bonding is the key to advanced wood constructions. A thorough understanding of binding is needed to develop innovative engineered timber products. The mini-symposium reviews the current state of the art on fundamentals of adhesion between wood and (pre‑)polymers and therefore spans a bridge towards topics of direct relevance for current applications, e.g. bonding of different wood species, in particular hardwoods; progress in the understanding of the peculiarities of one- and two-component polyurethane adhesives; advanced formaldehyde based resins, bio-based adhesives; the evaluation of binder emissions; or long-term performance of adhesive systems under mechanical and environmental stress.
