Phenol-urea-formaldehyde-tannin (PUFT) adhesives have been prepared by copolymerization at room temperature of pine bark tannins with phenol-urea-formaldehyde (PUF) prepolymers prepared under varying operating conditions. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) have been used to analyse the curing of prepolymers and adhesives. DSC curves were obtained at three different heating rates and, by means of the Model Free Kinetics isoconversional method, chemical conversion vs. time at a given temperature was obtained. Mechanical conversion was calculated from DMA storage modulus data for those adhesives which gave the best results for plywood and MDF boards.

Urea-formaldehyde (UF) resins are the most used polycondensation resins today, in manufacturing particleboards. UF resins possess some advantages such as fast curing, good performance in the panel, water solubility and low price. However, the main chemical bonds of the UF resins macromolecules are hydrolysis sensitive. This causes low water and mositure resistance performance and subsequent formaldehyde release from the UF-bonded panels. A multitude of pathways have been explored for the improvement of UF resins’ behavior relating either to their synthesis procedure or application parameters during panel manufacture. In this study, two UF resins (a conventional and an innovative one produced at very low pH and temperature conditions) were analyzed for their specifications and characterized with TG-DTA technique in dynamic heating conditions and FTIR measurements both in their pre-polymer and cured state.
