Developing a new structural adhesive from bioresources

Abstract : Adhesives offer huge market worldwide in various domains of many industries ranging from aeronautics to civil engineering. The presence of "volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or other toxic chemicals in many of these adhesives are matter of concern for health and environment. United States Environmental Protection Agency's pollution prevention program has a goal to decline or diminish the use of these materials and develop environment friendly biological adhesives [1]. Research on polysaccharides and proteins based bioadhesives is in emerging phase nowadays. The main focus of this study is to develop potential adhesives from bioresources. Various polysaccharides featuring either single or multiple formulations and containing plasticizers have been experimented on chemically treated aluminium adherends. For shear strength measurement "double lap joint" binding method is adopted as it offers lowest peeling. To find eventual shear strength, the maximum force of the specimen failure is measured and the relative adhesive thickness taken into account in the final result since it significantly influences the apparent strength of the adhesive. Experimental results obtained will be discussed during the presentation, with a special emphasis on the influence of plasticizers/polysaccharide combinations or concentrations on the shear strength of the bioadhesives that have been tested.
