Wettability changes in the formation of polymeric multilayers on cellulose fibres and their influence on wet adhesion
Individual wood fibres were partly treated with polyelectrolyte multilayers (PEMs) consisting of two different polymer combinations, poly allylamine (PAH)/poly acrylic acid (PAA) and polyethylene oxide (PEO)/PAA in order to study the influence of these polymers on fibre wettability. Single fibres were partly treated and analysed using a so-called dynamic contact analyser (DCA) where the fibres are wet under controlled conditions. When PAH/PAA was used, a stronger influence on fibre wettability...[Show more]
