Wettability changes in the formation of polymeric multilayers on cellulose fibres and their influence on wet adhesion

Lingstrom, Rikard; Notley, Shannon; Wagberg, Lars


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]
