X-ray micro-CT is used here to visualize the distribution of melamineureaformaldehyde adhesive in the wood composite, particleboard, and examine changes in adhesive distribution on wood particles (flakes) before and after pressing. CT and scanning electron microscopy of unpressed, wax-covered, wood flakes reveals that adhesive is evenly distributed on flakes, although it does not completely cover all surfaces. Adhesive on these wood flakes migrates during pressing forming more continuous...[Show more]
