PUCO2 - DEVELOPMENT OF ADHESIVES AND PAINTS FOR THE FOOTWEAR AND FURNITURE SECTOR FROM CO2 FROM INDUSTRIAL FACILITIES OF THE VALENCIAN COMMUNITY
PUCO2 is a project in collaboration with the AIMPLAS, INESCOP and ADIMME technology centers, as well as a series of tractor companies in the Valencian Community that maintain an increasing interest in their CO2 emissions and their use. In this sense, the project's main objective is the conversion of captured CO2 from industrial emissions into chemical products with high added value.
The objectives of the project are:
Year 2020: The first results obtained in AIDIMME in the PUCO2 project are focusing, firstly, on adhesives from CO2. In order to adapt these adhesives to applications in the wood and furniture sector, the most suitable formulations are being developed and optimized to meet the necessary requirements for their correct use. For this, the different adhesive formulations are applied and characterized on different wood substrates. In the first study for the evaluation of the adhesives prepared in the project from CO2, a shear analysis is being carried out to be able to classify the adhesives by stress groups. In this way, all the adhesives are screened and the ones that give the best results can be selected to continue with the analysis and assess their possible applications within the furniture and wood sector. This first study is carried out following the instructions set out in the UNE EN 205 standard: “Adhesives. Non-structural wood adhesives. Determination of the resistance to shear by traction of overlapped joints ”. And in order to evaluate the usefulness and quality of these adhesives for wood and wood-derived products, the UNE EN 204 standard: “Classification of thermoplastic adhesives for wood for non-structural use”, allows their classification through compliance with values tensile strength as a function of the different aging processes of the glued joint. This European standard classifies non-structural wood thermoplastic resin-based adhesives according to durability classes, from D1 to D4, based on the dry and wet strength of the bonding lines under specified conditions and after several conditioning treatments. Another suitable use for this type of adhesive could be as glues to cover boards with decorative sheets, since, in general, they are soft adhesives and some of them do not meet the shear resistance requirements contemplated in standard UNE EN 204 interior use and it is possible that gluing on wood does not present adequate mechanical resistance values for the efforts required of the pieces such as wooden profiles for use. In order to confirm the adequacy of the adhesive to these manufacturing processes, the gluing of melamine-type edge sheets is also being carried out on chipboards and MDF-type boards, in order to confirm the use of adhesives for the coating of Wood based panels. The procedure for evaluating adhesives is based on that described in standard UNE 56875: 2014.
