In order to study the effect of thermal treatment on the adhesion between wood and a nonpolar thermoplastic polymer, spruce wood boards (Picea abies Karst.) were heat-treated and bonded with polyethylene. As a result the contact angle of an applied water droplet increased significantly. A strong improvement of the adhesion between the modified wood surface and polyethylene was found by mechanical tests on unmodified and thermally modified samples.
