Quantification of fibre resin coverage is essential for the understanding of panel integrity in medium density fibreboard (MDF) and similar panel products. X-ray photo-electron spectroscopy (XPS) was used to determine the proportion of fibre surface covered by nitrogen containing UF resin in blowline resinated and dry-blended MDF. Coverage values were dependent on processing variables such as resin content, wax content, resin spray droplet size and for blowline resination, the position of the… CONTINUE READING
