Title: Ageing of wood adhesives - loss in strength with time

Ref Code: IP8/84

Abstract1: Joints made with most common wood adhesives tend to lose strength as they age. This paper gives the results of long-term tests carried out at BRE which quantify these strength reductions over a period of 40 years for unstressed material and 27 years for stressed joints. Implications for glued structures are considered.
