Abstract

The objective of this research was to investigate the miscibility behavior of melamineformaldehyde (MF) resin and poly(vinyl acetate) (PVAc) blends for their use as adhesives for bonding fancy veneer and plywood in engineered flooring, by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR). Blends of various compositions of MF resm/PVAc were prepared. To determine and compare the effect of PVAc content, blends with PVAc to MF resin weight ratios of 0, 30, 50, 70 and 100% were prepared. These blends displayed a single cure temperature over the entire range of compositions indicating that this blend system was miscible in the amorphous phase due to the formation of hydrogen bonding between the amine groups of the MF resin and the carbonyl groups of PVAc. .
