Wood glues wood for arts and cutural objects (woodNANObonding)

The aim is to develop and establish an adhesive toolbox based ondifferent cellulose structures for bonding wooden objects in need of restoration. The aim is to enable simple aqueous adhesive formulations with MFC, MFLC, MFPC or NCC, whose viscosity and adhesive properties  suitable for application can be adjusted for each restoration object by the restorer himself. The toolbox will be available as a sample to interested parties and material and process will be transferred to companies after the project.
