Bonding Performance of
Adhesive Systems for Cross-Laminated Timber Treated with Micronized Copper Azole Type C
Snapshot: Expanding the use of cross-laminated timber (CLT) to outdoor applications is "one sticky problem." Research must examine compatibility between adhesive and wood preservative, evaluate bond strength and wood failure under applied forces, and test bond durability to withstand accelerated weathering without delamination.
