Various Kraft lignin binder formulations with phenolic resins were developed and tested in terms of application, curing requirements and product performance. The two most promising glues were selected and this report presents their evaluation as binder for laminated lumber. For the first time, a rapid method of curing lignin adhesives in laminated lumber was developed using the residual heat from pre-heated wood. The study has confirmed that rapid lamination of lumber using low cost lignin binder is possible. Further study for rapid methods of pre-heating the laminae and application of the binder is required. The development of a faster curing low cost binder would be the best improvement to the process.
