Reed fibre boards based on biobased and biocompatible water-borne polymer resins

The project will evaluate the suitability of reed as raw material for production of high quality boards by comparing the reed qualities and pre-treatment options to enhance the interaction with selected resins, used to strongly bind the reed fibres together into a strong and rigid fibre board.

The evaluation and selection of suitable resination systems will be performed at lab scale, where the technical criteria for adhesion, curing and processing conditions will be simulated. The most promising resination systems for reed panels production will be further tested for the technical, economic and ecological performance.
