Abstract

Urethane type adhesive mixtures containing poly(MDI) were used to prepare biodegradable urethane type composites containing wheat stalks. According to the mechanical properties, i.e., tensile strength, bending strength, and hardness of the composites, the ratio of wheat stalks to sticking mixtures, the technological pressure used, and the size of the wheat stalks were optimized. The mechanism of the possible chemical reaction is also discussed.
