The SCOPE of the INVENTION

The description refers to adhesives, reactive systems and methods for use in the manufacture of lignocellulosic composites.

BACKGROUND of INVENTION

Production being formed by extrusion of composites from a mixture of wood shavings (sawdust) or fibers and polyisocyanate binders well known. Isocyanate binders are an excellent bonding agents for shavings (sawdust) or fibers, but they require the use of high temperatures during compaction during production of composite panels (plates) of these lignocellulosic powder substrates.

Often the desired temperature pressing over 400°F, often as high as 430°F or even higher, in order to achieve effective curing of the binder in a reasonable period of time. There is a compromise value between the temperature of the pressing time and in the press. Lower temperature extrusion usually result in a longer residence time in the press. Longer time spent in the press undesirable for the industry because they reduce the productivity in the production process. High temperature pressing require more energy and are often the reason for the selection of undesirable quantities of VOCS (VOC; volatile organic connection of the clusters) from the substrate during pressing. In addition, high temperatures often cause thermal damage to the composite panels (plates) and, in some cases, even the fire in the press. The need for a high degree of heat has a tendency to bring the moisture content in the final product (panel Board) to undesirable low levels.

Types of polyisocyanate binders used in practice in the industry, are almost without exception isocyanates series DHS, usually polymeric MDI (which belong to different mixtures of diphenylmethanediisocyanate and heavier polymethylenepolyphenylisocyanate the oligomers). These polyisocyanate binders, most are strong binders phenol-formaldehyde (FF; PF) type in relation to the quality of the panels (plates). Lignocellulosic composites produced using binders DHS, are typically more resistant to moisture damage than similar panels (plates)manufactured using FF resin. An additional advantage of MDI binders, which made them highly attractive for the production of SURFACE (OSB; plate with oriented fiber), is a large permissible moisture content of the substrate. MDI binder, as opposed to FF resins, can often be used with a wood substrates, kotoryi.kot higher moisture content. FF resins require a very high temperature pressing at practically acceptable for the industry terms of presence in the media. Widely used form DHS Poliziano works best with wood substrates (chips, sawdust and/or fibers, often referred to in industry as "fillers"), which were pre-dried to a moisture content in the range of from about 2 to 6% by weight. This humidity still requires some pre-drying filler, though usually not as large as for FF binders. By pre-drying uses large amounts of energy and requires an additional step in the manufacturing process. It also requires additional equipment and creates a new kind of danger - fire kiln. It would be highly desirable for the practice in the industry to completely eliminate preliminary drying or, at least, to obtain a further reduction in the volume of pre-drying.

Therefore, in the industry of wood composites there is a strong demand, especially in the production of pressed powder wood composites, such as the production of panels with oriented fibers (DOV), in binding substances, which can be used at higher moisture content of the fillers, and which will be structured when Bo is its low temperature extrusion without reducing the productivity of the press. It would be desirable to apply temperature pressing of less than 400°F, preferably, 350°F or below, without increasing term presence in the press. It would also be desirable to use a filler with a moisture content of more than 6% by weight. The binder that can successfully meet all of these needs, has the potential to significantly reduce the cost of the product by reducing energy consumption. Additional benefits include improved product quality, reduced emissions, and improved security for plants.

Also presented method for the production of lignocellulosic composites. When this method is used the system described above. This method includes the following stages:

a) obtaining a lignocellulosic substrate.

Lignocellulosic substrate preferably contains a lot of lignocellulosic particles bonded material. More preferably, when the lignocellulosic substrate consists essentially of a mass of lignocellulosic particles.

For an arbitrary embodiments of the method of lignocellulosic particles, such as wood chips, can be combined with other powdered materials for inclusion in the final generated by pressing the composite. Non-limiting examples of other powdered materials that can be used with arbitrary embodiment, include chipboard waste from lechenie non-metallic automotive waste, such as waste foam and fabric waste (sometimes referred to collectively as "light pruning"), powder waste plastics, inorganic or organic fibrous substance, a combination of these materials and similar materials.

Usually the preferred types of lignocellulosic materials include wood particles and fibers, but you can use other types of lignocellulosic materials or separately, or in combination with material based on wood. Non-limiting examples of alternative lignocellulosic materials suitable for use with this method include agricultural residues such as straw, husks sugarcane, cotton waste, jute and similar materials; waste paper products and paper pulp; combinations of these materials, and the like;

b) obtaining multi-component adhesive compositions containing at least a polyfunctional isocyanate, a hydrophilic polyol and a catalyst.

Multicomponent binding composition, as a minimum, includes two vzaimorezerviruemym thread but can optionally include more than two threads. The preferred composition of the essential ingredients of a multicomponent adhesive compositions (polyfunctional isocyanate, a hydrophilic polyol and catalyst), and the absolute and relative amounts of these ingredients in the reaction system are presented above. In highly preferred embodiments of the multicomponent system of the bonding material is composed of exactly two vzaimorezerviruemym flows of chemical compounds (components). Preferably both of the flow represented by the fluids in the terms of use, although the scope of the present invention includes the use of one or more of the solid components. In a particularly preferred embodiment of one of the components (referred to here as the first component) contains a polyfunctional isocyanate with a catalyst(AMI) of the ORGANOMETALLIC compounds of transition metals, dissolved(s) in it. The catalyst(s) of the ORGANOMETALLIC transition metal compounds are preferably soluble in the isocyanate and used in completely dissolved form. The opposite (second) component while the preferred embodiment contains a hydrophilic polyol and any arbitrary additive;

(C) applying the split and vzaimorezerviruemym components mnogokomponentnoi the adhesive composition for lignocellulosic substrate, preferably in a separate thread without any prior mixing of the components in quantities suitable for the production of product from the associated lignocellulosic composite.

In preferred embodiments of this method vzaimodeistvie components of multi-component adhesive composition applied to the substrate (powder mass) separately from each other. This is preferably done by using separate channels, nozzles or disks for distribution. While the preferred embodiment of the interacting flows of multi-component adhesive composition is not in contact with each other in any degree as long as they will not appear on the surface of the substrate. Although this is usually less preferably, in the broader sense of the scope of the present invention, the interacting components of the adhesive composition is pre-mixed, fully or partially, before application to the substrate. However, when implementing this method with preliminary mixing, it is desirable that the interacting flows of multicomponent adhesive compositions remain separated until immediately when the adhesive mixture is applied on the substrate. Preferably, any mixing of interacting flows must occur within two (2) minutes of applying svyazivayuschego the substance on the substrate, more preferably, within one (1) minute, and more preferably within 30 seconds or less from the application of the binder on the substrate. It is desirable to minimize or prevent reaction between the cooperating threads until, when there is physical contact of the binder with the substrate. When implementing a variant of the method pre-mix vzaimodeistvie streams can be combined with an apparatus for mixing at the point of use, such as a static mixer or mixing by collision. Regardless of whether the mix flows or pre-applied to the substrate separately, in the apparatus for distribution should preferably be provided with tools such as dosing pumps for regulation of the relative amounts of the threads, and the absolute amount of adhesive composition applied to the substrate. Distributing the device should provide a wide and uniform coverage of the substrate by a binder or vzaimorezerviruemym chemical components. Suitable devices such as razbryzgivayuschie head or rotating disks commonly used in the industry of wood composites. If you prefer, you can use other types of devices for distribution. Whichever type of apparatus is La distribution, use, it is preferable that it should provide some degree of atomization flow of chemicals during their application to the substrate.

In preferred embodiments of this method comminuted lignocellulosic substrate, such as a mass of wood shavings (sawdust), loaded into an apparatus for mixing during or immediately after application of multi-component adhesive compositions. In accordance with the latest technology you can use a rotating mixer. Turning helps to ensure uniform distribution of the binder over the entire surface of lignocellulosic particles. Deposition of multicomponent binder while turning milled lignocellulosic substrate is particularly preferable.

Whatever the method of application use, should not be a significant interaction between vzaimorezerviruemym chemical components of multicomponent flows binders before they will be located on the surface of the lignocellulosic substrate. Under the "no significant interaction" is meant that less than 10 mol. %, preferably less than 5 mol. %, more preferably less than 1 mol. %, more preferably less than 0.5 mol. % and most preferably less than 0.1 mol. % of free isocyanate (-NCO) groups, p is outstay in the original composition of multi-component adhesive composition is consumed by the reaction between interacting components of threads before as these flows come into contact with the lignocellulosic substrate;

d) shaping and molding processed a binder lignocellulosic substrate suitable for curing binder conditions and production of products associated lignocellulosic composite.

Processed a binder lignocellulosic substrate, usually crushed the substrate, it is desirable to pour on the template or similar device, which approximates the shape of the final product from lignocellulose. This stage of the process is called forming. During the stage of forming lignocellulosic particles are loosely Packed and prepared to hot pressing. Usually use limiting device, such as a form to prevent ejection of powder fill in the sides. Specialists in this field will understand how to mould processed adhesive composition of the powdered substrate to achieve the desired thickness of the final product extrusion of the composite form. During production of plates pressed in the form (pressed), such as DOV, the operation of molding usually occurs immediately after the application of the binder on the substrate. The final hot pressing of the formed substrate usually occurs within hours of the operation of molding. Gellately is about, to hot pressing would occur as soon as possible after the application of binder to the substrate, although in practice in the production usually is delayed. Preferably, hot pressing occurred within 2 hours of application of the binder, more preferably within 1 hour, more preferably within 30 minutes, and more preferably within 20 minutes. The longer the binder remains in contact with the lignocellulosic substrate and exposed to weathering before pressing, the greater the degree of pre-interaction isocyanate which may occur. The preliminary dimensions of interaction (predetermine) are a function of time, the ambient temperature and humidity environment. Each of these factors, as they may increase in rates tends to increase predetermine. Increased predetermine isocyanate may prevent the development of optimal bonding with an adhesive in the final composite and may result in a composite with poor mechanical properties. Another embodiment is the preparation of wood composites with a separate surface and Central layers. Board with oriented fiber, for example, is constructed using on the ear surface layers and one inner layer, where orientation along the length of the surface and interior flakes changed by 90°. This gives the necessary mechanical properties and dimensional spatial stability of the final composite. Surface and inner layers can be processed or binders based on isocyanates or binders of type FF (phenol formaldehyde resin). While the preferred embodiment uses binder type MDI in both surface and in the inner layer. When treated with a bonding substance, the substrate is formed on a suitable surface, usually mesh or metal plate, known as the leaf cushion formed by the substrate moving in a press and pressing given shape at a temperature of the press and within the time period (time presence in the press), sufficient to ensure that the final curing of the binder. The pressure applied in the press sufficient to achieve the desired thickness and shape of the final composite. Pressing can be conducted at a series of different pressure levels (stages). The maximum pressure is usually between 200 lb/in2and 800 lb/in2but more preferably, from 300 lb/in2up to 700 lb/in2. The total period of stay in the press for a typical manufacturing process DOV, preferably,is between 6 seconds on the panel millimeter thickness and 18 seconds on the panel millimeter thickness, but more preferably, between 8 seconds on the panel mm thickness and 12 seconds on the panel millimeter thickness. Pressing is usually performed using metal plates to apply pressure over the surface of metal plates, called plates pillows. Plate pillows are surfaces which can be in direct contact with the chips treated with a binder (preform for plates) during pressing. Plate pillows usually are plates made of carbon steel, but sometimes use a plate made of stainless steel. The metal surface of the wafer pillows that are in contact with treated a binder lignocellulosic substrate, preferably coated with at least one outer tool for liberation from form to ensure the extraction of the product without damage. External processing to extract from a form suitable for the surfaces of the press used in the production of moldable pressing lignocellulosic product produced from crushed substrates and binders based on isocyanates are well known and their use will be clear to experts in this field. The use of external tools demolding less important when using three who lainy approach (FF top, the binder based on the isocyanate inside), but still desirable. Non-limiting examples of suitable external means for demolding include salts of fatty acids, such as ciliolate soap or other coatings with low surface energy, aerosol medications or layers.

An important advantage of the data of the reaction system and method, as noted earlier, is that the temperature of the pressing can be reduced without increasing term presence in the press. The preferred temperature in the press with this method are in the range from 300°F to 400°F, more preferably from 325°F to 375°F. Especially unexpected feature is that the same advantage of reduced temperature compaction can be achieved, even when using a slower curing binders from FF resins used on the surface. This is surprising because FF binder used for. surface layers, usually require higher temperatures pressing, when using the previous methodology (i.e. with the direct use of MDI in the inner core instead of the multi-component adhesive composition based on isocyanate in accordance with the description);

e) removing the lignocellulosic product.

Utverjdenie pressing the formed product from lignocellulose the aqueous composite is then removed from the press, and any other devices, such as forming the grid and plate separate pillows. Rough edges are usually treated. Sugarexchange products are sometimes subjected to conditioning within the prescribed time under certain ambient temperature and relative humidity to bring the moisture content in the wood to the desired level. This stage of conditioning is optional. In preferred embodiments of this process are formed by molding the product are usually flat plates, such as plates with oriented fibers (PHS). However, the production being formed by pressing lignocellulosic products with a more complex three-dimensional forms is included in the scope of this invention.

In a highly preferred example of embodiment of this method, the catalyst is first mixed with the polyfunctional isocyanate and applied to the substrate in the form of a single jet stream. The hydrophilic polyol is applied to the substrate in the form of the second jet stream. In preferred examples of the process of multi-component adhesive composition is applied to the lignocellulosic substrate in the form of exactly two threads interacting chemical compounds. Streams, most preferably applied to the substrate at the same time, although in a broader sense can apply the ü interactive streams separately in any desired order.

Unexpected and unexpectedly found that these reaction systems and methods facilitate the production of moldable lignocellulosic composites, especially composites formed from the mass of comminuted lignocellulosic material, at lower temperatures the press without increasing the time of presence in the media. In addition, totally unexpected, found that these reaction system and method facilitate the production of lignocellulosic composites of the mass with a relatively high moisture content. You can use the mass having a moisture content greater than 6% by weight, and the pressing can be performed at temperatures press 350°F or slightly below. The moisture content of the mass can be as high as 15% by weight, but preferably ranged between 8% and 14% by weight, more preferably between 9% and 13% by weight of the mass as a whole. This large flexibility in relation to moisture content reduces the need for pre-drying the mass. Preliminary drying can sometimes be completely excluded.

When in the surface layer use FF binder mass, which is used for the surface (FF related) layers may still require drying to reduce moisture levels that are compatible with the use FF binder. However, the main part of the mass, which the traveler goes into the inner layer and is associated with multi-component adhesive system may contain higher levels of moisture (noted above). Well-informed in this field of technology experts will determine the spacing of the levels of humidity mass that is most appropriate for use FF resins as bonding agents.

The reaction systems and methods described herein are particularly suitable for the production of plates with oriented fiber (DOV). However, the reaction systems and methods can be used in manufacturing and other types of moldable pressing lignocellulosic composites. These other types of composites include, but are not limited to, fibre boards (MDF) medium density (MDF; MDF), chipboard (particleboard), plates using a straw, plates using rice bran, plywood, laminated veneer lumber (LVL) and the like.

The procedure of manufacturing wood-shaving plify.

Wood fibers were produced in the Advanced Engineered Wood Composite Center (AEWC), located at the University of Maine at Bangor. Raw timber was felled, shipped and delivered in November 2006, the Raw wood was pulled through the ring of scrutiny the machine Carmanah 12/48, mode at 638 rpm Used two disposable knife that has one angle of 33° and (away) controI with an angle of 70°. The issue of knife established by 0.025" and was measured using a sensor with a circular scale to ensure tolerance not more than +/- 0.002 inch. The chips are then dried to the desired moisture content in a conveyor dryer chip Koch Bros, with forced air at a temperature of about 200°F.

Weighted number of chips corresponding or both surfaces or one core was placed in a spiral rotating blender for connecting substance to the spray disk (Coil spinning disk atomising binder blender). The blender has a 6' diameter, 3' deep and has a rotation of 15 rpm Rotating disk EL-4 was rotated with a speed of about 12,000 rpm

Binder, and where necessary, the polyol was added to the mixer on the basis of weight loss using a Masterflex peristaltic pump using pipe #24 Tygon. Emulsion wax was applied using spray air spray gun, model ¼ JBC SS with the tip of the SU-22 when installing the air pressure to about 20 lbs/inch2. Binder and the wax was injected at a speed of 110 ml/min, whereas the polyol added at the rate of 30 ml/min. Speed for polyol was lower, in order to ensure uniform coating otnositel the small amount of polyol.

Molding was performed using the methods of hand molding. The template 18, steel sheet cushion 4'×8' with thermosetting coating means for demolding STONER E497 was placed on top of the floating bearings table for molding. Then on top of pillows stacked wooden molding box 6"×32"×48". Then formed a three-layer randomly oriented Mat. The mould was then carefully removed and the excess chips on the edges was placed back on the Mat. Around the Mat was placed a sheet of VOC (see next section) and was placed on top of the alignment sheet. This unit is then moved into the press.

System for collecting VOCS (VOC)used to collect discharge from the press consisted of a rigid plate in the frame and install vapour recovery LOS.

Aluminum plate was thick 3/4" sizes VD 41"×89" and sizes ND 46"x 94". The plate had a groove 1/4"×1/4", rounded corners, designed at the top and bottom surfaces, giving the opportunity to place a 6 mm round, sealed cells of the spongy silicone harness. Harness appeared above the surface of the plate, providing a sealing flush during stages of decompression at the end of the pressing cycle.

For a system inlet for air in a closed cushion used intake manifold for the outer is on air coming from the side of the head from front center rear of the frame. Rear connection was made through the pipe, sending the air from the intake manifold through the inlet 5 air holes drilled through the pillow. This gave the opportunity oscillating movements of air through the plate, because the vacuum thrust was created at the front. Stream LOS vapor was pumped through the system output for air, consisting of four holes 1/4"drilled front airbags. These openings are connected with the use of Teflon and copper piping, all leading to one main copper outlet pipe line. This only goes pipeline gave a quick and easy connection of Teflon tubing to the vapor collection system (described below), when a block with a Mat was placed in the press.

Pressing

The Mat 32"x 48" extruded in 4'×8' 1800-ton hydraulic press for hot pressing Erie Mill and Press. The plate was heated to a specified temperature to 350°F (177°C) using two hot oil heaters Mokon, each with two zones. Each plate has 4 built-in fiber optic thermocouple, which recorded the temperature of the tours plates. Programmable logic controller (PLC) controlled the assembled position press the temperature of the plates through second intervals and gave them to the Excel file. Press resulted in positional adjustment to the planned thickness in 0,719". The press was installed at the beginning of its cycle at the beginning of contact of the Mat with both plates (~5,5"). The first stage took 45 seconds to obtain the specified thickness. This position was sustained in the course of from 135 to 240 seconds, depending on processing. Then applied the three-stage decompression, and each lasted 15 seconds.

When the panels were removed from the press, they were marked and then cut into pieces 32"x 80" split table. Then the panels were evaluated for weight, thickness, volume and density. The panel was then subjected to hot-packing.

After pressing, the panels of the panel was kondicionirovanie at 21°C and 41% relative humidity until the final equilibrium moisture content of about 7%. Samples for the determination of physical and mechanical properties were cut from the test panels using pre-defined cut out the pattern.

Volatile organic compounds (VOCS) were analyzed by several analytical methods. LOS or collected in the trap with water or methylene chloride in the unit for collection of VOCS. Used three analytical method for identification and kolichestvennoi evaluation of chemical compounds, present in secretions LOS. Gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) was used for the determination of phenol and benzene present in the methylene chloride. Gas chromatography/flame ionization detector was used for identification and quantification of the amount of methanol present in LOS. Spectrophotometer for ultraviolet radiation (UV) is used to determine the amount of formaldehyde present in aqueous solutions.

As can be seen in Table 2, Example 3 shows the improvement of physical and mechanical properties and reduced discharge during pressing in comparison with the liquid phenol-formaldehyde (FF) a binder in Example 2. Cu is IU, Example 3 demonstrates comparable physical and mechanical properties relative to 100% associated MDI panel described in Example 1. In addition, these comparable physical and mechanical properties obtained with a significant decrease in the temperature of extrusion and at high moisture content of the chips. Because of this lower temperature pressing, formaldehyde emissions, and energy for heating the press significantly reduced in Example 3 (comparison Example 1), and Example 3 shows that it is possible to associate lignocellulosic composites at unusually high moisture content of the chips, which allows to save energy and reduce the allocation of drying in the dryer.

The following examples (Examples 4 and 5) show the advantage of adding a polyol separately from connecting MDI substances. DHS prepolymer made by adding 15 parts by weight of polyol And 85 parts by weight binder, From A. These components are then placed in an oven heated to 60°C. for 12 hours.
