Abstract
The traditional disposable foam plastic tableware is made from polymer materials. It is not decomposable and could bring serious problem to environment after the tableware is disposed. In order to solve this problem, a new type of green tableware made fromnatural materials (such as tree leaves) is developed and investigated. To obtain a green tableware product with good performance, the keytechnology is the bonding of tree leaves. In this study, the tree leaves were bonded by a type of bio-based adhesive synthesized in our lab. The structure, curing characteristics, and physical/mechanical properties of the adhesive were measured and analyzed. The effects of adhesive application rate, press time, and press temperature on the bonding performance of tree leaves were also investigated. The results showed that the general properties of the bio-based adhesive could meet the requirements for the production of tree leave tableware. After immerged in the water of 63°C for 3 hours, some of the bonded leaves could still have good bonds. Considering the production efficiency, cost, decorative effect, and bond performance, the optimal pressing parameters were: adhesive application rate: 100 g/m2; hot press temperature 70°C; hot press time 120 s. After bonded by bio-based adhesive, the tree leaves could be used as suitableraw materials for the production of green tableware.
