Fillers with different chemical properties were used to study their effects on poly(vinyl acetate) (PVAc) emulsion wood adhesives. The elastoplastic behaviour of the filler treated PVAc emulsions was studied using differential scanning calorimetry and dynamic mechanical thermal analysis. The results show that the glass transition temperature (Tg) of the polymer is not changed significantly by the addition of the fillers, while the tensile modulus is changed together with the hardness and stiffness. The viscosity of the emulsions and their performance on wood surfaces are greatly affected by fillers. Fillers with high oil-absorption capacity increase viscosity to a greater extent. The acidity of the fillers influences the setting time for bonding of the emulsions to wood, and the water resistance, since some chemical reactions can take place during curing.
