Vacek, Jiří
This diploma thesis solves the problem of a suitable combination of used adhesive and the shape of a glued joint, to produce a battenboard usable in the production of kitchen products washable in dishwasher. The tested samples were made of beech and oak and their edges were machined into glued joints of the wedge calk, the blunt joint and the double wedge pen. For testing were used two polyvinyl acetate adhesives and one polyurethane adhesive with different types of moisture resistance. The resistance of the samples to bending stresses on the glued joint was tested before exposure to the washing process and after the completion of thirty washing cycles. The theoretical part includes a literary overview and methodology dealing with the given issue, the practical part describes the achieved results.
