Production of Adhesive from Cassava Starch in Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria

Title variants
Languages of publication
The potentials of adhesives production from cassava starch were investigated. Adhesive product from Manihot utilissima was compared with a commercially available adhesive. Improvements in properties of adhesive produced were achieved by investigating the effects of temperature and viscosity enhancer/stabilizer (borax) on the density of the produced adhesive. The results obtained provide a wide range of insight into the production potentials of using cassava starch as a raw material to the production of large scale adhesives
