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

Title variants
Languages of publication
In this work, the potentials of adhesives production from cassava starch were investigated. An adhesive product produced from Manihot utilissima was compared with a commercially available adhesive. Improvements in the properties of the cassava-based adhesive were achieved by investigating the effects of temperature and the addition of a 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 in the production of large scale adhesives.
