Adhesives of this kind have in recent years become increasingly important for aeronautical purposes. This has been a consequence of the gluing processes adopted in German aircraft manufacture about 10 years ago. Although the application of phenole formaldehyde (bakelite) adhesives for plywood manufacture had already been investigated during 1916–1918 in this country, and although these adhesives were highly recommended by the Adhesive Research Committee in its Report of 1922, every further research and any intended use of adhesives of this kind was discontinued shortly after the war. This is a good example of the slowness in adopting progressive methods in wooden construction.
