In this study, it is aimed to describe the effects of adhesives (PVAc, Desmodur-VTKA and phenol formaldehyde) on Uludag fir (Abies Bornmullerina M.) and Oriental beech (Fagus Orientalis Lipsky) cut tangentially and exposed to heating tests (40, 60, and 80 C) and heating duration (30, 60 and 90 days) and controls. Consequently, when compared to control samples, the highest decrease of 26.2% in average with Oriental beech and 18.5% in average with Uludag fir was obtained with the samples bonded with D-VTKA adhesive kept for 90 days. At high temperatures phenol formaldehyde adhesives can be advised as the building material used for long terms. (C) 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
