Abstract
There is a need to find an additive or treatment process that would improve the tack properties of a polymeric isocyanate binder/wood composite system before final pressing.
Overview
There is a need to find an additive or treatment process that would improve the tack properties of a polymeric isocyanate binder/wood composite system before final pressing.

This is a theoretical challenge which requires a written proposal only. The Solver will propose a material/method that meets the requirements and justify it with arguments and relevant references. The proposal will be evaluated on a theoretical basis considering current state of the art knowledge.
What is InnoCentive?
InnoCentive is the global innovation marketplace where creative minds solve some of the world's most important problems for cash awards up to $1 million. Commercial, governmental and humanitarian organizations engage with InnoCentive to solve problems that can impact humankind in areas ranging from the environment to medical advancements.

What is a Theoretical IP Transfer Challenge?

An InnoCentive Theoretical Challenge builds upon an idea but is not yet a proof of concept. A solution to a Theoretical Challenge will solidify the Solver's concept with detailed descriptions, specifications and requirements necessary to bringing a good idea closer to becoming an actual product or service.

This Challenge is a Theoretical-IP Transfer Challenge, meaning that Solvers must relinquish all rights to the Intellectual Property (IP) for which they are awarded. By contrast, Theoretical-Licensing means that the Seeker is requesting non-exclusive rights to use the winning solution. For these forms of a Theoretical Challenge, Solvers that do not win retain the rights to their solution after the evaluation period is complete. The Seeker retains no rights to any IP not awarded.
