A one-component, non-crosslinked, and ambient temperature-cured core/shell (CS) structured waterborne poly(styrene-acrylate) (PStA) latex adhesive was prepared by two-stage seeded emulsion polymerization. The first-stage polymers were non-polar styrene-based copolymers with Tgs ranging from 86°C to 41°C and the second-stage polymer was polar acrylate-based copolymer having a Tg of 8°C. The effect of latex particle morphology and film microstructure on the CS structured PStA latex adhesive was examined by evaluating film thermal properties and mechanical performance. The results have shown that incorporation of soft shell polymers into hard core polymers can improve adhesive properties without compromising film-forming ability. Wood adhesive performances of latex adhesive were measured by shear strength and boiling water resistance of glued wood blocks. The utilization performances of the one-component CS structured PStA latex adhesive were found to largely depend on CS morphological character and the interfacial compatibility between various polymeric constituents, demonstrating that fabrication of CS latex particles provides a promising approach to realize high-performance latex adhesives.
