Abstract

Laboratory-prepared particles of nanocellulose were added to acrylic coating material in order to increase the strength of cotton canvas. The size of the cellulose nanoparticles was determined using a Zetasizer device. Changes in tensile strength, in relation to the added amount of nanocellulose, were observed under laboratory conditions. The cotton canvas coated with acrylic coating showed increased strength when the optimum amount of nanocellulose was added. This finding can be utilized eg. to prolong the life of bookbinding canvases (buckrams).
