    Knowledge about the glueability of fiber-based materials is limited. Factors affecting the adhesive joint between adhesive and paperboard are presented here through two cases: strength of hot melt adhesive joint and consolidation of dispersion adhesive. The hot melt joint was investigated by Y-peel testing, while shear testing was applied for dispersion adhesives. A set of supplementing tools was used to understand the adhesive joints, their development and failure. The results show, for example, the importance of paperboard roughness on the hot melt joint strength. Formation of an adhesive joint with dispersion adhesives is affected by the rheological properties of the adhesive layer and the structure and absorption properties of the board surface. Both case studies indicate that it can actually be better to apply the adhesive first on a rough surface and then press the smooth surface on the adhesive, which is in contrast with the common practice today.
