Micro- and nanocomposites were prepared using Aquazol® 500 as a polymeric matrix and a microcrystalline cellulose (MCC), and suspensions of cellulose nanocrystals (CNC), as reinforcing agents. After a preliminary thermo-mechanical characterization that highlighted a stabilizing effect due to the micro- and nanofiller introduction, with an increase of the elastic modulus and a decrease of the thermal expansion coefficient and the creep compliance , these materials were applied as canvas lining adhesives. Single-lap shear tests both in quasi-static and creep conditions confirmed the dimensional stability provided by cellulose micro- and nanoparticles, with an important reduction of the adhesives compliance proportional to the filler content. Interestingly, MCC and CNC introduction did not impair the fracture behavior of the neat matrix.
