English translation:water binding
Explanation:
The first URL is about skin adhesive hydrogels that bind to the skin. No water must be added, but it is taken in from the substrate (in this case skin, in your case wood), thus promoting adhesion. The text refers to water binding, which happens with the water from the substrate.
A search on "water binding" AND adhesive in Northern Light gave 48 sources listed.
I think you may mean "does not require" in your question.
