Hot Melt Polyurethane Glue ??


I was poking around Titebond's website when I ran across their Hot Melt Polyurethane Glue. It seems to combine the initial grab of hot melt with the ultimate strength and waterproof characteristics of poly without the foaming. Looks like the cat's meow to me.
Has anybody tried it? Would you share your experiences with us?

We've used it many times. It works well, as strong as advertised. Two issues to keep in mind.
We don't use it unless we know we're going to use the entire $8 tube in one session. The glue is heat activated, and after the tube is heated, any unused glue still in the tube can't be reused (it doesn't re-melt when re-heated). At least that's been our experience.
It takes 24 hours for the glue to reach full strength, until then you only have the strength of medium quality hot melt to keep things together. We've had some lightly stressed joints come apart because the hot melt poly wasn't at full strength during assembly.
Hope this helps.

Andy, Thanks. That's just what I needed to know. I guess I'll pass.
