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?
"I'd rather expect the best of people and be wrong than expect the
worst and be right."
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.
