|How does Titebond® III compare to polyurethane glues?|
In addition to excellent water-resistance, Titebond® III provides a stronger bond on wood
to wood applications, doesn’t foam and requires less clamp time. Titebond® III has no
health issues, doesn’t require the use of gloves and cleans up with water.
Why should I use Titebond® III instead of Titebond® II or the other Titebond Wood Glues?
Titebond® III is especially useful for outdoor applications in cooler temperatures or when
concern for substantial moisture calls for the use of a water resistant glue.
For interior applications, the longer working time ensures that substrates may be precisely aligned before being bonded. Overall, Titebond® III combines superior strength, water resistance, long open-time and low chalk temperature into one easy-to-use formulation.
(Chalk temperature is the lowest recommended temperature at which the glue,
air and materials can be during application, to ensure a good bond)
Titebond® III combines the strength, sandability, ease of use and water cleanup of PVAs
(aliphatic resins) with the durability, open time and water-resistance of polyurethanes.
