Wood adhesive, sometimes known as ‘wood glue’, is an effective bonding agent for any number of DIY jobs that involve wooden materials. Wood adhesive is an essential for those who are carrying out tasks within properties which require the bonding of wood.
There are multiple varieties of wood adhesives and choosing the correct adhesives for the job will not only ensure stress-free and effective work, but it will also help with reliability and structural integrity.
Firstly, the type of wood adhesive or wood glue you need is usually determined by the surface it’s being applied onto.
Secondly, the environment in which the wood glue will be setting in is equally important i.e., if the glue is being applied to wood that will reside outside, it needs to be water resistant and weatherproof.
Thirdly, the purpose of the work bears an important role in picking the right wood glue. Is the adhesive being used as a low weight-bearing fixture or will it need to be strong enough to withstand heavy weight or strain? Does the wood adhesive need to have filling properties as well if perhaps it’s being used in repair works?
Fourthly, how quickly does the wood glue need to set? Rapid setting adhesive might be required to bond pieces of wood together with strong adhesion in a short period of time. Typical PVA wood glue can take between 8-12 hours and in some settings, this might be too slow and disruptive.
