Titebond calls Titebond III the “ultimate wood glue.” (Is the third time the charm?) It’s a waterproof wood glue that cleans up with water (before it dries, of course) and offers a one-year shelf life. Titebond says it has a polymer-based formula that offers the “preferred performance attributes as defined by professional woodworkers.”
Titebond III sports excellent water-resistance and provides a stronger bond by optimizing for wood-to-wood applications. It also doesn’t foam and requires less clamp time than polyurethane based adhesives. Working with Titebond doesn’t require the use of gloves, either.
For interior projects it offers a longer working time — giving woodworkers the necessary latitude to ensure that surfaces are precisely aligned before being bonded.
Overall, Titebond III combines big strength and a long 10 minute open time. Or so they say. I think we’ll pick up a tube and give it a shot sometime in the near future here.
Street pricing starts at $4 for a 4oz tube.
