How to use
1. PREPARE

For best results, it is essential that the wood surfaces are prepared prior to application of glue. For laminating, the surfaces should be planed smooth, leaving the board surface free from machine marks, tear-out and snipes. Also, be careful to avoid burnishing and end snipes.
Remove clear applicator tip to clean out glue build-up if present. If the glue thickens or separates, shake vigorously until the original consistency is restored.


2. APPLICATION

Just how much Gorilla Wood Glue to apply depends on many factors. In general, apply a generous amount of glue on one of the surfaces. On hard-to-glue woods, apply the glue on both surfaces. Rub together with the other surface to distribute the glue evenly on both surfaces. Enough glue should be applied so that a fine bead of glue squeeze-out will occur when clamping.


3. CLAMPING

The technique and type of clamp to be used is determined by many factors: the specific type of joint, type of stock or lumber, moisture content of stock, room temperature, assembly time and surface quality. In general, apply enough pressure that will cause a fine bead of glue to squeeze out when the proper pressure is applied.

Clamping Time (amount of time pressure needs to remain applied): 20–30 minutes for room temperature applications. The temperature must be above 13°C. Note that clamping time can be dependent on temperature, humidity, and the porosity of the wood.

Cure Time (amount of time for glue to reach total bonding strength): 24 hours


4. CLEAN UP / STORAGE

Clean up while glue is wet: Use a clean, damp cloth to wipe off excess glue. Make as many passes as needed with the clean area of the cloth to remove all the glue. When areas have completely dried, sand as needed. Wash hands, skin and damp cloths in soap and warm water, then rinse.

Clean up when glue has dried: Use a sharp putty knife, razor, or sharp scraper to shave hardened glue from surface, then sand as needed. Soak hands and skin in soap and warm water, wash, then rinse.

Cleaning the bottle tip: Use a clean, damp cloth to wipe off excess glue after closing. If tip becomes clogged with dry glue, remove the cap and push the clog backwards with a toothpick, then rinse cap with warm water.

To remove Gorilla Wood Glue from hands, wash with warm soap and water.

Application temperature should be above 13˚C. Before finishing, sand surfaces to minimise glue exposure. Not recommended for structural or load-bearing applications, or for continuous submersion or below-waterline use.

Close cap after use. Store at room temperature (do not freeze). If the glue thickens or separates, shake vigorously until the original consistency is restored.

  • GORILLA WOOD GLUE IS TOO THICK FOR MY APPLICATION, CAN I THIN THIS GLUE?

Gorilla Wood Glue, unlike Original Gorilla Glue, is a water-based adhesive. You can thin Gorilla Wood Glue by adding water (not to exceed 5% weight).

  • WILL GORILLA WOOD GLUE ADHERE TO STAINED OR PAINTED ITEMS?

Gorilla Wood Glue is intended for use on hardwoods, softwoods, cardboard, cork, and composite lumber.

  • IS GORILLA WOOD GLUE FOOD SAFE?

We do not recommend bringing food into contact, either directly or indirectly, with cured or uncured Gorilla Wood Glue.

  • HOW CAN I CLEAN A CLOGGED TIP?

To clean the bottle tip, use a clean, damp cloth to wipe off excess glue after closing. If tip becomes clogged with dry glue, remove the cap, pull off the nozzle, and push the clog backward with a toothpick, then rinse cap with warm water. If you have difficulty pulling up on the nozzle, use a pair of pliers or scissors placed at the base of the nozzle and twist slightly.
