Gorilla Wood Glue is the reliable adhesive that woodworkers, carpenters and hobbyists trust for their woodworking projects. Gorilla Wood Glue, a PVA glue, offers the benefits of an easy-to-use water-based adhesive. Gorilla Wood Glue's premium formula creates a cross-linking bond to provide superior strength indoors or out. 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. 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. Coverage: 1 gallon of Gorilla Wood Glue will cover about 200 square feet. 1 fluid ounce will cover approximately 1.6 square feet.
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 55°F. Note that clamping time can be dependent on temperature, humidity, and the porosity of the wood.
- 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 backward with a toothpick, then rinse cap with warm water. To remove Gorilla Wood Glue from hands, wash with warm soap and water.
Allow for a minimum of 24 hours for full cure.
To extend shelf life, keep the container sealed and stored at 55°F-75°F. Gorilla Wood Glue will not harden in the bottle as long as the cap is closed and water is not allowed to evaporate from the bottle. This is freeze/thaw stable. If the glue is frozen, thaw at room temperature. If necessary, shake vigorously to restore to original consistency.
