Weldbond : Wood, Carpentry & Cabinet Making
Acid Free • Dries Clear • No Fumes
Weldbond® bonds virtually all woods, hardboard, chipboard, flakeboard or any porous composition board to each other or other materials including metal, glass and expanded polystyrene. Maximum performance is obtained when Weldbond® and material to be bonded are both at room temperature. Weldbond® dries clear and won’t leave a yellow glue line in joints.
Not recommended for use in construction of laminated structural beams.
Weldbond® contains no fillers and is 3 to 4 times thicker than other wood glues. Tackiness is developed very rapidly and yet it is possible to adjust the assembly into its final position without difficulty. NO HEAVY CLAMPING REQUIRED. In most cases hand pressure is sufficient to give flexible bond of enormous strength. Provided the wood is not warped, light clamping is all that is required. When dry, the joint is stronger than the wood.
Weldbond® can be used on flat surfaces, on edges, and on end grain. Bond strength on mortise joints, dove tailing and level surfaces exceeds 1,700 lbs. per square inch. It eliminates the need for plugging when fixing shelves and brackets. Wood lintels can be easily fixed over door and window frames using Weldbond®.
METHOD: Clean surface to be coated. Rub or brush a full, even coat of Weldbond® to each surface to be bonded. Allow surfaces to become tacky, then bring together and clamp lightly. This eliminates any problem of glue rinse-out, caused by pressure being applied to a thick liquid. Particularly important with hardwoods such as ash, walnut and oak.
END GRAIN BONDING: Prime both surfaces with a solution of 1 part Weldbond® and 5 parts water, allow to dry. Make final bond with full strength Weldbond® applied to both surfaces.
GLUE LINE REMOVAL BEFORE STAINING OR FINISHING: To clean up a glue line, drip or run from a joint, wash thoroughly with warm water and sponge until surface is free of all glue. This must be done within 20 minutes after gluing. When wet, the glued joint will accept a stain or latex paint. There will be no noticeable glue line and surface will stain uniformly.
WELDBOND® USED WITH FILLERS: You can mix Weldbond® with wood flour, talcum powder, tile grout, marble dust or sawdust. This mixture can be used for the filling of holes, dents or reshaping. These filling mixtures can easily be sanded with any open grain sandpaper. Stain or tint can be added during the mixing to the desired shade with a universal colorant.
PLASTIC WOOD FILLER: Weldbond® mixed with fine sawdust (wood flour) makes an unequalled plastic wood filler of tremendous strength. NOTE: Shrinkage will occur.
NOTE: Before starting projects always do test pieces first to make sure you are getting the strength you desire.
