Wood Adhesives

Wood glue is an adhesive used to stick pieces of wood together. For a number of years these adhesives were derived from animal hide. Glue made from animal hide is manufactured by taking collagen from the skins of animals and turning it into products for specialised applications. It is generally used for musical instruments, as replica furniture, and as a conservation-grade repair to antique woodwork. This glue is measured according to its gel strength. Adhesives are manufactured in grades from 32 to 512 grams. The 192 gram strength is the most common when working with wood, while the 135 gram is the lowest grade for general woodwork. Wood adhesives above the 250 gram strength requires a lot of dilution, thus it is not commonly used.
 
Liquid versions of wood adhesives are also available. This adhesive is designed to keep the glue liquid at room temperature and to extend drying time. Companies that manufacture wood adhesives use a number of formulas to enhance their products. While some manufacturers use various kinds of resin, many companies still use a variant of Cyanoacrylate, which is commonly known as Crazy glue or Superglue. Manufacturers are now developing superglue which bonds with reduced strength. This is because the adhesive tends to drip out causing most of it to soak into the wood.
 
Many hobbyists commonly use polyvinyl acetate (PVA) when working with wood, or aliphatic resin emulsion, commonly known as ‘carpenter's glue.’ One should look for a wood adhesive that does not slip when bonding wood and has a quick drying time with a strong bond.
