Gorilla Glue: Use, Storage and Tips on Polyurethane and PVA products.
Two of the most common comments I hear from fellow woodworkers about Gorilla Glue are that “it foams” and I didn’t know they make a PVA wood glue.
As far as foaming, yes, this is how polyurethane-based glues dry and cure. In many cases people use too much of it, or forget to read the instructions that calls for dampening one side of the surface to be glued to help activate the glue.
In terms of their Wood Glue (Type II- PVA), I’ve used this product for years and have been
pleased with it’s performance, workability and shelf life. It’s definitely worth a try if you haven’t done so already.
Below are two of the latest videos from The Gorilla Workshop that I worked on with the fine folks at Gorilla Glue covering the use, storage and tips for both the Polyurethane and PVA formulations. Everything you’d ever think of asking about glue, but were afraid to ask.
