Glue the wooden parts

which glues to use to glue the wood

vinyl glue

Vinyl glues

They are completely non-toxic water-based glues suitable for gluing wood. It takes several hours to make a grip so it is useful to join the parts through the clamp during the glue drying phase.

Adhesive glues

Very strong glues are used to glue the planes in formica or plastic. After the drafting it is important to hit the surface with a mallet interposing an axis to distribute the impact.

Cyanoacrylic glues

Cyanoacrylic glues

They have an extremely limited setting time, which can be dangerous because they could stick their hands together. when using these glues, special care must be taken and protected with protective gloves and goggles. They work well especially on rigid materials because they have a crystalline nature that can not stand bending.

Bicomponent epoxy glues

They are particular adhesives constituted by hardener and binder that must be mixed in the appropriate doses before being used. They are very powerful, generally they harden in 24 hours.



More than joining parts, they are suitable for filling joints or cracks. They can also seal and waterproof surfaces
