A fellow at the mfg told me that acetone is the recommended cleanup solvent for errant drips on to wood but NOT for skin. Should any of the adhesive drip onto wood it can either wiped clean with acetone or sanded off or both.

If one should get any on the skin of fingers & get them stuck together, immersing the affected skin into or under hot water for 1-2 minutes will allow the bond on the skin to separate.

I did ask WHY one would use this glue instead of the yellow aliphatic resin glue and was told the cost and cure time. This glue IS more expensive than the yellow glue. They told me that their commercial customers like the idea that they can achieve more ‘completed’ glue-ups in a day than with use of the traditional wood glues that require a long clamp time. That sounds logical, certainly for a commercial wood shop where time is money. So I guess it just boils down to a matter of personal choice, price & cure-time.
