I’m going to keep this VERY simple … I strayed from this product today and regret it already.
Ignore all other construction adhesives. PL Ploy is the one to use.
It cures in 24 hours as long as the temperature and humidity are within a normal day. It’s much faster in the summer with high humidity and it’s slower in the winter when its cold and dry. This can be adjusted by adding some moisture to the mix (spray a wood surface lightly … before applying)
We use this stuff constantly. It holds to anything, fills gaps, and it can be dyed with transtints.
Liquid Nails is a waste of time and money – watch out they say “DRY” time NOT cure time w/ that product. Some of their cure times is 2 weeks. Who has two weeks to wait for glue to dry??? Not me …
We use this on wood – even rotten wood and it works. Dry antiques – works … concrete / stone – works … it’s flexible also and fills huge gaps in weird situations. This works great when fixing damaged or rotten mortis and tenon joints.
It creates amazing hydraulic pressure – thus you WILL crack something if you put in too much when you have a solid joint. Be very careful when you are making a new piece of furniture. HOWEVER if you have a cracked leg or something with lots of odd nail holes left in it it works great. When you squeeze a joint it will press the adheasive into every open hole or crack and ooze out securing as it dries.
I’m just rambling this – not making the review sophisticated or throwing in a ton of side stories. This product simply WORKS … and the competition has given us every possible failure. Loctite poly has never failed me …
