No. Use urea glue if you want to eliminate creep in laminations.
Titebond sometimes creeps.

Creep is where the molecules relax and relieve stress. Its most common in plastics but occurs in metals in many other materials. Take for instance a cable holding up a light or such. Over time the cable will stretch a bit, even though the light is well below its yield strength. Its more or less a permanent deformation over time. This is only really a problem if you are doing bent laminations where the glue bond is under constant strain. Otherwise there is no noticeable creep in a standard glue up.

The Wenge table top I built with Tilebond is still in one piece. It came out fine.
Creep is not an issue in that application.

Have your say...
