I did a little experiment today using “LocTite” PL glue and the result took me by surprise. I’ve been boasting for a while how nothing sticks to my workbench’s new surface which is bamboo flooring. Wood glue, stains and paint are easily removed from my workbench.http://lumberjocks.com/topics/39419.

Today I glued 2 pieces of bamboo flooring (finished side to finish side) with the PL glue. I thought that they wouldn’t stick together, but I was wrong. I tried prying them apart and hitting one piece with a hammer… nothing will separate the pieces. I’m impressed with that PL glue.

How about a link to whatever product you’re referring to ? The only “PL” products I could find online were their Construction Adhesives. Thanks : )

It’s impressive that it bonds materials like that as well as foam board products. Great information; thank you.

Kindly,

Lee

Yep, that’s a construction adhesive…Liquid Nails will do the same thing. Be careful getting it on you…it sticks VERY well to skin. Ask me how I know.

I use PL often whenever I have to glue 2 pieces of wood together where the 2 pieces don’t or can’t be fitted tight enough together with clamps and wood glue. Bonding results have always been very good.

Just be careful to not put too much (squeeze out) if you’re finishing the area later – any visible dried PL can’t be stain-matched later.
