Mixed glues

Arent some wood glues 2 types mixed, pva plus I forget what?

I would certainly expect so, as its sometimes an effective way of getting some of the performance of the more costly glue but at a reduced price. I've often read that wood glue that is a mix of yellow and white PVAs are common. NT 16:51, 12 April 2007 (BST)


A lot of this page is taken from wikipedia, except that in wikipedia's version there aren't all the red links to articles that don't exist. Also a lot of it seems American, like yellow glue, Gorrilla glue, Excel, crazy glue, resorcinol. And what's contact cement? Is that what we call impact adhesive, like Evo-stick?

And what about cascamite and examite? Those and PVA and PU are the main wood glues I'm familiar with (and though I'm no woodworker they seem to be what the woodworkers I know use).

Welcome aboard. I think this article was taken from wikipedia and edited to suit us - as the wikip' articles are not always that well suited to our purpose here.

If you find there are US terms and you want to change them to British ones, please do. Its all a work in progress. I hesitate to in this case as I'm no expert on glue types and the related US terms.

The approach of copying and editing to suit seems to have worked well for the few articles its been done with here. Wikipedia has lots of good stuff but is by no means complete, mostly discusses US practices and terminology, neither of which are the same as here in general, and their articles often contain a lot of material that isnt relevant to us, and omit practical how-to stuff, which is some of the most useful info for our purpose here.

What about Polyester & vinylester

Are these good for wood? I'm fairly sure the answer's yes, but I don't have the knowledge. NT 19:36, 2 February 2008 (GMT)
