Titebond Melamine Glue is designed for bonding wood, particleboard, MDF and other porous substrates to synthetic materials such as melamine, vinyl and HPL as well as metals. It offers a fast initial tack, yet has a longer open time that allows for the accurate alignment of working materials. Titebond Melamine Glue is a water-based adhesive that is nonflammable, has low odor, dries clear and cleans up with water. Its thicker formulation offers fewer runs and drips, making it easier to use and more effective for precise assemblies.

Features & Benefits

  • Bonds melamine, vinyl coated products, and HPL to porous materials
  • Thicker formulation - fewer runs and drips
  • Fast setting - Excellent strength
  • Dries clear
  • Long open time
  • Fast initial tack



Application Guidelines

  • Application Temperature: Above 40 °F.
  • Open Assembly Time: 5 minutes (70 °F./50%RH)
  • Total Assembly Time: 10-15 minutes (70°F./50%RH)
  • Minimum Required Spread : Approximately 6 mils or 250 square feet per gallon
  • Required Clamping Pressure: Enough to bring joints tightly together (generally, 30-80 psi for HPL,100-150 psi for softwoods,125-175 psi for medium woods and 175-250 psi for hardwoods)
  • Method of Application: Easily spread with a roller spreader or brush, or may be transferred to plastic bottles for finer gluing applications.
  • Cleanup: Damp cloth while glue is wet. Scrape off and sand dried excess.
