Review from St Paul Minnesota
Review by Brian Nelsen
Color choice was perfect for the woods suggested, very little bleed thru even of very open veneers. Great product that performs better than expected.
Review by Jeff Rapkins
My company uses this veneer glue for all of our maple and sycamore projects. With it, glue lines are invisible. No complaints at all.
Very Strong Glue
Review by Steve Johnson
I have used this glue extensively and it has all but replaced yellow glue in my shop. Very strong glue. Joe is a great guy to buy from he always comes thru.
Better Bond™ Cold Press Veneer Glue Tips
A medium density rubber foam roller is the best way to apply the adhesive. The rule of thumb is that the surface of the substrate should look "heavily painted" with veneer glue but not dripping wet. Always apply glue to the substrate material, not to the veneer.
If you are using Better Bond veneer glue with a paper-backed veneer, be sure to lightly scuff sand the back side of the veneer before application to allow adequate penetration of the adhesive. It’s also a good idea to scuff sand the substrate material (especially MDF).
One of the most common problems is the tendency of the panel to warp after it is removed from the press. There are two easy ways to eliminate this. Be sure to veneer both sides of the panel. A backer or balance veneer should be used on the reverse side of the substrate. This will even out the stress placed on the substrate as the glue dries and the veneer settles onto its final position.
The second step to preventing panel warp is to allow both sides of the panel to dry evenly. Simply place the panel on a flat surface with a few dowels under it until the glue has cured.
Please note that some settling of content is normal and does not affect the integrity of the bond. To minimize settling, store the bottle on its side and rotate it one-half turn once a month.
