Choosing the right type of glue for a home improvement project is key to ensuring success for your project. As experts in architectural moulding, The Moulding Company knows that the right glue in the right way can make all the difference in your project. For the correct glue, you’ll need to consider whether you need a waterproof adhesive, how intense the bond strength needs to be, what types of materials you’ll be using it with, and more.

At The Moulding Company in the San Francisco Bay Area, we carry a wide selection of Titebond adhesives designed for interior wood applications, exterior waterproof use, or all-purpose construction needs. Here are the details on what to expect from each type of adhesive so that you can select the right type of wood glue or construction glue for your project.

Titebond Wood Glue

No-run, no-drip wood Titebond Wood Glue is ideal for finishing trim, crown molding, window casing, baseboards, and other similar applications. This versatile wood glue bonds most porous and semi-porous materials, making it a great choice for a wide range of products and applications. Thick and fast-drying, this adhesive provides a strong initial tack while still allowing for realignment of pieces as you work. It can also be easily sanded and is unaffected by finishes.

Made of thixotropic polyvinyl acetate, this beige glue is ideal for any application requiring professional-strength, no-run wood glue. It should not be used in exterior applications or interior use where moisture is likely. In those cases, you should turn to Titebond’s Ultimate Wood Glue for exceptional waterproofing capabilities.

Titebond Ultimate Wood Glue

Titebond Ultimate Wood Glue is the ideal choice for any situation where moisture will affect your project, such as gluing exterior components, wood elements near a sink, and other applications. This waterproof wood glue provides superior bond strength and is FDA approved for indirect food contact, making it ideal for use in cutting boards or similar projects. It’s also solvent free and cleans up with water, making it safer to use than traditional waterproof wood glues.

If you’re looking for an extremely versatile, waterproof wood glue, this is a great choice for your project. It can stay open longer than other wood glues, has a lower application temperature so it can be used outside in cooler temperatures, and resists solvents, heat, and mildew. It’s also unaffected by finishes.

Designed for a wide range of construction applications, this light tan adhesive is waterproof and made of synthetic elastomeric polymer. As an extra bonus, this glue will not freeze and even works on wet and frozen lumber. This adhesive is ideal for filling gaps and irregularities between materials, reduces the amount of nailing necessary, and eliminates squeaky floors.
