Best Glue for Veneer


If you ever use veneer, a new video on YouTube™ by Darryl Keil, President of Vacuum Pressing Systems, Inc., is a must view. He discusses all the gluing options for veneer, and rates them according to results. He covers their properties, as well as when to use which glue for different types of veneering situations. Darryl addresses PVA (white or yellow glue), epoxy, polyurethane glue, hide glue, urea-formaldehyde resin and contact cements. He also talks about the definition of veneer, and which glues are affected by moisture and heat. He then talks about choosing the right adhesive for highly figured and crotch veneers, oily woods, panels that have veneers going in different directions, horizontal and vertical applications, high polish finishes, and large panels.
