In Stock


Titebond III Ultimate is the most advanced wood glue available today. While all Titebond products provide superior performance, Titebond III is especially useful for outdoor applications in cooler temperatures or when concern for substantial moisture calls for the use of a Type I glue (USA boil test). For interior applications, the longer working time of Titebond III provides woodworkers the necessary latitude to ensure that substrates are precisely aligned before being bonded. Overall, Titebond III combines superior strength, and ability with water cleanup the ease of use of aliphatic resins with the durability and water resistance of polyurethanes into one easy-to-use formulation.

Not for continuous submersion or for use below the waterline. Not for structural or load-bearing applications. Use when temperature, glue, and materials are above 7.22°C. Store product below 23.8°C. Storage above this temperature may cause the product to thicken and reduce the usable shelf life. If thickened, shake vigorously by firmly tapping the bottle on a hard surface until the product is restored to the original form. Because of variances in the surfaces of treated lumber, it is a good idea to test for adhesion. FRead Safety Daya Sheet before use. KEEP FROM FREEZING. KEEP OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN.
