Titebond III Ultimate Wood Glue is the first one-part, water cleanup wood glue ever offered that is proven waterproof. The waterproof formula passes the ANSI/HPVA Type I water-resistance specification and offers superior bond strength, longer open assembly time, and lower application temperature. Titebond III is non-toxic, solvent free, and cleans up with water (safer to use than traditional waterproof wood glues). It provides strong initial tack, sands easily without softening, and is FDA approved for indirect food contact (cutting boards). Ideal for both interior and exterior applications.

- 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 45°F. Store product below 75°F. Storage above this temperature may cause product to thicken and reduce the usable shelf life. If thickened, shake vigorously by firmly tapping bottle on a hard surface until product is restored to original form. Because of variances in the surfaces of treated lumber, it is a good idea to test for adhesion. For best results gluing exterior doors or exotic and oily woods, please contact Titebonds Technical Support Team at 1-800-347-4583. Read MSDS before use. Keep from freezing. Keep out of reach of children.
