This will be of interest here:
I can tell you this.
DO NOT ALLOW TITEBOND GLUE TO BE SUBJECTED TO FREEZING TEMPS.
all caps to make a point.
my dad is an accomplished wood turner. he has a friend that makes fancy furniture. she made a bed that would cost thousands of dollars. her titebond glue arrived and it turned out it had gotten too cold. she delivered said fancy bed. it promptly fell apart a short time later or at delivery. not sure. but at any rate the glue did NOT work.
so keep that in mind.
You’re saying exposing the liquid glue to freezing kills it, or exposing the cured end product breaks the glue bond?
sorry I wasn’t clear.
the liquid glue in the jug/bottle cannot be exposed to freezing temps. it will stick things together afterwards, just not permanently.
my dad’s friend learned that with about an $8,000 bed. she was NOT happy.
apparently it froze or nearly froze when the jug was shipped to her. They sent her a new jug. but nothing for her labor.
Yup. I order my hot melt adhesive from a place in NJ. Every so often, I get a warning from them that they aren’t shipping because of the temperatures.
Spray adhesive is another one. It does not bond well if administered in cold temps.
