Elmer’s Glue for the DIYer in You

Long known for their almost iconic wood/carpenters glue, Elmer’s Glue has re-worked their product lineup as well as their glue bottles and are targeting the DIY crowd.
The new lineup consists of four glues all made based on a particular use or project. Here’s what Elmer’s has to say about each.
Elmer’s Carpenter’s Wood Glue – It’s great for interior projects, non-toxic, easy to clean up with water, sandable and paintable. It also creates a stronger bond than the wood, meaning the wood will break before the bond does.
Elmer’s Carpenter’s Wood Glue MAX – Elmer’s newest all-in-one wood formula tackles indoor and outdoor projects. It’s waterproof, sandable, stainable, paintable, non-toxic, easy to clean up with water and bonds stronger than the wood. It also resists heat, mold and mildew.

Elmer’s Glue-All – This strong multi-purpose adhesive is great for interior projects, works best with wood, pottery, paper and cloth, dries clear and is non-toxic.
Elmer’s Glue-All MAX – This is an extremely strong polyurethane, multi-purpose adhesive, perfect for indoor and outdoor use. It’s also sandable, paintable and waterproof and works on a variety of surfaces including stone, metal and wood.
The Glue-All MAX sounds intriguing and a definite departure from what we typically use Elmer’s glue for. We are going to give it a try on our next projects and we’ll report back to how it performed.
If you’re seeking a new glue solution give Elmer’s another look. They might have just the glue you need.
