Bonding Wood

Animal glues, available in liquid and powder form, are frequently used in wood bonding. But animal glues are very sensitive to variations in temperature and moisture. Casein-type adhesives offer moderate resistance to moisture and high temperature, as do urea resin adhesives, which can be used to bond wood to wood, or wood to plastic.

Vinyl-acetate emulsions are excellent for bonding wood to materials that are especially porous, such as metal and some plastic laminates, but these adhesives also tend to be sensitive to temperature and moisture. Rubber, acrylic, and epoxy general-purpose adhesives also perform well with wood and other materials.
