Desford 1885 is a moderately fast-setting polyvinyl acetate emulsion adhesive. It canbe used for panel on frame construction and other types of laminations, such as high pressure laminate to particle board or plywood, and general carpentry applications.
Proper stock moisture content is important to successful assembly gluing. Adhesives generally set more slowly as moisture content of the wood increases. Recommended moisture content ranges are 10-12% in most interior applications.
