Titebond Heavy Duty Construction Adhesive is a versatile adhesive that exceeds the APA’s AFG-01 specification. It is designed for a wide range of construction applications including wet, frozen and treated lumber. It is also ideal for metal, brick, concrete, ceramics and most large panel-type substrates.
Titebond Heavy Duty fills gaps and irregularities between materials and provides a more solid backup surface. It reduces the amount of nailing and helps eliminate squeaky floors. It also offers excellent water-resistance and remains permanently flexible.
Generally a spread of 240 – 420 g/m2 of double glueline is required. If hardwood substrates are used glue spreads of 240 – 350 g/m2 are acceptable however for softwoods the range is typically 350 – 420 g/m2 based on a double mean glue line. Usually the glue-spread is sufficient if a small and regular amount of squeezeout is formed after pressure is applied. It is important that the glue is applied evenly.
