Instant Bond


Immediate. Professional. Results.

Although our core Titebond Wood Glue product line is ideal for a vast majority of woodworking applications, we realize that there is a growing need for faster, and in some cases “instant”, adhesion capabilities. For this reason, we now offer the Titebond Instant Bond line of ethyl-cyanoacrylate-based wood adhesives, complete with an adhesive activator that accelerates the bonding process.

Titebond Instant Bond is a two-part bonding system that takes between 5 – 15 seconds to set and 30 – 60 seconds for initial cure. It provides a strong, permanent bond and is ideal for hard to reach joints or surface areas that are difficult to clamp. Designed primarily for wood and wood products, this adhesive is also very effective on a wide variety of materials and substrates.

Just the Facts

Our pure, high-quality cyanoacrylate (CA) adhesives are available in four viscosities, depending on the application or the MIL specification required.
