Titebond Cold Press for HPL is a high-quality, economical alternative to contact cement for large-scale flat laminating. It is specifically formulated for cold press laminating of High Pressure Laminates and backed veneers to solid woods, particleboard, MDF, plywood and other porous materials. Titebond Cold Press is also suitable for most veneer and panel-on-frame applications. It offers a moderate speed of set, a translucent glue line and contains none of the harmful or corrosive fumes typical of most contact cements.

Titebond Cold Press for HPL is specifically designed for laminating flexible materials and is not suited for other types of assembly applications. Vacuum pressing should only be used for veneers up to 1/16 inch in thickness. Do not use when temperature, glue or materials are below 50°F. Not recommended for exterior use or where moisture is likely. Freezing may not affect the function of the product but may cause it to thicken. Agitation should restore product to original form. Read MSDS before use. NOTE: STIR PRODUCT BEFORE USE TO ENSURE UNIFORMITY. KEEP FROM FREEZING.
