Glues - Set Resistance

< Home < Tips Area < Glues < Set Resistance


I've completed a set resistance test with Resorcinol, URAC, Hide Glue, EPON and Titebond III.  URAC is the clear winner under normal fishing conditions.   All of the glues will take a set when abused - including URAC.  I'm going to keep using TB III until a nontoxic creep resistant glue is on the market.  I would switch to URAC in a heartbeat if it was nontoxic.

The testing procedures are discussed in detail on the blog if anyone's interested.  They're not lab quality tests, but should be directionally correct.  (David Bolin)
