I am wondering if anyone has used Titebond’s Fluorescent wood glue?

I was going over their website to get the particulars on one of their other glues and saw this as an offer.

Here’s what it looks like under a black light after it dries:

Seems to be a really cool feature in a wood glue – especially at the same price as their standard waterproof glues.

I can’t recall seeing it for sale at any of our mega-depot’s, so I would have to mail-order it.

Just wondering if anyone has already tried it, and what their thoughts on this would be.

Here’s their webpage:

I usually just make note of where the glue squeeze out occurs, and remove it once it dries a bit.
I do like the TBII product. It is a good reliable woodworking glue.

Thanks for posting.

I haven’t used this yet but really sounds great ,Have you ever sanded a project though it was ready for stain put the stain on and all of a sudden there’s a glue mark . With this glue sand check with a black light no glow it’s time to stain can’t wait to try it I wouldn’t care if it was a little more expensive it would be worth it.

I tried some. Insanity is one of the small-print side effects.

Most glue is visable with UV light.

Just watch “glass pickers” at a local antique store.

Interesting stuff these blacklights, they pick up any reactive particles, and agree with ksSlim, I remember using one in a weapons factory many years ago to detect residue of silicone grease on parts prior to assembly.

Not sure if I would go to the effort as a damp cloth will do the same for checking prior th final stain finishing.

Trust Titebond to develop it though, and as Carl said is possibly worth a run, not sure what John means, I will stay tuned.
