Titebond (I, II, and III) are PVA (poly-vinyl acetate) glues. Water is the solvent for the PVA.

When the glue is applied to wood, the PVA migrates into the wood fibers and cures as the water evaporates. The resulting bond is the result of a chemical reaction between the wood surfaces and the PVA.

Any bond that results from PVA glue being applied to metal (or any other non-wood substance) is purely coincidental and, IMNTBHO, will be prone to failure.
