Been using it in the shop for about….8 years now? Averaged out over the years I think I’ve bought somewhere in the neighborhood of 10 thousand gallons? No…that’s not a typo.
Interestingly enough, like you, I used to buy Lepage, but they stopped selling wholesale in 45 gallon drums so we switched to Durapro AW-2300.
The properties are very similar to the yellow Lepage product as far as open and set time, rigidity of bent Lams etc. I doubt you’ll notice a whole lot of difference, if any. ‘Spring back’ on bent lams after 24 hrs was nearly identical(next to nil).

Much of what lumbering_on says is true as far as straight lamination’s goes. White glue works fine. The only real difference with most is a longer open time as white usually has less solids. Because of that though, you’ll get more spring back on bent lamination’s with white glue.

Don’t fall into the common mentality here that Titebond is the bestest ever! In most common woodworking situations that’s horseshit. All common PVA’s have different properties as far as viscosities, open and set time, but at the end of the day, for all basic face/edge laminations…your sticks will be stuck…regardless of the brand or color of PVA.
