Adhesives for do-it-yourself furniture
Many do-it-yourself furniture projects require some sort of adhesive or sealant. When selecting such a product, please ensure it bonds with the materials you want to coat, seal, or attach. Additionally, if you plan on painting over your adhesive, you need to choose a paintable product. Your sealant or glue also needs to withstand the furniture’s ambient conditions, so check whether it is suitable for indoor or outdoor use.
Universal glues like Loctite's Extreme adhesives are good all-rounders if you are bonding different materials. For instance, Loctite Extreme Glue combines the versatility of polyoxysilane and the strength of polyurethane to create a premium formula for crafting and building jobs. It dries crystal clear, sets with no clamping, can be used indoors or outdoors, and resists water.
If you are working primarily with one material or material group, such as upholstery materials, opt for an adhesive specially designed for them. Loctite Vinyl, Fabric & Plastic is a great choice for this application.
