What glue to use for laminated utensils9/26
I'm making laminated utensils used for cooking. What type of glue can be safe and hold up to hot/moist conditions without causing health issues and/or damaging the utensil?
Titebond III seems to be my only choice so far. Waterproof and FDA approved
Depends on what heat you expect. I would use epoxy. Healthwise, it can't be any worse than cooking on teflon or warming food in plastic.
While you will find it hard to get a manufacturer to state definitively, modern glues are considered harmless once they have cured.
Utensils are not left in contact for long (as opposed to storage), so it should matter little.
As for the durability, you should test them yourself to be sure. The durability could be why they are not more prevalent.
the only glue that i have found to be FDA approved is tightbond III. I have used it on cutting boards in the past
