We've just started trying this product. I do see some of you are using.
Curious what you have found. And the applications you use it in.
I will say, from our tests, it works better 'without' the activator.
What do you all say about this 2P-10??
Great glue for specific purposes. My most frequent use for it is as a clamp for miters. The glue is brittle and if you drop your glued items it can snap apart.
I use the activator on one pc and put a drop on either end of the miter and then lightly apply TBII around the perimeter of the joint. I squeeze them together until it cures and then set it aside for the yellow glue to cure. Now you have a good strong joint that won't easily fracture.
I also use it as a quick filler for splits in wood and veneers as long as it's getting painted.
I recently had a project to do some 1/8" inlay strips in some interior doors where the inlays ran full length and width of the doors. The inlays were somewhere like 8-10" from the edges of the door so clamping was an issue. I used the 2P-10 adhesive and it worked like a charm. Anytime we need to quickly attach a piece (especially for jigs) it's great...
I use it for a whole host of things. One of them is gluing sub counters in the shop. I can easily put a four foot return on a top. Put some plastic on the bench so it won't stick, slather the joint and clamp. Spray activate on the surface, wait a bit, lift and spray the underside. Wait a few minutes and then process like one piece.
I might need a longer piece of lumber, cut a scarf joint, apply glue, clamp and spray with activate. It isn't instant set you need to wait.
A week ago I glued the same piece three times. After cutting a scarf joint on each end of an eight foot and ten foot 2x4, slathered with P210, clamped then activated the joint. I was able to pick it up without falling apart but when it went thru the molder only the outside surface had cured so it fell apart when the surface was cut off. Need to wait a little longer.
As for expense? How fast do you want to go? Wish we weren’t always in a hurry but it's the way it is...
I like the Titebond version a little better and the new Titebond aerosol activator cans are smaller and easier to carry around. But i do still use the 2P10 also.
The titebond version I hadn't seen before.
Do you find it that way?
Not sure what you mean by restrictive in use.
I use the thin to stabilize punky wood, incl soft knots in alder. It wicks into hairline cracks nicely, and if you spray activate the outside faces, you can feed it into the end grain without it making a big mess.
I mix sander dust with the thick and use it for small defect repair. I use powdered dyes to tint the dust and keep a few containers under the bench ready to mix. For most woods, going a shade darker looks pretty natural, like a pitch pocket in cherry.
And use the thick for jigs all the time with activator on one part and a bead of glue on the other.
