adhesives over finishes2/7
Looking for an adhesive that will stick to a finish. Usually use a nitro lacquer for finish, but considering going to a water based finish. There is no option to remove the finish to expose bare wood. The product will likely be specialty product, as all the regular OTC products have been tried. The best performer so far has been DUCO cement, which is expensive and only has a fair bond. Any ideas? I see an online listing for a german product, but have been unable to determine if it is available in the US.
maybe this will work?
Regular old Melamine glue will probably stick better than you'd expect.
I've had to remove drawer fronts from drawer boxes that were glued & screwed together (wood DF with precat, wood dovetail box with UV coating). The glue was Roo melamine glue, and the bond was far stronger than I ever expected. It literally peeled the precat film right off the wood.
I've used Titebond melamine glue to glue trim to prefinished panels before with good success.
