    Default Jeffery's Waterproof Marine Glues "What to Use and How to Use It"

    Jeffery’s Marine Glue was a product of Alfred Jeffery & Co.

    The product we can buy today is Jeffery’s No. 2 Marine Glue. Does this imply that there was a No. 1 Marine Glue, or other products? The short answer is yes! Take a look at the inside back cover for a list.

    This brochure was created by Alfred Jeffery & Co in what appears to be 1929. Their first product appeared in 1840 and with decades of experience, the company sought to drive sales by explaining “What to Use and How to Use It” in reference to their product line.

    Each page is presented as an image and with hand transcribed text, so as to make the brochure searchable via Google or the Forum. Any typographical errors are my own and I would appreciate hearing about them, so as to correct the record.

    Instruction is provided by the company on many topics, but of most interest will be the instruction on applying Jeffery’s Marine Glue to deck seams. Do not miss the recommended tool for paying deck seams illustrated on page 9, or the special directions for filling very narrow deck seams on page 24.

    Please do understand that the following is not me talking. The following is provided by the company.

    How to make your decks
    last longer

    Decks and how to preserve them have always
    been a problem. All through the ages ways
    and means of keeping the deck trim and
    leakproof have been devised. In 1840 the
    late Alfred Jeffery, after patient scientific
    research, developed a formula which he
    named “Marine Glue” with a conviction
    that it would solve this deck problem. He
    first offered his formula to the British gov-
    ernment. Government officials advised Mr.
    Jeffery to send his formula to the record office and
    protect it by patent rights.

    Many experiments and tests were made by order of
    the government to test the quality of Jeffery’s Marine
    Glue. A committee of master shipwrights convened in
    1842 and reported unanimously that the Marine Glue
    Was vastly superior to the pitch formerly used for pay-
    ing deck seams as well as for other purposes.

    Only after five years struggle against prejudices did
    Mr. Jeffery succeed to convince the shipping industry
    of the superiority of his glue over pitch.

    Today, designers, ship-builders and owners unani-
    mously concede the superiority of Jeffery’s Marine Glue.
    Since the general acceptance of Marine Glue, many imi-
    tators have entered the field. Various marine glues have
    been produced with the sole object of competing on a
    price basis. Naturally such price competitive products
    are of inferior quality and many who have unfor-
    tunately used such inferior grades have been disappointed
    and taken an adverse stand against Marine Glue. Ob-
    viously inferior glues are no better than pitch, in-
    asmuch as both grow brittle and crack in cold weather.

    Jeffery’s Marine Glues are elastic and resilient. Heat
    Or cold cause no ill effects. They expand and contract
    with the deck and do not crack, pulverize or chip out
    of the seam.

    The economy of Jeffery’s Marine Glue is apparent
    When spread out over a series of years. Inferior glues
    Or pitch have to be constantly replaced, involving costs


    of labor as well as material all of which can be saved
    by using the proper grade of Jeffery’s Marine Glue in
    the first place.

    Labor, cotton, oakum and covering used in caulking
    your deck seams costs you from four to twelve cents
    per foot. About one cent added would enable you to
    use the best grade of Jeffery’s Marine Glue which will
    outlast pitch or cheap, so-called Marine Glues. In other
    words, by investing about once cent per foot in a high-
    grade Marine Glue, save one or more recaulkings.

    Another economical feature of Jeffery’s Marine Glue
    Is its volume. The volume per pound is fully 15 to 30
    percent greater than other makes. Pound for
    pound Jeffery’s Marine Glues will go further and pro-
    duce better and more lasting results.

    The diagrams below show the action of Jeffery’s Ma-
    rine Glue in deck seams, where the planking is sub-
    jected to expansion and contraction

    FIG.1. Heat Opens Seams as shown at A in Fig. 1. The
    Glue must be elastic and expand with seam to pre-
    vent racking and chipping out.

    FIG.2. Water and Cold close Seams as shown at B in Fig. 2.
    The Glue must be resilient and contract with the seam to
    prevent crushing.

    As the temperature and weather conditions vary these
    Forms, A and B constantly interchange. This action is
    A most severe test of the quality of the material used in
    the seams. For more than 80 years Jeffery’s Marine
    Glues have been subjected to this quality test and never
    yet failed to prove their vast superiority over all other

    What to use for Yachts and Motor Boats

    Jeffery’s No. 1 Extra Qual-
    ity Marine Yacht Glue stands in
    a class by itself. It is the highest
    grade Marine Glue obtainable
    and is specified by all the prom-
    inent designers and used exlu-
    sively by the builders of high
    class yachts.

    Its outstanding characteristics
    are elasticity, flexibility and ten-
    acity. It remains securely in the
    seams under all conditions. It
    compensates for the varying di-
    mensions of the seams due to the
    shrinking and swelling of the
    deck timbers. Though Jeffery’s
    Marine Yacht Glue is higher
    In price than some compositions
    or putty, the saving in its appli-
    cation more than offsets the
    lower cost of these substitutes,
    when you add the greater ex-
    pense in their use, caused by the
    necessity of priming seams and
    the slow hand method of pres-
    sing the composition with a
    putty knife. The use of Jeffery’s
    Marine Yacht Glue is economy
    in application and service.


    Jeffery’s No. 1 Extra Quality
    Marine Glue is particularly
    Adapted for use in the small
    seams of yachts and motor boats
    owing to its fine pouring quali-
    ties. When thoroughly melted
    it is nearly as liquid as water,
    hence it reaches the lowest point
    in the smallest seam.

    Another characteristic of high
    Importance is the fact that it
    Will not track or become sticky
    under the heat of tropical sun.
    It does not become “tacky” until
    reaching nearly the liquid state.
    For best results we recommend

    Jeffery’s No. 1 Extra Quality
    Marine Yacht Glue is packed in
    various containers varying from
    1 lb. cans to 252 lb. drums.

    One pound will pay about 25
    feet of the average yacht seam.

    For convenience in doing small
    Jobs and repair work, this glue
    can be obtained in friction top
    cans, 1 lb. to 5 lbs. Larger quan-
    tities are shipped in bulk, packed
    in tin or wooden boxes and in
    metal drums.

    For Paying Decks
    On Commercial Vessels

    For 80 years, Jeffery’s No. 2
    First Quality Marine Ship Glue
    has been used by the merchant
    ships of every port and the
    navies of every nation. It is the
    standard by which all others are

    Flexible, elastic, waterproof
    and tenacious, this famous Ma-
    rine Glue has proved its merit
    through years of all kinds of

    A marine glue may look ex-
    cellent and even prove good with
    a simple test. Even an extended
    test may not show up its weak-
    ness. But when a ship battles
    the elements in a tempestuous
    sea, when is sails through the
    frigidity of the north and blisters
    in the blaze of tropical suns, the
    real merits of a glue are learned.
    This is the test that Jeffery’s No.
    2 First Quality Marine Ship
    Glue has met and continues to
    meet victoriously.

    One pound will pay from
    15 to 20 feet of average
    ship deck seams.

    Less Expensive than

    For an economical and efficient
    Glue, long lasting and low in price,
    we recommend Jeffery’s No. 3
    Special Navy Marine Glue. One
    pound of this grade will pay from
    15 to 20 feet of ship deck seams
    And preserve the decks at less
    actual cost than pitch.

    A large element in the cost of
    paying deck seams is labor. When
    pitch is used the deck has to be
    repayed three or four times to
    equal the life of one application of
    Marine Glue. Thus Marine Glue
    Saves fully 75 per cent of your
    Labor costs – the largest item of
    Expense, which more than compen
    sates the slightly higher cost of
    Marine Glue.

    How to prepare and
    apply to deck seams

    Melt Jeffery’s Marine Glue is a cast iron
    or heavy sheet iron pot which will hold
    the heat and distribute it evenly. Elec-
    trically-heated melting pots are the most
    economical and convenient and are now
    generally used for big jobs. Informa-
    tion on this heater will be sent on re-
    quest. Melt the Marine Glue until it
    becomes entirely fluid, stirring fre-
    quently and do not overheat. When
    properly melted and ready for use,
    Jeffery’s Marine Glue will drip like oil without “string-
    ing out.” Use as promptly as possible in this consistency.
    If you let it cool, the Marine Glue will thicken and
    will not run freely into the seams, thus forming air
    pockets or bubbles. If you heat it too long, the Marine
    Glue will boil and thus become brittle and non-elastic.

    For large work Jeffery’s Marine Glue is received in
    tin or wooden boxes and metal drums from which the
    Marine glue must be removed and broken up into
    small pieces and melted in the quantities desired. Do
    not melt more Marine Glue than is required for
    immediate use. As the Marine Glue is taken from the
    melting pot, additional quantities should be added to
    meet further requirements.

    The melting pot should be cleaned after each run.

    For smaller work, where the Marine Glue is received
    in friction top cans, the cans should first be heated on
    the sides to soften the material, permit expansion and
    allow gas to escape before placing the can directly
    over the heat.

    Preparation of Seams

    If the seams have been previously payed, clean then
    out thoroughly and remove all traces of pitch, putty,
    rosin or other seam composition which may be there.
    Any of the old material that adheres to the sides of the
    seams should be removed with a Rase Knife.

    Caulk the seams carefully, leaving space above the
    caulking for Marine Glue to attach securely to the sides
    of the seams. Caulking irons must be dipped in cold


    water or coal oil as linseed oil or grease prevents the
    glue from adhering to the edges of the planking. Un-
    usual care should be taken to keep the seams absolutely
    dry, as the slightest moisture under the Marine Glue
    will be a source of trouble. Pay your decks on a clear
    day or under cover.

    Paying Deck Seams

    The Marine Glue should be poured into the seams
    from a paying shell or ladle with a spout for pouring a
    fine stream. The spout or ladle should be held about
    one inch above or away from the seams to allow the air
    to escape. Do not draw the ladle on the seams as this
    permits air to be enveloped and prevents its escape be-
    fore the Marine Glue is set. Air ”pockets” result leaving
    the seam hollow and unsound. The workman paying
    the seams should move backward paying from him.

    Many prefer to pay a small quantity into the bottom
    of the seam going over it a second time to complete the
    filling and often this method brings better results.

    Allow the glue to overflow the seams and permit this
    excess to remain on the deck for several days. This
    allows the Marine Glue settle into
    place and fill every small cavity.

    Remove the excess Marine Glue
    with a deck scraper, scraping off
    flush with the deck. For best results,
    scrape diagonally across the seam. The
    scraper will leave an uneven sur-
    face, but this
    roughness will
    smooth out in
    a few days of
    warm weather.

    In hot weather
    applying water
    to deck before
    scraping, often
    aids materially.

    Any old Boat
    can be returned
    to service

    It is literally true that any old
    boat whose frame is good or can
    be made so, may be restored to
    service by the use of Jeffery’s No.
    7 Soft Quality Marine Glue in the
    famous leak-proofing process il-
    llustrated on Page 13.

    Stubborn leaks may be stopped
    by applying a patch of canvas laid
    over the glue and repainted to
    leave no marks.

    Strips can be applied along
    seams, along garboards or around
    stern posts.


    To apply strips, spread a heavy coat of
    Jeffery’s No. 7 Soft Quality Marine Glue
    over the seams or openings which are to be
    covered. Spread the glue on both sides of
    the seam about 1 to 2 inches so that a
    3 or 4 inch strip of fabric can be used.

    Stretch strips tightly over glued surface
    and tack in place. Next apply a warm
    iron passing it over the strip with a slow
    wobbling motion until every inch of the
    fabric has been waterproofed by its satur-
    ation with Marine Glue.

    Care should be taken to use sufficient
    Marine Glue to fill the pores of the cot-
    ton or canvas thoroughly. Do not leave
    an excess on the surface which may soften
    in the sun and “bleed” through the paint.
    The excess glue can be ironed off the sur-
    face before shellac or paint is applied.

    One pound covers three square feet
    of canvas and four square feet of
    muslin or cotton.

    Make your old Boat NEW


    ---- this easy way

    1. Remove all the loose paint and other material and
    have the surface of your old boat free from dirt
    and oil before applying Marine Glue. It is advisable
    to remove the keel and tail pieces, if possible before
    applying glue and canvas. They can be replaced by
    setting them in place in Marine Glue when recan-
    vasing is finished, thus making it leakproof at
    screw holes.

    2. Melt Jeffery’s No. 7 Soft Quality Marine Glue to a
    liquid as instructed on page 8 and spread a heavy
    coat over the sides and bottom of the boat, using
    a wire sink brush for spreading. Use at least one
    pound of Jeffery’s No. 7 Soft Quality Marine to
    every three square feet of surface.

    3. Unbleached muslin, cotton or canvas can then be
    spread over the entire surface. Tack one end of
    the canvas and stretch it over boat lengthwise tack-
    ing again at other end. Next tack along one gun-
    wale and stretch canvas laterally over boat and then
    tack along opposite gunwale. Smooth out snug to
    the surface.

    4. Pass a warm flat iron, not too hot, over the entire
    surface of the canvas with a slow wobbling motion.
    This draws the glue through the pores of the canvas
    and turns it into a one-piece sheathing as tough as
    pigskin securely attached to the boat.

    5. The boat is now ready for painting. Before painting
    it is advisable to apply one or two coats of shellac
    which prevents the Marine Glue from discoloring

    Note – Do not allow too much Marine Glue to remain
    on the surface of the canvas as it may soften in the
    sun and “bleed” out through the paint. Do not use too
    hot an iron as too much heat prevents canvas from
    sticking to the wood.

    Better than Putty
    and more economical!

    Ferdico Seam Filler is an elastic composition for
    Deck and Hull Seams of all types of vessels. Also for
    setting glass, bedding deck lights and sealing acquariums [sic, should be aquariums]
    where a water-tight joint is wanted. For sealing leaks
    between house and deck, around hatches, along gar-
    board strake, centerboard trunks, etc.

    For Seams – Seams should be cleaned out and
    caulked, leaving space above caulking for the filler.
    Apply the filler promptly after caulking, pressing it well
    down into the seam. Be careful to leave no space or
    pockets unfilled.

    After the seams are well filled, the excess should be
    scraped from the surface. No paint or primer is needed
    to treat seam before using Ferdico Seam Filler.

    General Use – Ferdico Seam Filler can be used to
    stop annoying leaks almost anywhere on a boat. It is
    desirable to have seam, cracks or other openings dry
    before applying seam filler but in emergency, Ferdico
    Seam Filler may be used successfully even on wet

    One pound will fill 30
    feet of average seam.

    Liquid Glue
    (C Quality)


    For Aircraft
    and double-plank boat

    Ferdico Aviation Liquid
    Marine Glue is extremely elas-
    tic and tenacious. It was first
    used in building pontoons at the
    U.S. Naval Aircraft factory and
    is now being extensively used in
    commercial service for both air-
    craft construction and double-
    plank boat building.

    For batten seam construction
    it ensures a permanently water-
    tight joint. It does not become
    lifeless as white lead, paint or
    varnish do.

    Aviation Marine Glue pre-
    vents leakage and decay if used
    in all rabbited and mortised
    joints such as chine logs and
    bilge stringers. Coat these parts
    and all other scarf and fastened
    joints with Aviation Glue when
    putting boat frames together.

    How to lay canvas with
    Liquid Marine Glue

    Spread a heavy coat of Jeffery’s Liquid
    Marine Glue C Quality over the entire
    surface to be covered with canvas, at least
    1 gal. per 100 square feet. Be sure that
    the surface is dry before applying the
    Marine Glue. The drier the surface and
    the warmer the day, the better will be the

    If the canvas is to be laid direct to the
    surface, see that all seams are filled level
    and holes filled or plugged. This will prevent sagging
    and punctures.

    If felt is used under canvas, lay the felt as soon as
    surface is coated with Marine Glue. Smooth down with
    roller or by patting the surface to make sure all parts
    are down and taking hold. Best results are obtained
    by next coating the felt in the same way as instructed
    in paragraph one above, before applying canvas.

    2. Lay the canvas (previously shrunk and fitted)
    over the glued surface and stretch tightly in place. Tack
    along the edges with copper tacks. Smooth from center
    to edge with hands or block of wood to remove
    wrinkles and force canvas into the glue. The glue will
    take hold at once and there will be no “jump-back.”

    Some layers fit the canvas to the surface first and then
    roll up the whole piece. In this method you start at
    one end, brush glue on the surface, unroll canvas into
    glue, smooth out and tack as you go.

    3. Be sure that the canvas lies snugly against the sur-
    face at all points to insure perfect adhesion. Use
    plenty of Liquid Marine Glue as the canvas absorbs it.

    4. After the Liquid Marine Glue has thoroughly
    dried, paint the canvas. A coat of shellac before
    painting is now necessary.

    5. In cold weather the Liquid Marine Glue will
    spread more easily if warmed by setting can in hot
    water before using.


    Double-Plank Construction

    1. Spread a heavy coat of Liquid Marine Glue over
    the planking, using about 1 gal. per 100 sq. ft.

    2. Lay the fabric snugly in place, stretching care-
    fully and fasten with copper tacks to hold fabric in

    3. Apply another coat of Liquid Glue over the
    fabric as the outer “skin’ or planking is built in place.

    Liquid Marine Glue, with or without cotton or
    linen, is much superior to white lead between the
    double planking of yachts, motor boats and hydroplanes.

    the highest honors in every test in laboratory or in
    actual usage on the high seas.

    Joints stronger than solid

    For making hollow spars,
    joining wood laminations, build-
    ing plywood of veneer, making
    model boats or making wood
    joints in general, use Stanzall

    • a modern waterproof glue

    for marine, factory and house-
    hold use.

    A joint or spar constructed
    with Stanzall will be found to
    be much stronger than solid
    wood of similar dimensions.

    How go use it – Add 5 parts
    (by weight) of Stanzall to nine
    parts (by weight) of water,
    and mix – stirring vigorously
    for 5 minutes. For small jobs
    use an egg beater; for comer-
    cial work use a d power agitator.
    Set aside for 15 minutes, then
    stir slightly until the mixture
    is smooth. The glue is then
    ready for use. Leave joints in
    clamps or under pressure for
    several hours after glue has
    been applied. Mix only enough
    Stanzall for immediate use.
    Crockery, glass or enamel –
    lined receptacle should be used.

    Special Directions

    For Filing Very Narrow Seams

    We recommend that you use our Jeffery’s No. 1
    Black Extra Quality Marine Yacht Glue. If the seams
    are too narrow to run in the hot glue, heat the glue
    until is the consistency of putty, then greasing the
    hands, mould into a long string the size of coarse twine
    and force into the seams with thumb or putty knife
    until they are full. After this is done, draw a warm
    iron or poker slowly along each seam, thereby sealing it.
    Bear in mind marine glue will not stick to wet or oily
    wood. Surfaces must be dry and clean to obtain satis-
    factory results.

    For Batten Seam Construction
    On ‘Ferdice’ 9 foot Speedsters and other Outboard
    Motor Boats, use Ferdico Aviation Liquid Marine Glue.

    Repairs on Old Boats
    For repairing old canvas covered boats where either
    the paint or canvas is cracked, we recommend that all
    the canvas and the loose paint be removed down to the
    bare wood. Tear strips of cotton cloth about one and
    one half inches wide. Paint seams and surface on both
    sides of seams slightly wider than strips of cloth with
    Jeffery’s No. 7 Soft Quality Marine Glue, using a stiff
    wire brush. Apply hot, but do not allow it to boil.
    Lay on the cotton strips and iron with a warm flat iron.
    Allow to set about 48 hours, then apply a
    heavy coat of shellac and paint desired color, and the
    patched places will not show,

    Repairing a Tear in a Canvas Covered
    Boat or Canoe
    Use our Jeffery’s Special Marine Canoe Glue. Melt
    Glue to the consistency of paint. Turn back edges of
    cut and paint glue on the wood about an inch back all
    around the cut. After laying canvas back over glue,
    iron with a warm flat iron, metal object or stone. If
    edges are badly frayed or far apart, or if it is a bad
    tear, paint on another coat of glue and kay over this
    a piece of cotton or silk about an inch larger than the
    tear all around and iron again with a warm iron. Allow
    to set about forty-eight hours. After this is done give
    a heavy coat of shellac and paint desired color.
