    Default Heat resistant wood glue?

    If you search for 'heat resistant wood glue' online you get a hit from Franklin International that says this;

    Super Titebond Wood Glue is a high-quality, professional woodworking glue that offers superior sandability and solvent-resistance. It develops a bond stronger than wood and provides a longer working time than traditional aliphatic resin glues. Super Titebond resists stress imposed by heat and moisture during the production of panels, squares and other wood parts. This makes it the ideal choice for edge and face gluing as well as other woodworking operations.

    But when you go to Titebonds own website 'Supe Titebond' is not there.

    I need to laminate some small (2" x 2") beams that will run close to a wood stove. Not close enough to scorch the wood, but still I'm thinking epoxy is out.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    I am looking for a product in Europe.

    Many thanks,

    Martin.

    Aerodux?Could be a problem if the brown glue lines are objectionable but I can't think of a more durable glue that can relatively easily be found.Araldite 2004 has some heat resistance but isn't generally available.

    How much heat are we talking about?

    I posted this thread in the bilge also, but I' happy to have 2 conversations.

    Aerodux is Resorcinol as I understand. Thanks for the tip John, I didn't know it could be heat resistant.

    I think I would like to plan for 200c / 400F.. the reality I think would be much less, say 100 - 150c / 200 - 300F.

    Mostly convected heat but a little radiated also.

    Seems to me Resorcinol is good for 250 degrees. If your wood is getting that hot you probably have bigger problems than weakened glue...

    Spec reads well

    But once you get above 200 C , pyrolysis starts to be an issue - I've heard of people deliberately charring the outside surface of timber which could be exposed to high temperatures.

    Not knowing the particulars of use being contemplated, I wonder if the heat-resistant silicone sealants like this one:

    https://rutland.com/products/600-f-r...icone-sealant?

    - be of help here? There's several brands I know of, available here in the US. Though not exactly a wood glue as such, these sealants will adhere tenaciously to wood once they've properly cured.

    200C = 392F, a temp well worth staying away from when wood's expected to survive for long.

    Seems like an application that calls for a sheet metal heat shield between the beam and the stove.
