Furniture and Wood Repair
Precision Shot offers two great products to assist in your furniture repairs. Many furniture repairs consist of wood joints loosening, cracking, or splintering over time.
Precision Shot Polyurethane Glue (# APUG) and Wood Glue (# ACG) have many applications. This article will explain the differences in the two materials and their recommended uses.
APUG is a liquid polyurethane adhesive which has the consistency of tree sap. It is also very sticky/tacky, much like tree sap! It will not come out of clothing and is very difficult to cleanup once applied. Gloves and eye protection are recommended when handling our products. It is a fantastic product, just be careful when handling. The great thing about APUG is that it expands as it cures. It fills gaps and turns to a foamy appearance. Don’t let the foamy appearance fool you! It gets very tough! APUG works great for filling joint gaps, wood cracks/checks, works well both indoor and outdoor, and will stiffen up loose joints. It cures to a foamy, light yellow/amber color in 24 hours at room temperature. Higher humidity will decrease the curing time.
The ACG, wood/carpenter’s glue, can also be used both indoor and outdoor. It is more forgiving to use than APUG since it can be cleaned with water before it cures. We recommend using this material when surfaces need to be kept close together as it will not expand while curing. Great for fixing splintered edges of wood. Since there is no expansion while curing, ACG can be more aesthetically pleasing for those more delicate repairs. Cures to a light tan, somewhat translucent color in 24hrs at room temperature.
