Adhesives: Weldwood waterproof
Scott Gibson, Contributing Editor
Protective clothing, gloves and facial protection are recommended by the manufacturer for mixing and applying the glue. Resorcinol glue has a long working life (four hours at 70 degrees F.) and a long open time (30 minutes at the same temperature). It takes between 8 and 10 hours to set. One downside is the color?cured glue is purple. In November 2004, enough catalyst and resin to make a quart of glue was available for less than $20.
