Titebond Cold Press Veneer Glue is a high-quality glue, for large-scale bonding of veneers to flat surfaces using a Vacuum Press or Veneer Press. It is specifically formulated for cold press laminating of wood to solid woods, particleboard, MDF, plywood and other porous materials. Titebond Cold Press offers a moderate speed of set, a translucent glue line and contains none of the harmful or corrosive fumes typical of most contact cements. It also prevents bleed-through on open-grained and unbacked wood veneers.

Titebond Cold Press Veneer Adhesive
I prefer this to hide and hot pot veneer adhesives. Decent working time depending on the temperature and humidity. Need to keep it shaken or the solids will separate. I do a lot of veneering and as long as the formula stays the same, I will keep using it.

This didn't work too well with 2 layer veneer that tends to stay rolled up.
I tried some of this as an experiment and it didn't work. Maybe on something that is already flat.

Does what it's supposed to do.
Other Titebond glues are stronger and less susceptible to loosening from heat or moisture, but they may bleed through porous veneer. I had that experience when I used a different Titebond glue on black limba. Moisture from veneer tape removal can loosen this glue, so I put the piece back in the veneer press to dry completely if the veneer is prone to swelling. On the other hand, squeeze-out is relatively easy to remove. I've used a LOT of this glue.

I build one-off custom cabinets and...
I build one-off custom cabinets and have used this glue on almost all of my bent and flat laminations, either veneer or of multi-layer solid wood. I use foam paint rollers and a paint tray for application. It performs better under vacuum bagging as opposed to clamping in my opinion. My vacuum table is 5'x 10' and I am able to pieces up to 24" tall. It is larger than most but I am able to form large curved pieces and this glue has been great to work with. It has a long open time, making multi-layer 1/8" solid pieces managable. I have found that with the thicker solid wood laminations you need to coat each side of the layers. The resulting bond is extremely strong. And I have never had a problem with delamination in over 10 years. It's ease of use, and great working times make it ideal for almost all veneer and lamintaion projects. As far as the review of the glue seperating... it is a clay filler that is added. I have spoke to the techs at Titebond because I had concerns also when I first started using this product. They assured me and were truthful that the product works just as well after any settling out as it does before.

I thought I would try this instead of regular wood glue to see if I have better luck getting my veneer to lay down on the first try.

tapcon king on Aug 31, 2015
I did some veneering with Titebond II and III and one type of veneer bubbled so it was suggested to try this glue as it has more solids and better adhering for veneer.

Best reliable product for gluing wood veneer.
Phil C on Jun 20, 2017
Apply birds eye on a 3x7 plywood substrate. I’ve used Titebond II on both the substrate and veneer -dries and used an iron to reactivate but that was on a 4x4 table. Don’t have a vacumn or large press. Will this be better/easier than my ironing process which worked great?
vernon l on Apr 18, 2019
can this be used on exterior projects such as a set of skis?
Dik H on Feb 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would not advise using Titebond cold press glue for an exterior project. For Skis, I would use polyurethane glue where the strips to be bent laminated are soaked in water first followed by the application of the polyurethane glue and then clamped into your bending caul.
An exterior grade two part epoxy could also work but Titebond Coldpress glue is mainly intended for interior veneer pressing in furniture construction.
What is average working time with glue?
Mile M on Sep 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would guess that you have about 15 min. I use a plastic tile trowel with about 1/8" notches. I make the ridges cross wise on both the substrate and veneer. For big sheets (more than about two square feet) you need to work fast or have a helper. Also I would highly recommend using paper backed veneer. thin raw veneer can leak through.
can this cure in a vacuum bag?
Dave A on Mar 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely! I use the Titebond Cold Press Adhesive with my vacuum bags for veneering all the time. I actually prefer it over other adhesives for this purpose.
Is this a good product for a difficult cabinet glue up? I'm not using it for veneer. I need something strong that gives me time to clamp and square everything.
Scott P on Mar 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Titebond 111 would be a better choice. Consider breaking the unit into more manageable pieces for glue up. It’s also helpful to do as many practice assemblies as you need to feel comfortable Also Titebond has a very helpful customer service line. I hope that was helpful.
. Good luck.

Can this glue be used to glue cork board to sheathing?
Jim P on Jan 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I have never used this glue with cork board, only with veneer. It works great with veneer.
I am interested in what wood glue you have that has a long open time before set up as I gave a complicated assembly?
George K on Apr 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Sometimes I use Liquid Nails which has a 20 minute set up time. I use Titebond wood glue. If I have a complicated glue up situation I make sure I have everything in order and in place and I glue up in sequence. If necessary I glue up sub-assemblies and then assemble as necessary. That's what I do.
