92% of 100
Genuine hide glue that's ready to use in liquid form without mixing, heating or odor. Titebond Liquid Hide Glue is the first hide glue to be offered in a liquid, ready-to-use form. It requires no mixing, heating or stirring. Professional woodworkers use Titebond Liquid Hide for its long assembly time, exceptional strength and unique crackling effect on wood. Titebond Liquid Hide provides superior creep-resistance, offers excellent sandability and is unaffected by finishes. Its sensitivity to moisture allows for easy disassembly of parts, a critical benefit in antique restoration or the repair of musical instruments.

Two flavors of "dark" glue
And, I use both the Liquid Hide when I need more drying time and the "standard" TightBond II dark when I need/want faster drying.

BOTH work great. Buy both and quit the frustration of not enough clamping time or way too long drying time.

I highly recommend the Hyde glue when doing furniture repair or a project. Love the extra working time that it affords you.

Woodworking Experience:
chair repair
Chinese chairs (made in 40's or 50's) were falling apart. The joinery was complicated so I needed a glue with a long open time. This fit the bill, plus the fact that the glue is reversible. I like the way it spreads too. If it is long-lasting, who knows?

Great product. Beats making up small batches in a glue pot
Worked like a charm. I was repairing an old organ. Was originally put together using hide glue. I wanted to make all the repairs reversable

Woodworking Experience:
Great crackle effect
Never used it before. Did not use it as a glue. I used it as a crackle effect with milk paint. It dries clear. Works great.

Woodworking Experience:
Great alternative to PVA glue
Longer open time, reversible, and dries hard so you don't get creep at the joint after a few years.

Refelted a Gerstner chest. Worked great and If I want to remove later will be able to just like the original felt.

Steve G on Mar 2, 2017
Needed slower setting glue for assembly of intricate assemblies! Allows for much needed time in the gluing process without sacrificing strength of joints! Not good for outside applications though!

I make colonial and Federal era reproduction furniture as a hobby. Hide glue is what was used traditionally, however this liquid hide glue eliminates the heated glue pot.

Read an article that stated this was a better glue for woodworking and the new liquid form is more convenient than melting down chips.

I have used Titebond wood glues for many years and know I can rely on them. When I saw that I could get Titebond hide glue, there was no question in my mind about the quality of the product. The choice was easy.
JOHN B on Jul 7, 2015
Ran out and needed more. A great product, can be used at any time with no meed for a hot pot and planning ahead.

I want to make my own wood filler. Have lots of fine sawdust. Will hide glue take stain?
Dallas R on Feb 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes unlike more modern glues you can stain right over the top without a noticeable color difference I bought an unfinished chair and stained it the chair had a container of yellow wood glue spilled on it when I stained the chair the puddle was a dark patch on the chair hide glue won't do that
Liquid Hide glue and veneer with hot hide glue I have been told to coat both sides of the veneer to prevent curling should I do the same with liquid hide glue?
Samuel S on Feb 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Any water based product (including this) will curl veneer (or warp thin wood in general). Coating both sides with PVA (wood glue) will ruin the finish. Neither hot nor liquid hide glue have that problem, so gluing both faces works well if it doesn't adhere to your clamping setup, but since hide glued are (now) niche, low volume products, they are rather expensive. Alternatively you can mist the nonglued side (as you would for PVA), but you should check it occasionally since this will dry faster than the glue and then cup (if the backing isn't firmly and uniformly holding the veneer). Thin, especially solid, wood should be veneered on both sides or it.will warp (also for PVA-- water does this). Plywood is more stable.
Liquid hide glue is chemically just hide glue + an additive (like urea, though Titebond uses a more toxic amine to give the product shelf life since microbes will happily consume protein glue and urea is to them just a nitrogen fertilizer) that lowers the gel ("freezing") point, in the same way that salt melts ice.
what is the strongest glue to use in wood projects, the Titebond Liquid hide sounds promising. I have used other Titebond glues and they do not hold permanently like I want.?
John D on Apr 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Polyvinyl Acetate glues have come to the point to create stronger bonds that the wood itself, So definitively could be the clamping method or to mush gap the the joint, or no joint at all.
P.S. Titebond II and III sould be enough, as they are water resistant and water proof.
Can this glue be used on guitar bridge repair
can this glue be used on guitar bridges ?
John M on Jun 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Joseph E is correct. This is a liquid hide glue. Hide glue normally requires heat to allow it to flow and be applied. Hide glue is what was used when they started making violins, guitars, & furniture. It had the advantage that if something was mis-positioned or just got loose the joint could be taken apart and glued. That is one of the big reasons antique furniture and instruments are still around. The glue joints can be repaired. If a repair is need the joint can be opened up using heat or small amount of warm water. Water must be used very sparingly and a pretest must be done to ensure other parts will not be damaged by the water.
shelf life?
peter v on Jul 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Peter - I can't give you a definitive shelf life, but I've had a bottle of it for a couple of years and it still seems to work just fine.I do store it in my house rather than my garage shop, and I'm sure that contributes to its longevity - John B.
What is open time re; liquid hide glue?
Kobb. on May 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Titebond liquid hide glue is about 10 minutes. You may be able to stretch that depending on the temp & humidity.
DONALD M on Feb 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Would probably be OK, as you need time to move items around to properly set, and allow time to dry. This glue is slow drying.
