Titebond® III Ultimate Wood Glue

A waterproof wood glue that's ideal for both exterior and interior woodworking!
Item #
98% of 100

Titebond III Ultimate Wood Glue is an easy-to-use, one-part waterproof wood glue. The formula meets criteria for the ANSI/HPVA Type I water-resistance specification and offers superior bond strength, a longer open assembly time and lower minimum application temperature. It is non-toxic, non-foaming, solvent-free and cleans up with water. It provides strong initial tack, sands easily without softening and is FDA approved for indirect food contact (such as for cutting boards). Use on both interior and exterior projects.

  • Fast curing and cleans up with water when still wet
  • Less mess—does not foam
  • Easier to clean up and less expensive than polyurethane glues
  • Eight minutes of open assembly time for complicated glueups
  • Application temperature as low as 47°F

Fond of Titebond
I've only tried a few different glues and really have great results with Titebond III. I use it to build the structural assembly of telescope optics- specifically, Newtonian telescope optics. I do use this glue with trim head screws for peace of mind because my joinery is very basic in box construction. Never have had problems with this glue.

My Favorite Wood Glue
I use Titebond III for nearly all woodworking, other than pen turning. Rather than keeping many wood glues around, I use Titebond III for everything. It is stronger than any other wood glue and it is waterproof. It has a long open/working time, but reaches the tack point quickly enough. Even though Titebond III costs more than other wood glues, it is still cheaper than keeping many different glues in the shop, only to go bad.

Is is foodsafe?
bill s on Sep 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Straight from the label it is rated food safe for indirect contact.
Does this product have a shelf life??
Tedthered on Jul 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I buy a gallon at a time and date the bottle. I do pour glue into a Glue-bot to make applying the glue easier. and shake the gallon jug about 30 seconds before putting it away. If the glue starts to get a little thick or a shorter setup time, I found shaking the glue bottle vigorously for about 5 minutes will restore the shelf life some. I have had glue bottles longer than a year and not had problems.
glue for outdoor wood projects ?
A shopper on May 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have used this for several outdoor projects over the past couple of months and so far it is holding up great. Titebond III is the glue I use for outdoor projects.
What glue should I use to adhere the classic wooden drawer glides to my dresser drawers?
Bonnie C on May 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The titebond glue is an excellent choice, it is waterproof and has fairly good grab. I would fasten with clamps or screws to get the best bond. All done well, the glue will not separate, the wood will give it up first. Good luck. Jim
What is the best way to keep glue from getting hard in the bottle?
Karl H on Jan 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: To restore Titebond III, you should shake the bottle vigorously for about 5 minutes to remix the contents. I normally shake my gallon jug for about 30 seconds after I refill my glue-bot each time.
Is Titebond III formaldehyde free?
Michael L on Mar 20, 2020
BEST ANSWER: There is no indication that formaldehyde is found in this glue. I use it a great deal on surfaces that contact food with no problems.
Will this glue work to hold the wooden planks in a whiskey barrel table? I can't glue the surfaces of each plank, but can ooze glue between them. Purpose is to add stability to barrel used for table that has been damaged/loosened by movers.
Jerry on Jun 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would use Gorilla Glue because it expands as it dries, thus filling the glued space. Be ready to wipe oozing or swelled glue with a wet rag to prevent unwanted buildup.
I have only ever used Titebond in a clamping situation, so don’t know how it would work in this situation. But I doubt it will be successful.
Does it dry clear? Does it accept paint well?
Craig W on Dec 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If you want a clearer glue, you should use a white glue similar to Titebond I. The Titebond III does dry a light brownish color. But if you have 2 properly prepared edges to be glued you won't have any to color to show. Titebond I, Titebond II, or Titebond III are stainable and paintable.
I need to glue a veneer top to a fiberglass/composite guitar with a vacuum bag. Will this glue work? Thanks.
Moon Dog on Nov 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Titebond is really good for wood to wood joints, but specifically excludes non porous surfaces like fiberglass. Polyurethane glues however bond well to a variety of materials.
Any experience with this type III glue with teak? I want to use it to glue up a table top to be used on the exterior of my boat. Do you need to wipe the joints with acetone before applying the glue?
hunert on Feb 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Just used it on a teak desk. It's holding well. It is not a waterproof glue, however. If it is a sea going vessel, I might choose another method, or give it plenty of time to cure before being fairly liberal with a sealer such as a spar polyurethane.
Can this glue be used on exterior projects that were painted? does it hold up well on painted projects?
Peter M on Aug 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Titebond III is exceptional for exterior wood work. It is waterproof up to and excluding the point of full submersion. A painted surface should better protect and prolong the glue joint's strength and longevity. But be aware, that the mating surfaces must be prepared properly for full adhesion. There should be NO paint, excess dust or debris in the glue joint. i.e. It will not bond two painted surfaces.
Does Titebond III work well on oily African woods?
Tom N on Mar 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Can't help on this one.
Is the glue stainable?
Galen H on Jul 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not to my knowledge. Try some on a piece of scrap.
I am gluing veneer together for salad fork and spoon. These will be hand washed. Will Titebond III hold up or is there something else I should use?
Meg O on Jan 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Tightbond II is the one for outdoor use and would most likely be the best choice in that line. If you are not soaking the project I don't see a problem. If so I would look to a marine 2 part glue or some other marine solution to be sure.
