Default New from Gorilla Glue -- Clear!

I saw an ad for it, but hasn't shown up locally so I ordered via Amazon. One of the non-porous surfaces to be joined must be moistened:

In 2006 I had to rebuild one of the gates which gives access to the backyard. At the time I bought into the Gorilla Glue b.s. (or should it be ape s.?) and used it to assemble the gate frame. In 2008 I rebuilt the other gate using water-resistant Titebond. In 2012 the glued joints of the first gate started to come apart, so I built a new frame using water-resistant Titebond.

I have heard similar stories about Gorilla Glue failure but somebody also tries to blame it on user error. Whatever the reason is, the second gate will turn 9 years old in June and is still holding strong. I will never again use any of those monkey products, and I share my bad experience with anyone who will listen. Use it at your own risk!

Titebond i believe, is mostly wood-working products. I am testing the product for electronics. It's thick and gap-filling.

You did not mention that in your first post. What are you trying to glue together?

Please let us know how it goes, how it handles and sticks.

I recently found the only CA glue that has ever worked for me. Krazy glue Max Bond gel. It actually works. Gorilla sells a CA glue that is clear and in a bottle like you picture, but your glue seems to be something new.

It really does dry clear. I would say that it is a bit more elastic than I had anticipated, less so than RTV.

Using it to "adhere" a pair of meters onto my "Engineer's Amplifier".

If the same as there yellow glue it expands and hardens into a hard foam. Don't think it's what you want. Gorilla also makes a clear crazy glue that dosnt expand. Might be a better option. I know it sticks, my wife spilled a little on a counter top and its still there a year later.

The volume seems to be the same a few weeks later, did not "foam".

BTW FWIW: Liquid Nails now comes in clear.

Have not tried it. The tan-ugly stuff has been pretty useful for odd joints which will not show. It comes toothpaste-size now, not just caulk-gun cartridges.

Thanks for the update. I've looked at this and the Gorilla super glue. Would be interesting to use these.
