Helpful Tips

  • 1

    Start with clean, dry wood surfaces.

  • 2

    Apply RapidFuse adhesive to one surface only – not both sides.

  • 3

    Don't use too much - only a small amount of RapidFuse is needed.

  • 4

    Make sure the joints fit tightly together. If you can't make the surfaces touch by clamping, you won't be able to get a great bond.

  • 5

    A good rule of thumb to follow when working with RapidFuse is if it's shiny, then it's still wet. If RapidFuse doesn't cure in 30 minutes then it's likely you over-applied. Simply use a dry paper towel to remove the excess and it will cure properly.

    RapidFuse cures in 30 minutes. After 30 minutes of cure time, you can plane it, sand it or stain it. Go ahead. Really. Don’t wait overnight. After 30 minutes it's ready.

Frequently Asked Questions

Just enough to cover the area you intend to bond with a thin coat of adhesive. If it is a wide area you will be bonding, apply the glue in an “S” pattern to apply enough glue to cover the bonding area when squeezed together. When you clamp the pieces together, you will need to wipe away any excess that squeezes out with a paper towel.

RapidFuse is repositionable for up to 3 minutes. You can pull your pieces apart and realign them for a perfect fit for up to 3 minutes and still get a full strength cured bond. When bonding other materials to wood, like metal, plastic or glass, your reposition time will be less and can range depending on how much adhesive you apply. Don’t apply pressure until you have your pieces lined up perfectly.

RapidFuse has an open time of 40 minutes – when it is applied in a bead and not spread or touched by both substrates. When you have a big project to complete where 3 minutes of reposition time is not long enough, apply adhesive to one side without spreading to give yourself more time to work. As soon as you use anything to spread the glue or touch both materials together to begin the squeeze out process you will only have 3 minutes of reposition time left to work.

You can clamp most projects for just 5 minutes. For the maximum strength bond achievable, clamp for the full 30 minutes.

Yes. RapidFuse is sandable, stainable and paintable. If you have excess cured adhesive on your project, you can scrape or sand it away. And you can stain or paint the cured adhesive that remains.

Use Acetone nail polish remover to get cured RapidFuse off your skin. Make sure it is Acetone nail polish remover. The non-acetone stuff won’t work. Wash your hands first to remove any un-cured adhesive with soap and water. Then wipe with an acetone soaked cotton pad. Do not try to pull or peel RapidFuse off.
