Detailed Description

Heat Lock Iron-On Veneer Glue - Gallon

Heat Lock Veneer Glue is a water-based, PVA adhesive that enables you to veneer projects without clamps, vacuum presses or toxic glues. Its low melting point is easily achieved with a household iron (around wool setting on ours). Just apply the glue to the back of the veneer and the top of the substrate, let it dry (about 20 minutes) and iron the pieces together. The glue will temporarily melt and quickly re-tack, just like iron-on edge banding. As with edge banding, use a J-roller (#167208) or block of wood to smooth out and press the veneer down until the glue cools and grabs.

Heat Lock dries rigid to minimize creep, so veneer tape joints and bookmatches are no problem. Heat Lock will work with paper-backed and plain veneers over a variety of surfaces including solid wood, plywood, particle board and MDF. You can even use it to veneer curved surfaces like bowfront tables.

Even though Heat Lock has a low melting point, we recommend placing a thin towel between the hot iron and the veneer to prevent scorching. Also, we highly recommend practicing on some scrap before tackling a finished project. Use veneer softener (#165103) to reduce curling. Coverage is approximately 40 square feet per pint or 320 square feet per gallon.
