Wood Glue Clamp Time

Wood Glue Clamp Time

Mark the time you glued up each assembly with chalk to know when it's safe to remove the clamps. You can then reuse those clamps in another glue-up.
For most of our wood glues, we recommend clamping an unstressed joint for thirty minutes to an hour. Stressed joints need to be clamped for 24 hours. We recommend not stressing the new joint for at least 24 hours. For Titebond Polyurethane Glue, we recommend clamping for at least forty-five minutes.
Today, I used some Elmer's Carpenter's wood glue to repair a banjo neck. It has now. I'm wonder if longer clamp times make for better joints.
Surprisingly, the instructions on my Titebond III Ultimate wood glue say. . With few exceptions they all achieve 80 – 100% strength in that time.
The clamp time for PVA yellow and white and Type II PVA is 30-60 minutes with dry wood, glue and ambient temperature at 70-75 degrees .
