LAS VEGAS - Franklin International’s new Titebond Translucent Wood Glue – making its debut at AWFS® Fair 2011 – offers all the valued characteristics of Titebond Original Wood Glue, along with the ability to makes glue lines virtually invisible.

Woodworkers won’t be able to see what makes Franklin International’s newest Titebond wood glue so unique. And that’s precisely why they will like it.

The new Titebond Translucent Wood Glue – making its debut at booth 2518 during AWFS® Fair 2011 – makes glue lines virtually invisible. Glue lines quickly fade as they dry, helping amateur and expert woodworkers alike achieve professional-looking results. The clear glue lines make Titebond Translucent ideal for use in general interior woodworking, wooden craft projects and furniture or other home repairs.

Although the glue lines are transparent, other advantages of using Titebond Translucent Wood Glue are readily apparent: excellent bond strength, four-to-six-minute working time and short clamp time. Woodworkers can easily wipe excess glue off the wood and work area with water when wet – and sand cured glue before staining or painting the wood to attain a perfect finished look. Once cured, Titebond Translucent offers higher heat resistance than typical PVA glues for more durable bonds over time. And, because the glue is non-toxic, it’s a safe glue to use when introducing children to woodworking.

“Our philosophy is to listen to our customers and provide products that truly meet their needs,” said Craig Stone, Franklin’s director of marketing. “And that is the story behind Titebond Translucent. In a survey, a group of woodworking students indicated that they wanted invisible glue lines. We saw the value of that characteristic for both new and expert woodworkers and developed Titebond Translucent Wood Glue for them.”

Titebond Translucent Wood Glue is available in eight- and 16-ounce bottles through woodworking stores as well as major hardware stores and builder supply stores. For more information, woodworkers and carpenters can visit
