The Right Glue for Every Repair Job
What broke: A veneer that has separated from its base materials, such as the 30-year-old Formica countertop that came with the house
or the edging to inexpensive cabinet shelves and drawers.
The fix: 3M Hi-Strength 90 spray-on adhesive is heat- and water-resistant, especially important when the laminate is used in the kitchen or bathroom.
How to use it: Apply to both surfaces to be bonded. Let set for 2 to 15 minutes, then press the surfaces together. Apply pressure or a clamp for up to five minutes to increase the strength of the bond.
Sticking points: Although this glue is ideal for reattaching veneers, you shouldn't use it to repair a snapped table leg or any other structural element of a piece of furniture.
Cleanup: To remove excess glue from hands and surfaces, wipe while still wet with a damp cloth or with mineral spirits.
