I've seen Resorcinol available at hardware stores like ACE, sold for marine applications. Would this type work? What about the polyurethanes(sp?) like Gorilla glue? -----Original Message----- From: Albert J.

An other adhesive used is Monodiisocyanurate (MDI). When I worked for Trus Joist MacMillan and field repairs were made with an adhesive, we typically used a PRF. One that we used in repairs, and I used in a Master's thesis was Penacolite, manufactured by Indspec Chemical Corporation located in Pittsburgh PA. It's a waterproof two part adhesive manufactured in accordance with ASTM D 2559. Indspec manufactures a couple types of PRF, but I used resorcinol phenol formaldehyde polymer liquid resin G-1149-A and powdered paraformaldehyde hardener G-1131-B. The mixing is easy and it can be applied with a brush or roller. AITC A190.1-1992 specifies a minimum shear strength of 1075 psi and a minimum of 80% wood failure for adhesives used in the manufacture of Glulam for example, and PRF is typically used. I was bonding a pultruded carbon fiber plate (CFRP) to LVL and in testing of block specimens got an average shear stress of 945 psi. The adhesive generally performs well in wood repairs, but requires a minimum clamping pressure when curing, which is sometimes difficult to achieve, given field conditions. Sorry I don't have an address for the company but they be on the web.
