In a new Roofing Road Trips podcast, Heidi J. Ellsworth joins Darci Kunard from Franklin International and the Titebond brand to talk about one of Titebond’s foundational products, Titebond Glue.
We have all understood innately the importance of glue since the fateful day in preschool when we were first introduced to the product. Today, we discuss the many important applications for glues, especially glues that provide a strong initial tack and fast speed of set.
"In the construction trades, contractors need those construction adhesives and they need different types, whether it's solvent based, a VOC compliant solvent, or even water based. So we make the gamut of products that you can find out there,” says Darci. “That's really where our base is, is that professional who seeks out our products.”
Titebond is one of the thickest, fastest-drying water-based glue available and can be used with porous and semi-porous materials. It is ideal for wood, pottery, ceramic, stone, and glass, which covers all parts of a building’s exterior.
“What's great about our Titebond wood glues, they can be used on other substances.,” says Darci. “You know, people have glue for a reason-- because glue works. It sticks stuff together... [Titebond] has great adhesive strength behind it. And the reason we use these high-quality products is because we want to stand behind our work.”
When you think about the roof and there's always going to be a need for some sealants, some caulking, or some glue up on the roof. As you make repairs, you want a product in your toolbelt or truck that you know can help you quickly get the job done.
“You want to be able to point and say, "This is the product that we know works in this situation" and have a company that has almost a hundred years' worth of data behind their products as well,” says Darci. “Roofers never stop. So we're working to make sure our products are the same.”
Listen to the podcast for more information on Titebond glues and how this product can help roofers incorporate additional exterior repairs along with roofing.
