Oak and Teak glue, the all wood glue, is a two part epoxy resin made largely from the resins of wood itself. That is why it can dissolve the natural oils of oily hardwoods, and why it bonds all oily hardwoods such as Teak, Cocobolo and Ebony. Epoxy glues made from petrochemicals cannot do this. Oak and Teak Epoxy Wood Glue will of course bond all non oily hardwoods, that lesser epoxies are also capable of gluing. Oak and Teak Epoxy Wood Glue is unaffected by the natural acids common to many woods, which is why it bonds Oak so readily.
It will also (with proper chemical surface preparation) glue a wide variety of metals, glass, rubber and plastic materials. The cured adhesive is completely waterproof and weatherproof.
Our Epoxy Cleanup Solvent will dissolve and clean up excess Oak and Teak Epoxy Glue before it has gelled. Once cured, there is no clean-up solvent.
Oak and Teak epoxy glue uses Smith and Co’s new Dual Synergistic Catalyst™, a breakthrough in the control of epoxy resin curing. This new technology not only gives a long working time (without smoking like other brands), but also cures twice as fast as older-technology products.
Primary Benefits Of Oak And Teak Epoxy Wood Glue
- Great for gluing particularly resinous woods which are notoriously hard to bond to reliably
- The resin is as flexible as wood once set
- 1 to 1 mix ratio by volume and is forgiving of minor mix disparities. If mixing by weight use 10 parts A to 12 parts B by weight.
- 2-hour pot life at 21°C / 70°F, full cure in 24 hrs
- Workable and curable below freezing (-2 °C / 28°F, 8 days cure)
- Extremely tough
- Usable over a very wide temperature range
I have spent the last 40+ years working with a large variety of adhesives on a large variety of materials. This is truly the most remarkably versatile adhesive that I think I have ever used. I believe it would rather better be named as ‘Hyper Glue’ or some other such adjective. If you ever make or repair stuff, do try this, you will find it an invaluable asset in your toolbox. It is not a fast set, and you do have to mix it, but the bonds are both waterproof and permanent to so many materials.
All epoxy resins can cause skin sensitisation. Wear suitable protective equipment.

After my lovely dining chair broke I decided to do my own repair rather than trust the job to another after some less than prefect previous experiences. The Oak and Teak epoxy was very easy to use and worked perfectly. My only regret was that I had no other jobs to do as I used so little of the product and have almost full tubes left. Great specialist product and quickly delivered.
This product is fantastic. To try the product out I made a simple biscuit joint - much quicker than mortice and tenon - followed the instructions carefully and left the joint to set for 24 hours. I found it impossible to snap the joint by hand -it is absolutely solid. I have just ordered a larger quantity of the epoxy and am looking forward to assembling 17 oak cabinet doors. Fantastic product - follow the instructions and you will not be disappointed!
On a bus restoration project, I needed to plug up some oversized bolt holes, in the ash framework, and re-drill them. With another adhesive, I found that the remaining thin shell of the ash plug sometimes broke away on re-drilling. I was advised to use epoxy adhesive, and found this to be the solution.
The best oak glue I have found. Saves all that joint preparation (cleaning mortices etc). Any excess cleans off when joints are cleaned. Highly recommended
First class service coupled with excellent product.received sweeties to have while waiting for glue to mix and disposable glove , so no messy fingers nice touch 🙂
