at a fair in Oregon in the summer and we were trying to glue wood - it
was extremely dry wood and wasn't holding very well at all. I
experimented a bit and found that if I primed the dry surfaces with
water the bond was extremely fast and unbelievably tight. You
don't want the surface dripping wet but damp is good. Wipe off
any excess with a cloth. You will use considerably less glue as
well. I have since used this with leather, terra cotta and
neoprene - other very dry materials. It would work well with
plaster - for molds in dental labs. One of the things that was
happening was that without being primed most of the glue was soaking
in and nothing left on the surface to bond. Check out our

What's been done to make Miracle Glue different than Super Glue or Krazy Glue is that the solvents have been distilled out. So, as Miracle Glue is pure it is much stronger and there are no solvents to make it discolor and go brittle. It dries clear and flexible. But the real benefit is that you get to use it all. It is stronger than Superglue and has a much longer shelf life! Store it in the fridge and
you'll get a very good shelf life out of it. Most customers keep it for 3 years. Use it at room temperature for best results.
