The Best Glue for Particle Board (2020)

Last updated on July 31, 2020

If you need to put two pieces of particle board in your project the need for the best glue for it is essential. We’ve picked the best glue for particle board currently available (2020).

Our top choice: Gorilla Wood Glue

Gluing pieces of particle board is actually an easy process and most wood adhesives work well enough. In fact, the requirements for it are even lower than gluing wood boards. Particle board is not waterproof so you’re not looking for that in a glue either. For this reason, most glues will work. Still, which one is the best?

One important thing in mind is the distinction between gluing boards face to face (which is usually melamine) and edge to face. The edges of the particle board are very porous so the glue has to deal with that.

Also, it is important for the adhesive to be clear (not colored) to avoid issues.

We’ve laid down our entire timeline of choosing glues for particle board so you can see our top choices. But in the end, it has come down to three options – Gorilla, Titebond, or Carpenter’s glue. And since all of these options are good enough, it comes down to the pricing.

Here we go. Please note that we get paid for purchases made through our links that are marked #ad (no expense to you.)

We’ve chosen this because it’s strong on porous materials, it’s non toxic, and resists mold as a bonus. However, it’s on this list only because it’s glue other than the popular Gorilla or Titebond options.

Melamine Glue
