Product Description

Original Gorilla Glue is the original brown Gorilla Glue, which offers an incredibly strong and versatile adhesive. Original Gorilla Glue can bond to virtually any surface; wood, stone, metal, ceramic, foam, glass, and more, which makes it a one-stop solution to any repair or building need. It's 100% waterproof quality makes it the ideal adhesive to use for outdoor work, where it is designed to withstand the elements at temperatures ranging from -40°F to 200°F. Original Gorilla Glue is easy to use and is great for DIY projects at home, school, or at the office. Original Gorilla Glue is designed with a special expanding formula, which forms an incredibly strong and durable bond between surfaces.

Original Gorilla Glue provides a heavy-duty, long term hold, and is an excellent choice for both indoor and outdoor projects. Original Gorilla Glue dries in a tan color and can be painted using oil-based paint or spray paint and once sanded will accept acrylic or latex paint. This adhesive can be stained after it has been thoroughly sanded. Original Gorilla Glue's water activated polyurethane formula expands 3 times into materials when cured to form a powerful bond between most surfaces.


*Please use caution handling glue. Avoid contact with skin.*

All surfaces must be clean and tight-fitting. Original Gorilla Glue will stain clothes.

  1. Dampen
    For non-porous surfaces only (i.e. metal, glass, plastics), lightly dampen one surface with water using a cloth or spray bottle. Do not add water to bottle.
  2. Glue
    Sparingly apply Original Gorilla Glue to surfaces. Best at room temperature.
  3. Clamp
    Clamp objects together for 2 hours. Full cure in 24 hrs. You can use heavy objects to achieve clamping pressure.

Storage Tips

After each use, wipe nozzle clean with a dry cloth and tightly replace the lid. Store in a cool, dry place out of reach of children and animals. Cured glue can be removed from work surface with chisel, scraper or sandpaper. Country of Origin: United States.

* Multiple cases may be shipped per package in order to minimize the charge for shipping.

Question & Answers

User Reviews

Made in the USA
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
natural rubber
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
zinc oxide
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
1 mil = 1/1000 of an inch
Examples: 1/16 inch = 62.5 mils; 1/32 inch = 31.25 mils
The cut level indicates how many grams of cutting load a glove can withstand from a sharp blade before being penetrated.
Lower gauge gloves are heavier - have thicker construction, fewer stiches knitted per inch and offer less dexterity.
Higher gauge gloves are lighter - have thinner/finer construction, more stitches knitted per inch and offer more dexterity.
Gloves offered typically runs from 7 to 18 (12 and 13 are in the middle of the scale).
