    Great work! Very nice to see the summarised charts at the end. An idea would be to help compare adhesion across different materials would be to calculate the force per area, eg 400lbs on a 2"*4" on wood would be 50lb/sqin and repeat for other materials, plastic 50lbs on a 1.25sqin area being 40lb/sqin showing it has better adhesion on wood

    I thank you for opening my eyes, I've always went for liquid nails out of habit, but will now buy loctite

    Im not completely sure but I think the PLX 3 and PLX 8 cure better if you spray water on it to cure it

    Watching the second test I noticed the bolt and said "it'd be crazy if the bolt pulled through the wood instead of the glue breaking," and yeah.

    Another EPIC review. Thanks for making hundreds of thousand’s of projects better, because of your thorough evaluation.

    To be noted; I was told not all the formulations are the same in every area due to regulations. Here in IL they changed liquid nails and now it seems to suck, ten minutes away in Wisconsin they have the real deal. Wonder if you knew of this, considered it or might be able to get the various formulas from the same manufacture?

    PL is what real contractors use. It cost more but as you see it's worth it.

    You should drill your holes in the test pieces further from the edge so you don't get pull through failures. Either that or fashion a new jig that clamps down onto the piece to better distribute the load.

    Pl 8x is about $3 more a tube. If your buying a decent number of tubes it can add up. Plus, if your relying on a glue to have that much more holding power, maybe that’s a mistake. Glues should HELP mechanical fasteners like screws, not replace them.

    If 3x and 8x were people, they'd be the type to bring a missile barrage on a deer hunt.

    Would love to see these on steel to see the true glue strength alongside wood

  • Cod's head
    Cod's head   1 weeks ago don't know if you sell this adhesive in the USA, its called sticks like shit, and it really does stick like shit to a nappy aka diaper to Americans. I think this will make your strongest adhesive preform like chewing gum in comparison.Maybe you could order a tube and see who wins the heavy weight champion of adhesives. £ to $ $9.70 a tube..

    Liquid Nails is CRAP!!!!!😡💩👎 That comes from years of experience with that garbage. It has always been a big frustrating disappointment, and I steer clear from that junk at all expense.👉😫

    Can you compare how actual nails would compare and PVC glue (fit for purpose product) as a control maybe as the adhesives are used as an alternative where nails and PVC glue cant be used???

    Would have been nice to see how it glues metals. The wood broke before the glue on some of these tests.

    I am somewhat disappointed. I was thinking this is going to be the cosmetic liquid nail (nail repair thingy that women use), vs Locktite for screws. That Locktite price is more like liquid gold price.

    I used liquid nail on installing a mirror and it started to turn black and called a local mirror company and they told me I should never use that stuff for mirrors an told me what to use, hope this helps people.

    Who's ever glued something together perfectly and thought it was dried and solid and you thought perfect! Then it broke immediately?!? Me!!! And you!!! 😂

    Very impressive set of two videos ..I personally made a mistake listening to Home Depot and bought the tube of Gorilla Max Strength adhesive ( HD has new product Gorilla Heavy Duty Ultimate (in an orange tube)) when I should’ve bought the Loctite 8X fact Loctite came out with a Loctite 9X , and I bought it based on your video.. that is by far the best product I have ever used !!Thank you ever so much for this pair of videos

    Maybe use a hardwood next time so the wood last longer than the glue. I know house construction is not made with it but in the garden most things are 👷
