Okay, so I am using Titebond II Dark wood glue (I got a hell of a deal on the dark in gallons).

It holds well on MDF and plyboard, but how does it hold on OSB?

More specifically, how well will it hold on Avantech? It is like OSB, but with much smaller chips, and it has some sort of moisture treating on it.

I have a customer who wants me to build him a rack for his CB radio and CD player with it. He wants the look of the OSB after it is painted......:rolleyes:

Only stipulation: he wants no mechanical fasteners. No screws or nails at all.

Normally, I would have laughed at him, but it's winter and times are hard. I need the coinz, and he brought me a full sheet of Avantech, and I can keep the scraps.

Will Titebond hold it, or do I need to break out the Liquid Nails?

Did some reading up on Advantech and they recommend a solvent based or poly glue, but I'm guessing that's because it's normally used for flooring and moisture/water could be an issue.

Found some threads where guys used TB with no issues. If you're still concerned then contact the manufacturer...
