  TITEBOND MELAMINE GLUE from Franklin International is designed for bonding wood, particleboard, MDF and other porous substrates to synthetic materials such as melamine, vinyl and HPL as well as metals. It offers a fast initial tack, but has a longer open time that allows for the accurate alignment of working materials, according to the manufacturer. Titebond Melamine Glue is a water-based adhesive that is nonflammable, has low odor, dries clear and cleans up with water. Its thicker formulation offers fewer runs and drips, making it easier to use and more effective for precise assemblies, according to the company. Titebond Melamine Glue is available in three sizes: 16 oz. bottle ($4.50 to $5.25), gallon bottle ($23 to $27) and a 5-gallon pail ($75).
