Gluing To Melamine


I'm repairing some melamine kitchen cabinets and want to add a block of 1x4 on top and out of sight. Not critical, but I want to add them anyway.

Which normal glues have good adhesion to melamine? Just don't feel like buying melamine glue for a single use.

Thanks.

(Would epoxy do it?)

Melamine glue. Not much else sticks to it. You might scuff it up and try a super glue, but I'm doubting it'll stick for long. Even melamine glue's grip isn't that great.

Try Titebond Melamine Glue but it's not for structural application, other than that it will hold.

Iím not sure how itís spelled but I use roo/rue glue, I borrow it from the cabinet guys. They buy it by the gallon and store it in aftermarket bottles so Iíve never seen the label.

Re: Gluing To Melamine


It's called RooClear (totally forgot about that one) Thanks for bringing that up. Last time I did a melamine repair or glued anything to it was 20 years ago...since then it's been all Granite.

Just looked it up, you can get 16OZ for $14 or a Gallon on Amazon, gonna get one just to have it around.

Thanks again!

Roo Clear is a great glue, so is Roo Super Bond. They are the 2 glues we use daily, I buy it by the gallons case.

Roo Clear will bond to uv pre-fin.
