Pre-Glued Dowel Pins
Chicago Dowel Pre-Glued Dowel Pins are the industry leader. We start
with our regular white birch pins and then coat them with an uncatalyzed,
water-activated, PVA (Polyvinyl Acetate) glue. Our perfection of
the coating process is essential to our customers' success in using
this product. Avoid inferior imitations where the glue is poorly
dispersed on the pin and parts of the wood dowel are visible. Our
Pre-Glued Dowel Pins' glue is generously and evenly coated to ensure
a stronger bond.
Diameters between 5mm and 3/4", and lengths from 3/4"
Multi Grooved (Fluted) and Spiral Grooved
Pre-Glued Dowel Pins may be used in a variety of applications. These
pins are predominantly sold to the casegood/cabinetry, framed/upholstered
furniture, drawer box, and interior raised panel door industries.
The Pre-Glued Dowel Pin is not suitable for exterior applications.
Pre-Glued Dowel Pins are very simple and convenient to use. Simply
spray water into the boring and insert the pin. Do not dip or soak
the pins. The amount of water necessary will depend upon the type
of material you are joining.
Particle/MDF core users should use just enough water to moisten
the boring, while hardwood/plywood users should employ more. Those
that are hand-inserting may use something as simple as a spray bottle,
plant mister, etc. Those that are automatically inserting should
remove all residual glue from the delivery system and reduce the
pot pressure and/or delivery time. If the automatic inserter has
trouble achieving proper delivery, try reducing the orifice size.
Drying time depends upon a number of variables such as amount of
water used, type of material, and environmental factors.
We encourage the user to perform their own trials to determine
the method that best suits their specific applications.
