Gorilla Glue

Gorilla Glue

Gorilla Glue is a polyurethane glue. When exposed to moisture the adhesive reacts and creates a foaming action that fills while it sticks. Gorilla Glue has an open working time of 20 minutes. The glue is brown in colour, but dries a tan colour. Owned by a family company and manufactured by the Gorilla Glue Company of Cincinnati, Ohio, The brand Gorilla Glue and company was created by Mark Singer from the United States.



Gorilla Glue is designed to bond fundamentally flat, smooth surfaces. As the glue expands while setting, it will fill minor gaps, however, such a bond is weak as the expanded glue contains entrapped air bubbles.

Moisture in the air or the materials being bonded is usually sufficient to cause Gorilla Glue to cure. While the Gorilla Group and some of its competitors claim their cured adhesive is waterproof, other brands maintain only water-resistance.

Stainability of Gorilla Glue is variable.


Gorilla Glue makers also produce Gorilla tape, Gorilla wood glue, Gorilla Epoxy and Gorilla super glue. The super glue contains rubber particles so that the bond is impact tough.


Popular Science Magazine published Gorilla Tape in their “Best of What’s New, 2006” Issue.[1]
