Many factors play a role in increasing or decreasing cake glue open times.

Each glue is formulated by our technical lab team to satisfy a variety of open times.  Depending on the gluing equipment, these formulas can have an open time ranging from 10 seconds, to as long as 4 minutes (approximately). This makes cake glues extremely versatile in a variety of industries, including: rigid setup box, case making (bookbinding), woodworking, abrasives, laminating and more.
