How Long To Leave Panels In A Cold Press


From original questioner:

Good day, how long are you guys leaving panels clamped in a cold press? We are using Titebond coldpress glue on particle board and hpl. I have a lot of panels to glue but don't want to rush things. They will not be machined for at least a day of being pressed.

From contributor Ge

If the pieces are straight, an half hour or a bit longer will be enough so that the adhesive will hold the panel together. Maximum strength in 24 hours or so. If the pieces have stress or are not straight, then it will take longer, as the stress requires a stronger glue line.
