Hi, Can someone please tell me where I might be able to purchase Maxim 5/15 frame glue online in the U.S.? I haven't had much success locating it so far with my web searches, and I would appreciate any referrals.
Thank you,
-Mercury

Maxim Glue 5/15 and also Maxim 1/15 can be bought direct from the source which is Frame Specialties in Elkhart Indiana, tel: 1-800-777-3165

A number of members of the NDN Distribution Group sell the product and If you call Frame Specialties they can tell you the name of the nearest distributor to you.

You can try Furst Bros in Baltimore 410-752-0325

I can't help it.

If you ask for Elmer, aren't you going to get Elmer's Glue???

I have samples of these glues that I picked up at a trade show. I never tried them. I wonder how they compare to the white glue by Framica called Corner Weld. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I've used both and prefer Corner Weld.

I haven't used Maxim Blue. Is the only dfference the length of time to set up?

Anyone using the Blue label Maxim 1 min set up?

Is this glue permenant (water proof) when dry or does it stay water soluable?

Most of the white and yellow glues we use for framing are not waterproof. If the glue joint gets soaked enough to dissolve the glue, chances are it would also destroy the wood frame's finish.

Tite Bond has at least one waterproof glue, as do some other makers, but why would you want a waterproof glue for framing? If the yacht sinks, the frames on board probably are not a high priority.

I absolutely love the Maxim Blue (1-15). Len Lastuck has brought a number of great products to our industry and this is one of them.

Okay Dave...

But Len LaStuck?

Sorry Lenny where ever you are...

Sorry Jim you must have misinterputed. I Did not say I was wanted a waterproof glue. I was just asking if it was waterproof.

Thank you all for the replies.

Orr Moulding (1-800-833-3131, Jonathan or Debbie) not only distributes Maxim, but uses it in-house. We ran through our bottle of Blue, haven't opened the Red yet since we got a good deal to reload on CornerWeld.

The Blue holds really nicely, sets up quickly so you can produce faster. I've had problems with other glues not setting and just making a mess. Mostly its me being impatient though. Dollar-for-dollar, they're really similar. But I would go back to Maxim Blue as soon as I've got a chance.

I've used both the Blue and Red but prefer the quicker set-up times of the Blue.

Frame Specialties says they sell more of the Red.

Like Dave, I prefer the blue. Good stuff and fast.

After all.....time is money!

And Len Lastuck is a great "framers friend."

I picked up a bottle of Maxim 5/15 from my supplier and it sat in my van for a couple of days..... below zero... frozen like a rock.

Will this effect its performance?

I am afraid you may be SOL on this bottle of glue. White glue does not take well to being frozen. That is why they won't ship the stuff in the winter. Once is thaws and separates it is buh-bye!

Seven years later....

I just noticed the date of when this thread started. I ended up trying Maxim Blue and love it. I've been using it for the past seven years and appreciate the quick set up time.:thumbsup::thumbsup:
