Default Gorilla Glue Thinner

I have a half bottle of Gorilla glue that has thickened a bit, does not
seems to have set.
Is there a solvent/thinner that can be used.

From the smell looks like Alcohol could work.

Thanks
Mauro

Gorilla Glue (and all polyurethane glues) has a short shelf life once
it has been opened. I don't think it can be thinned back to a useable
consistancy, but it wouldn't hurt to try (on scrap of course). It
will still work, but it is slower to set and may not have the
strengthn it has when fresh.

Have you contacted the Gorilla company and asked them? Check Google out to
see if they have a site.

I have not had good luck storing Gorilla Glue once opened. They say to
squeeze all the air out of the bottle before sealing. I read somewhere to
then seal the bottle in an air tight container. I am trying a zip top
baggie, squeezing the air out of this also.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
There is a household device called a "FoodSaver." which I use for things
like this. It is intended mainly for vacuum packing food, but I have also
used it for photographic developer, and I am sure it would work for Gorilla
Glue. You have a choice of using heat-sealed plastic bags, mason jars,
proprietary canisters which come with the unit, and wine bottles. My
avocados last until they're used up.

Mineral spirits or acetone will work.Do a google search and go to the
woodgazette website.They are doing an ongoing test of thinning gorilla
glue and strength of the glue. It appears that either solvent will
work fine,one fellow puts a 1/4' of acetone over the remaining glue in
the bottle before he puts it away.This appears to keep the glue fresh
and not harden in the bottle.I"ll have to try it myself.
