A while back I wrote
that Gorilla glue has "no" tensional strength. That it is "easily" pulled
apart. Those remarks were based in part on a bad hair day. Since then I've done several catastrophic failure tests. In all cases the glue failed, not the wood. The largest pre-failure
load was 145 pounds per square inch. <http://www.atmlist.net/contrib/atmer-at-rocketmail-dot-com/glue/gorilla%20glue.jpg> While that's certainly not "no" tensional strength, compared to a real wood glue its terrible.
I'm fine with Gorilla glue for all the things it's good for. Depending
on it to safe guard a large well figured mirror would not be one of them.
