I just tried this out on my latest build and as far as I can see it's just the same as Titebond...Looks the same, bonds the same, tastes the same:drool: only difference I can spot is Titebond says don't use below 50 F and Vitalbond says 55 F..and it comes in smaller bottle sizes 120ML & 250ML
Has anybody got anymore info on it?? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VitalBond-Original-Wood-Glue-Titebond-professional-120ml-250ml/332627007140?epid=18012034171&hash=item4d721d56a4:m:miVoSrtB5563PQm1uXP4VJQ

says don't use below 50 C and Vitalbond says 55 C..

Those temperatures would limit its usefulness in NZ ..... but with global warming on the way .....

From the info i've gathered on the web..Vitalbond is a trade name for a line of adhesives supplied by a Gluelines in the UK and this is the original Titebond # TB500 in a Vitalbond bottle .. aimed at the model making market for model planes and such.

Thanks for pointing me to Gluelines Ken. Uhu produce a solvent based glue I use for my celluloid bindings. I don't like the current stuff I use so will try this company.

I am not familiar with "Vitalbond" over here on this side of the Atlantic. I suspect it is just Titebond under a different name. Marketing? Same old wine in a new bottle? Also the specs on Titebond I say a 50 degree working minimum. That said, I still think the stuff is great.
