Is Elmer's Probond Wood Glue Polyurethane based?

Is Elmer's Probond Wood Glue the same thing as Elmer's Probond Polyurethane glue?

Beside the "Elmer's Probond" trademark reinforcement, I don't think there's anything similar in these two glues.

AFAIK Elmers flavor of PU is called "Ultimate High Performance". It's clear/brown like Gorilla. Best glue ever.

rich and Serban have it right. I had the same questions a couple months back when I was researching glues. Elmers used to use the 'ProBond' term for their PU glue, but now they seem to have adopted the 'Ultimate' label, and are using the ProBond term for higher quality wood glue. The MSDS sheets show they are VERY different glues. Here's the links to the Elmer's website:

Nope....one gets all foamy (polyurathane) the other just gets rock hard.
