The purpose of using glue isn't to retain the screws, it is to seal out water. So binding glue doesn't need to be super strong, but should be cold temperature resistant and waterproof.
While some people use wood glue, others believe wood glue (and Titebond) are not good choices — being water-based glues, they can lead to rusting of screws.
Recommendations from a very experienced AT binding mounter:
Another recommendation: Liquid Nails Perfect Glue is a nice acid free polymer that remains flexible and resists temps down to -60. http://www.liquidnails.com/products/high-temperature-adhesive-PG00
Epoxies may be more than needed, but as noted above, an option if you want to add some strength.
Anybody have any other recommendations or tips?

Lou Dawson at Wildsnow tested and positively reviewed the ATK Raider 12 2.0 all mountain touring binding, which Hagan is making available in the U.S. and worldwide as the Hagan Core binding. The Hagan Core is blue and black to match the Hagan Core alpine touring boot and Hagan Core series of skis. (In my humble opinion, the Hagan Core looks better than the ATK Raider 12 2.0, but that is personal preference.)
There is a lot more effort and expense to "making available" than simply changing the colors — including insurance (a huge expense), distribution, warranty and service support — but that is a subject for another blog post.

The Hagan Core binding is an entirely new binding from Hagan, designed in conjunction with ATK and a significant improvement on the ATK Raider 12. The Hagan Core is a high performance Freeride and All Mountain touring binding. While specifically designed with our Core series skis in mind (with colors that match beautifully), the Core will also work superbly with our Boost freeride skis and Ride tour classic skis.
