Characteristics of natural glues

 
Casein
Fish
Hide
Rice & wheat pastes
Applications glue smallbullet tropical woods;
glue smallbullet structural lamination,
glue smallbullet panel and flush door covering;
glue smallbullet may produce glue lines with a thick appearance.
glue smallbullet light-duty, wood-to-wood bonding;
glue smallbullet natural nonwood materials (such as cloth, metal and bone) to wood.
glue smallbullet good combination of versatility, compatibility and strength;
glue smallbullet edge- and face-gluing, assembling joints; veneering, repairing and bonding natural nonwood materials to wood.
glue smallbullet also used for sizing, a wood conditioner and a grain filler.

glue smallbullet bonding porous, pliant materials (such as paper, cloth and leather) to wood;
glue smallbullet commercial formulas require no cooking and are easy to use.
Availability/ using glue smallbullet requires careful two-step mixing with water.
glue smallbullet ready to use;
glue smallbullet can be coloured with dyes etc;
glue smallbullet refrigerate to extend shelf life.
glue smallbullet granules -mix with water and heat to 140°F before use;
glue smallbullet ready-to-use liquid hide glues also available;
glue smallbullet add water if glue thickens;
glue smallbullet add urea or salt to retard gel rate;
glue smallbullet can be coloured with dyes etc.
glue smallbullet mix with water and cook before use (if required);
glue smallbullet add preservative to prevent mould growth;
glue smallbullet can be coloured with dyes etc.

glue smallbullet not strong enough for most structural wood-to-wood bonding.
Long-term properties glue smallbullet high-grade formulas have good moisture and solvent resistance;
glue smallbullet low-grade formulas have lower moisture resistance;
glue smallbullet can be subject to bacterial and fungal attack unless preservative is added.
glue smallbullet Excellent heat and solvent resistance;
glue smallbullet poor water resistance;
glue smallbullet glue layers desiccate with time and becomes brittle.
glue smallbullet resistant to moderate heat and moisture levels, despite reversibility;
glue smallbullet good solvent resistance and shock resistance;
glue smallbullet glue layers desiccate with time and becomes brittle.
glue smallbullet subject to bacterial and fungal attack unless preservative is added.
