Animal Based Adhesives

Hide Glue 5A

Hide Glues or animal glues are essentially natural high-polymer proteins. These organic colloids are derived from collagen, which is the protein constituent of animal hides, skins, connective tissue, and bones (eew!). Animal glue is used in a wide range of art conservation, restoration and gilding applications such as: furniture restoration, painting consolidants, china and glass repair, canvas sizing and the making of gesso. Most animal glues have a dry moisture content between 11-14 percent and range in pH from 6.5 to 7.5. Once made up, animal glues will support the growth of mold, to prevent this, keep these product refrigerated when not being used.

Our 5A hide glue is actually a premium grade high-test technical gelatin. 5A is classified as a technical gelatin because of its extra high purity and very light color.
