Detailed Description

Hide Glue (192 gram strength) - 25 lb

Hide Glue, hhg, is the most versatile of animal protein glue and serves as a terrific general purpose woodworking glue. For centuries Hide Glue (animal skin) has been used in furniture making, musical instruments and the decorative arts. Hide glue possesses a variety of properties such as reversibility, color absorption, fast tack, flexibility, super strength and it will not "creep". All these properties make hide glue a great choice for joinery and veneering. Traditionally, hide glue is mixed in hot water from dry flakes or pellets - this is the strongest type of hide glue because it is mixed fresh with no additives. Since animal glues can be debonded at any time with gentle heat, they are an obvious choice for sensitive restoration and repair jobs, and the choice for Luthiers. Bone and hide glue also offer high strength, good low-pressure gap-filling ability, high initial tack, and fast cure. Forget their reputation for being smelly and messy; held at the proper temperature in an electric glue pot, hide glue stays ready to use all day with minimal attention, as opposed to the noxious fumes and short pot life of other adhesives. Choose bone glue for a rigid bond; rabbit skin glue for elasticity. For a good general purpose glue, we recommend regular hide glue, a light-colored, high grade odorless glue. It is made by Milligan & Higgins and has a 192 gram strength.
