Glue and Adhesives

Glue or adhesive is a liquid or semi-liquid mixture that bonds items together. It can be natural or synthetic, one part or two part, the latest development or an ancient recipe that still works. This is the place for glue/adhesive questions, such as - how to use it successfully, what it's made of, or how to get it out of your hair!

When was it illegal to use horse hooves for glue?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

From some 5,000 years ago, when Egyptians used hide glue, made from animal hide. Mostly glue has been made from the hooves, bones, connective tissue, etc., and hide. I believe that hooves are still used for this purpose, probably other parts as well, and of course other animals are also used.

How strong are gorillas?

Asked by Wiki User

I have read that an adult gorilla's upper body strength is six times more powerful than a humans, however I wouldn't be surprised if were much more than that. For example a chimp is supposedly ten times stronger than a human, and I would say the gorilla is much stronger than a chimp.

What kind of adhesive do you use on a fish tank?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

For building decorations and aquariums, I use pure clear silicone sealant which is also labeled "For Aquarium Use". Do not use silicone with any kind of algaecide in it (such as Silicone II at the hardware store) as the algaecide is toxic. Let the item dry until you don't smell fumes anymore and then it is safe to put into the tank or to fill with water. I also use aquarium epoxy (cut piece, knead, use), but it only comes in "stone" or "white" and both colors look like chewing gum in the aquarium. It dries rock solid, however, and is what I use when I will be able to completely hide the epoxied area. It works great for sealing pipe leaks and fittings and for building sumps.

Animal bones and especially the hooves of hoofed animals contain gelatin. Most animals slaughtered for food at abattoirs are used for this purpose. The hooves and sometimes bones are boiled to make gelatin which is used for glue, jelly and as a coagulant.

I would not use superglue in an Aquarium. I think there may be something on the superglue containers/tube stating that it is not for use in water.

Are horses killed for glue?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Horses have not been used as a by-product of glue for quite some time. With advances in other types of adhesives the use of equine body parts has fallen out of favor. It is also 'politically incorrect' due to huge gains in animal rights.

Yes, but some companies have stopped using it in their products. I believe Elmer's glue does not use animals in their glue.

White glue or carpenter's glue (you may know it as Elmer's glue) is made from protein, and therefore can be eaten by cockroaches. There are other kinds of glue which are not edible even by cockroaches.

How do you get glue out of dog fur?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

That depends on the base of the glue that is on the puppy. If it is water based glue a long soak in a bath will do the trick to loosen the glue and then can be rubbed off. If it is like a super glue, soaking in a bath may help but may not remove all the glue.

Can you eat elmers glue?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Yes, technically if you were stupid enough to try you could physically eat Elmer's glue. Although how much is another question entirely. While I don't suppose that there have been any official studies done on this, I would venture to say that there would be a correlation between your IQ and the amount you would be able to ingest, the correlation being the lower your IQ the more you would ingest.

This is a great question and I would encourage you to do some testing of your own. Good luck.

How do you get super glue of the kitchen work surface?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

I just had a fit when I came home and mother in law has got super glue all over my laminate worktop in the most shiny area of my kitchen!! I actually think I have removed all of it. I thought the glue had melted the surface and ruined it as you could feel the surface change when you run your hand over it but I remembered that NAIL VERNISH REMOVER breaks down the glue :D and after lots of scrubbing and washing I think I have removed all of it apart from one deep scratch mark. I am pleased if I have as we were just about to phone insurers and repalce the whole kithchen with new tops.so give it a try!
