ADH02 – Gelatine Adhesive
A pure grade of gelatine powder, light straw in colour . Selected for use as a reversible timber adhesive especially for furniture restoration, as the glue line is weaker than the wood. This means that if the joint is put under any stress the adhesive will fail in preference to the timber.
Dissolves readily in hot water to make a fast setting adhesive. Recommended mixture equal parts by weight or 3 parts by volume of the powder to 2 parts by volume of hot water. When cold this mixture can be reliquified by heating in a hot water bath. The set adhesive can be reversed with warm water and if very old with a 2% solution of ammonia. Do not boil.
