Adhesives are substance capable of sticking to surfaces of other substances and bonding them to one another. The term adhesive cement is sometimes used in place of adhesive, especially when referring to a synthetic adhesive. Animal glue, a gelatin made from hides, hooves, or bones, was probably used in prehistoric times too. It remained the leading adhesive until the 20th century. It is now used especially in making furniture. Animal glue is sold both as a solid (either ground or in sheets, to be melted in a water-jacketed glue pot and applied while hot) and as liquid glue (an acidic solution). Adhesives from vegetable sources are also important; they include natural gums and resins, mucilage, and starch and starch derivatives.
They are commonly used for sizing paper and textiles and for labeling, sealing, and manufacturing paper goods. Other adhesives derived from animal and vegetable sources include blood glue, casein glue, fish glue, rubber adhesives, and cellulose derivatives. Adhesives having special properties are prepared from synthetic resins. Some synthetic adhesives, such as the epoxy resins, are strong enough to be used in construction in place of welding or riveting. Adhesive tapes have a coating of pressure-sensitive adhesive.
[...] APPLICATION DETAILS Some of the uses of this adhesive are as follows: Furniture industry, decorative laminates, gluing to plywood or teak ply, TV/Radio-wooden cabinets. Sports goods manufacture such as tennis rackets hockey sticks, cricket balls, bats etc. Book binding. Fabric starching. Pencil manufacturing. Paper tube and cone manufacture. Wall paper fixing. Handicrafts making. METHOD OF APPLICATION Surface preparation Remove any deposit of foreign material in and around the area of substrates to be bonded. Ensure that the substrates are clean and dry. Sand blasting or wire brushing is recommended if the bonding surface of wood is coarse and fibrous. [...]
[...] Many retailers are in reality multilevel merchandisers (MLMs). That is, they have integrated the wholesaling functions within their channels, and, a number of them have integrated backward to the manufacturing level. Like large manufacturers, MLMs have considerable coercive reward and expert power that they can employ in an effort to control channels. Large retailers have unique overlapping attributes that may give them an edge in the struggle (if there is one) for channel control. First, by virtue of their proximity to local markets, they have an opportunity to accumulate expert power by continually assessing the needs of consumers within their communities, While other members of the channel could perform the same information-generating and uncertainty-absorbing tasks, they would undoubtedly have to expend more effort in data collection, simply because of the retailers' location.

[...] Mixing and decanting of adhesive Before using the adhesive mix it properly using a glass rod or wooden stick. Take out only the required quantity of adhesive from the container and ensure that the lid is replaced immediately. Avoid exposure of the adhesive to atmosphere to prevent any skin formation on the surface. Application Apply the adhesive uniformly on both the surfaces to be bonded using an applicator. Remove excess of glue from the surface. Spread the adhesive evenly in about 5-10 minutes time and then bring the two substrates to close contact by hand pressing so that no air gets entrapped between the surfaces. [...]
[...] Enriched with special preservative to prevent any bacterial growth during storage. Water based, and hence easy to dilute if needed (the applicators and containers can be easily cleaned with water). No such chemical present which could be hazardous to health or harmful on contact with skin? APPLICATION DETAILS Some of the uses of this adhesive are as follows: Wood working (for bonding ply board to mica laminate and for bonding wood to wood). Furniture industry. Sports goods. Book binding, Handicrafts. Fabric starching. [...]
[...] They have low adhesion and generally can not support much weight. They are commonly used on paper, but can be used on many other things.
