It is a soluble protein in hot water extracted from a raw material with collagen content. The collagen is a protein with a complex structure that comes from nature. We can find it in hide, skin and animal bones.
It is used as an adhesive in hot application. Moreover, while it cools down and solidifies, it acts as a glue. It has a high tack which helps in many of applications with a fast stickness.
It is characterized by being a water-based adhesive, neither toxic nor flammable, and therefore not dangerous. This is the main difference between this natural product and other types of adhesives.
This feature allows the oldest adhesive in the world to become ideal for many of current production lines. Nowadays machines need to work at a fast speed and the quickness that offers gelatin in comparison to other glues, guarantees its continuity along the upcoming years.
