natural glue granules (made of animal protein) which are crystalline, sand coloured and transparent, contains gluten, odourless, water soluble, processing temperature is about 50°C - 60°C, no hazardous label required by the German Hazardous Substance Ordinance
This fine crystalline Modulor hide glue is characterized by its high adhesive strength. It also maintains its elasticity, an attribute that makes it especially good for priming flexible painting surfaces (canvas) or for use as a paint binding agent necessary for the distemper technique of decorative painting. Hide glue is a natural product that, when stored in a dry and cool place, will maintain its effectiveness for practically an unlimited amount of time.
When preparing it for a typical gluing job, the granulate should be stirred into cold water (maximum: room temperature) in a ratio of 1:4. After allowing it to soak for 2 to 6 hours, the resulting mixture should then be stirred again in a water bath at a temperature of 50°C (maximum 60°C – definitely do not allow the water to boil because the glue will lose its bonding strength). At this temperature the beads will dissolve into a solution. The glue should be warm when being used because if the temperature of the admix falls below 50°C, the solution will begin to form a gel.
