Solid Glue sticks, such as Pritt-Stick is the adhesive of choice around the office, in schools or at home. A perfect glue for children to use as it washes out of clothes and is clean and simple to use. The glue stick was invented by Henkel in 1969, their inspiration came from the twist-up action of lipstick applicators. Since then over 1 billion Pritt Sticks have been sold to users in 121 countries.
For those that need a strong instant bond we also sell multi-purpose or industrial glues from 5 Star, Bostik and Loctite. This type of glue, also commonly known as Super Glue, are applied straight from the tube or using a brush applicator. These multi-purpose glues can be used to bond many materials such as metal, glass, wood, fabric and rubber. Be very careful when using these instant bond glues as they were initially developed for sealing skin together in the treatment of wounds. It is therefore very easy to glue your fingers together if any should be applied your skin by mistake. Although the bond is extremely strong there is no need to worry. Super glue can easily be removed by using acetone which is most commonly found around the home in nail polish remove. Simply dip an ear bud into the solution and apply directly to the glue, the bond should soon dissolve and no damage will be caused to the skin. For further details on removing super glue from skin we suggest you look at the extremely comprehensive Super Glue Corporation website .
But you don’t have to limit yourself to traditional adhesives as they now come in all sizes, shapes and perform many different functions around the home and office.
Blutac and Whitetac are re-usable adhesive putties used to fix posters and documents to walls. We also supply glue rollers, from the manufacturer Pritt, which applies a thin strip of adhesive with pin-point accuracy to documents. As an alternative to glue strip dispensers, UHU have dispensers which dispense glue dots and micro dots which provide either an instant permanent bond or alternatively a non-permanent bond.
If you need adhesives to be applied to large areas, for example to mount documents or photos, then look for the spray mount adhesives from 3M. Some of these give an almost instant bond whereas others will allow the document to be re-positioned if you get the positioning wrong first time. So, as you can see, the range of adhesives, glues, sticky strips and spray mount glues is extensive in their uses and applications.
