A product that stands the test of time
Glue is a product that has been around for nearly 200,000 years. As early as prehistoric times, Neanderthal man used a vegetable substance to fix the head of his tools on a handle. Developed with one of the first known civilizations, the Ancient Egypt, the productions diversify, and the glue of animal origin appears.
At the same time, glue conservation techniques evolved. First in the form of vegetable powder, then in liquid form. It was the addition of additives such as oil that really allowed fine control of the product before industrialization.
A product for every use
The industrial production has allowed an important economy of scale in time and money. The different yields, resulting from different chemical processes, offer a hitherto unequalled quality of assembly.
Depending on their composition, the speed of polymerization (drying) differs and they can be used on different materials:
- vinyl substances, due to the presence of water, adapt to absorbent materials;
- silicone is waterproof and more elastic;
- the polyurethane glue resists humidity and is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use;
- solvent-based products work well on plastics.
There are also powdered products, pasty products, oily products, etc. ETRAVES also masters two-component products that must be mixed to react and must therefore be stored separately.
Packaging of adhesives, our core business
At ETRAVES, packaging of adhesives is our specialty, since it constitutes about 50% of our activity. Just as there is a product for every need, there is also a packaging for every product or type of product. A good storage prevents polymerization against time.
