Technical Gelatine or Animal Glue differs from edible and pharmaceutical gelatine principally in that it is not essential that they meet the rigid specifications for human consumption set forth by the various municipal, state and federal governments to protect the health of the general public – this product is a NATURAL ADHESIVE and is classified into two main types, Bone Glue and Hide Glue. The differences between them are due largely to the different methods of processing. It is an adhesive of great versatility with broad acceptance in industry and is widely used in various fields.
