Glues and adhesives are easily available for both small and large-scale uses in Mableton. A glue is defined as an adhesive substance used for sticking objects or materials together. These are usually obtained by boiling collagenous animal parts such as bones, hides, and hooves into hard gelatin and then adding water, of course, now synthetic options are also available. Adhesives and glues are classified in various ways- the method of adhesion, the nature of the adhesive (whether reactive or non-reactive), the starting physical phase, or the origin of the raw stock (whether natural, or synthetic origin). Some of the types of adhesives include pressure sensitive adhesives, contact adhesives, hot adhesives, multi-part adhesives, natural and synthetic adhesives, and many more. Applicators for glues and adhesives are designed based on the kind of adhesive, as well as the surface area where it is applied. Some common applicators include brushes, rollers, using films or pellets, spray guns and applicator guns. The method of application may be either manual or be automated. One should buy glue depending on the intended usage. For household repairs, they're usually for wood or other materials. Common wood adhesives include: Clear cement, contact cement, epoxy, hide glue, hot-melt glue, plastic resin (urea resin or urea-formaldehyde), waterproof adhesive (resorcinol), white glue, woodworker's glue and polyurethane glue. Common glues for other materials are: acrylic resin, contact cement, cyanoacrylate, epoxy, construction adhesive, wall-covering adhesives, glue sticks, adhesive cartridges and spray adhesive.
Each year as a tradition to myself and this green movement website, I write on the events of Earth Day (April 22nd) this year is no exception. I will focus more on some new ideas and representations of our planet Earth. The symbols of Earth Day have been similar throughout the years, including an image or drawing of the Earth..
