What is an adhesive?
« on: 25/06/2009 10:54:06 »
any substance that is capable of holding materials together in a functional manner by surface attachment that resists separation. “Adhesive” as a general term includes cement, mucilage, glue, and paste—terms that are often used interchangeably for any organic material that forms an adhesive bond. Inorganic substances such as portland cement also can be considered adhesives, in the sense that they hold objects such as bricks and beams together through surface attachment, but this article is limited to a discussion of organic adhesives, both natural and synthetic.

The spam aside, the actual subject is quite an interesting one - how different adhesives work. I never understood how horses and other old carcasses were turned into glue though - can anyone enlighten me?

I'm afraid I'm stuck for an answer to that one.
