L.D. Davis Animal Glue in Bird Seed Molds

If you are a manufacturer of bird seed molds, L.D. Davis has the glue for you!

The winter season is here. It’s that time where cardinals, blue jays, chickadees and purple finches fly out. As you begin to see more bird feeders and seed molds hanging in people’s yards you think about getting one yourself.

Who would have thought that L.D. Davis animal glue could be used for bird seed molds? Our animal glue is manufactured for the use of gluing seed to straw and wood, perfect for seed molds and feeders. It was developed to offer high tack and long open time. The protein base adhesive has a light amber coloration and we manufacture this glue in cake form.

The main protein adhesive, which is a gelatin based product, that we use to help manufacture bird seed molds is NW436C. This is a custom formulation

Of course this is 100% safe for birds and those pestering squirrels as well. Remember that all the animal glues we manufacture are 100% non toxic.
