Glues based on liquid resin emulsions have a very brief history relative to that of animal glues. Animal glues have been used for a variety of applications for centuries. Up until the 1940’s, the major glues used were natural polymers dispersed in water such as starch, dextrin and animal glue. Over the years resin glues have penetrated some application areas.
L.D. Davis manufactures a line of water-based liquid resin glues which are eco-friendly. The major components of these glues are vinyl acetate, ethylene vinyl acetate and acrylic resin emulsion polymers.

Physical Properties of Resin Glue
- Extremely strong and durable glue. Once applied, forms a very tight and strong bond extremely quickly
- Resin emulsion polymers offer a wide range of elasticity, surface tack and cohesive strength to tailor glue properties for excellent performance in a wide range of applications.
The Major Advantages of Resin Glue
- Can be extremely moisture-resistant
- Adhere and bond well to a wide variety of substrates
- Very stable in wide range of temperatures and humidity
- Extremely strong and durable
- Low Tg versions (glass transition temperature) make excellent PSA’s (pressure sensitive glues).
