Animal Glue

LD Davis is one of the world’s oldest and largest manufacturers and compounders of animal glues. Our animal glue formulas are 100% non-toxic, recyclable and biodegradable, making them exceptionally environmentally friendly.

Animal glue and hide glue are terms that have been historically used for this adhesive. The modern phrase in the industry is gelatin glue or jelly glue. We produce gelatin glue by recycling medical gel netting, the outer casing of soft oral medical tablets, into a natural, biodegradable adhesive.

“We greatly appreciate LD. Davis Industries customer service and your visit to our facility to perform a glue audit. Bill and Stacey made a significant difference regarding our glue preparation and application. The increased glue temperature made the greatest impact on the box bonding issues we were experiencing previously. By maintaining temperature, solids and viscosity of glue to LD Davis recommended starting points, I’m sure we will see more positive results. Thank you also for the positive interaction with our mechanics and the overall Protein Glue 101 training for our “EMMECI” production line.”

“Bill McCalla and his team at LD Davis have worked to provide us with the best possible glue for our Emmeci laminating machine. Bill is always very accommodating to our needs, and has visited our facility often to make sure operations are running smoothly on our Emmeci. We have been LD Davis customers for several years, and feel that their technical assistance has always been beyond our expectations.”
