M&G USTiC Glue Sticks
Glue sticks were an innovation which drew its inspiration from Lipstick! This unlikely association is based on the twist-up mechanism used by some types of lipstick and the idea was used by the German company Henkel who in 1969 produced the first twist-up glue stick and marketed it under the brand name, ‘Pritt Stick’. It was such a good idea that within just 2 years the Pritt Stick was being sold in 38 countries around the world. Since then there have been many alternative products produced by innumerable manufacturers because the idea is basically very simple!
There are two type of glue used in glue stick products. One is PVA, the other is PVP. Both have their merits but in general, the PVP type is more expensive than the PVA.
M&G Glue sticks
M&G glues make both PVA and PVP glue sticks. We have added the PVA type to the UK range and plan to introduce the PVP type in 2018. There are thre sizes available: 9g, 21g and 36g. The glue is non-toxic so it is safe for children to use under adult supervision. It is suitable for use with photos, card, fabric and paper.
A favourite demonstration that I like to perform at exhibitions is to show how well the glue sticks paper. While talking to visitors I stick two pieces of paper together and then 10 minutes later invite them to pull them apart. The paper either tears or de-laminates: the glue is very strong!
