Adhesives use animal glue
Animal glue, also known as industrial gelatin, skin glue, is the main component of adhesive.
It is a protein solid made from the partial hydrolysis, extraction and drying of collagen contained in animal skin, bone or tendon. Color is light yellow to brown.
It can soluble in water, slightly soluble in alcohol, insoluble in organic solvents. Its aqueous solution has surface activity and high viscosity.
When cooled, it will freeze into an elastic gel and returns to a solution when heated.
The latter is unique to animal gelatins and can be quantified in terms of gel strength, often referred to as freezing capacity.
This is the main physical property that determines the commercial value of animal gelatins, the rigidity of gels formed under standard conditions.
The value of commodities increases as the freezing force increases. The freezing force is measured by a special instrument called a luminance meter, expressed in grams.
Specification of adhesives use animal glue?
What are the types of animal glue?
Animal glue can be divided into bone glue and skin glue according to raw materials. Broadly speaking, animal glue also includes blood glue, fish glue, cheese glue, tortoise shell glue, etc., but these products are not large in scale, not widely used, so generally not included in the classification of animal glue.
If according to the refined level of the product cent, the coarse taste of rough processing is bone glue and skin glue, fine taste of fine processing is gelatin. If according to the product is divided into gelatin and industrial glue (bone glue and leather glue) two categories. Food grade gelatin is more versatile than bone glue and skin glue. Food grade gelatin is the main product of most modern animal glue manufacturers. Traditionally, bone glue, skin glue and gelatin are collectively called three glue.
What is the production process of Adhesives use animal glue?
The production process of hide glue mainly includes raw material pretreatment, extraction and finished product manufacturing.
Raw material pretreatmentRemove fat, minerals and other non-collagenous substances in raw materials (bone or skin). The main processes are degreasing, alkali treatment and acid treatment. The raw material pretreatment process of industrial glue is relatively simple, but gelatin is higher. The pretreatment process is related to the product variety and quality.
First, the cross-linked hydrogen bonds or electrostatic bonds in the collagen contained in the raw material are broken under the action of hot water. Second is the hydrolytic fracture of covalent bonds, which causes the disintegration of collagen, and this action is called cleavage. After unfolded, soluble animal glue are produced. A dilute solution with a concentration of 3 ~ 8% (mostly 5 ~ 7%) was obtained by hot water extraction. For different products, the extraction steps and process conditions are different.
The finished product manufacturingThe finished product of animal glue is made from thin glue liquid, which is mainly through filtration, evaporation and concentration, gel forming and drying.
(1) Filtration: generally using plate and frame filter press, and use the cotton pulp board as the filter medium. This kind of equipment is cheaper, but filter cake clearing must be manually intermittent, this way suitable for small and medium-sized enterprises. Modern large filter production equipment use the driving device consists of group, pressure cylinder and centrifugal self-cleaning blade filter.
The filter blade is placed in the pressure cylinder, and the inner side of each filter blade is connected with the hollow shaft, and the upper and lower are covered with a very fine metal wire mesh. Adding diatomite filter aid in advance to form a filter slurry, then pumping into the liquid pressure cylinder, filter aid on the filter leaf to form a filter medium layer. After a certain period of filtration operation, rotate the filter blade set to remove the filter residue and filter aid
together by centrifugal force.
(2) Evaporation and concentration: multi-effect tube or plate evaporator is generally carried out under reduced pressure. After evaporation, the concentration of the gel reached more than 20 ~ 25%.
(3) Gel forming: Use the drum or belt type gel machine, so that the concentrated liquid glue cold can condense into irregular sheet or small particles. Another commonly used is the inner and outer tube cooler, which is a kind of tube type equipment with cooling jacket inside and outside.
The glue liquid flows through the middle annular gap under pressure, and the gap is also equipped with a rotating scraper. After cooling, the gel is pushed and squeezed by the scraper and fluid together through the porous plate at the exit, and the thin gel is extruded. So this equipment is also called extruding machine.
(4) Drying: using drum dryer or long net belt dryer. Roller type is clearance type operation, suitable for small and medium-sized enterprises. Long net belt type is continuous operation, suitable for large factories. After drying, the water content of the product is generally less than 16%. Some products need to be crushed and screened after drying to get the final product.
How to use Animal glue?
First use the same amount or slightly more water (the general glue ratio is 1 to 1.2-3, it is best to use warm water) to soak the glue for a few hours, let it soften, then heat it up to about 75 degrees, so it can be used as glue.
The proportion of glue should be determined according to the viscosity needed, such as lower viscosity is had when adding too much water, higher viscosity is had when adding too small water. The temperature should not be too high when heating glue, the temperature exceeding 100 degrees will due to molecular degradation and viscosity decrease, glue aging deterioration.
The glue has trace precipitation in the process of use, so it is necessary to add water to the stirring side to adjust the viscosity and fluidity. Hot glue must be heated by bath heat method, do not directly use glue storage container heating. Glue can only be used under certain temperature conditions, therefore: when adding water while using, water temperature should be basically the same as the glue temperature, do not add cold water. Because the glue must be kept at a certain temperature (75 degrees ±10 degrees), the temperature will drop sharply after adding cold water, which will cause clumps and affect the bonding effect. When using glue, the speed of glue coating should be fast and uniform. Do not dip the glue too much at a time to cause uneven rubber layer, infiltration, joint adhesion, glue leakage and other problems. Adjust the amount of water and rubber powder to the required viscosity, coating use.
What other usage for animal glue?First is used for match manufacturing, mainly using colloidal foaming to form pores, combined with oxidizer, ignition agent and filler, so that the instant ignition;
Second is as an adhesive, using its high strength, elasticity and toughness, the production of emery cloth, sandpaper, bonding wood, binding books and used in gift boxes assembly lines, advanced Musical Instruments, furniture industry;
Third is electrolysis, where the addition of an electrolyte helps produce a smooth, dense anode sedimentation, eliminate production losses;
Fourth is used for textiles, in the yarn bundle can form a film, so as to increase the toughness, strength, fiber smoothness and elasticity, prevent fracture;
Fifth is for the manufacture of negative photosensitive corrosion film with dichromate;
Sixth is the extraction of hydrolyzed protein, used for additives;
Seventh is an important raw material for the production of paintball.
In short, animal glue or industrial gelatin is widely used in plate, furniture, matches, feed, packaging, paper making, textile, silk, printing and dyeing, printing, ceramics, petroleum, chemical, coating, metallurgy and other industries of all kinds of products, including the main thickening, stabilization, coagulation, blending, polishing, sizing, solid glue, etc.
