TECHNOLOGY OF MANUFACTURING OF GLUE FOR SKINING THE LEATHER
The skin is glued together with a solution of pure rubber in carbon disulfide . The parts to be bonded should be slightly warmed up and the adhesive should be rubbed carefully on the room of the future joint. It is recommended to add a small amount of turpentine to the resulting solution.
You can also prepare glue for hides in the following way : a good-quality light-grained carpenter's glue is soaked in water for a day and then also slowly melted in a fire with a small amount of water. Later, tannin is added to the liquid mass, which makes it look like sticky threads. Gluing is made by this sticky mass, and the skin must be pre-cleaned (washed with gasoline) and also made rough with glass paper (sandpaper).
