The first white glue
was introduced in India in 1959. The brand was originally launched as an easy-to-use glue for carpenters. An extensive range of consumer, craftsmen, engineering and industrial adhesives were also introduced under the Fevicol brand name. Before Fevicol came to the production line, adhesives were usually made from animal fat, colloquially known as Saresh. These adhesives had to be boiled before application. The fumes that emanated from the process of boiling emitted a very bad odor. Fevicol changed all this. Fevicol is marketed in 54 countries worldwide. In India alone it is available at over 50,000 stores across the country.
Fevicol is a polysynthetic resin
adhesive. It can be used in bonding various materials, where one of the surfaces to be bonded has to be porous. Fevicol strongly binds wood, plywood
, laminate, veneer
, MDF and all types of boards, cork etc. It is also used in sport goods manufacturing and book binding. The bond gives handling strength in 8 to 10 hours and cures fully in 24 hours.
