Animal glue is commonly referred to as Hide Glue. This term comes from the fact that gelatin is extracted from the hides of cattle, primarily, and then graded for different uses in food, pharmaceutical and the adhesive industry. Naturally, the technical grades are used to produce hide or cake glue. The term 'cake glue' refers to the finished adhesive in a cake form that must be melted by the end user prior to application.
