Casein adhesives date back to the early 1900's. Casein is a natural protein derived from milk by-products and was the standard bonding agent for wood products before synthetic resins and adhesives came of age. Caseins are still valued by manufacturers for their durability, water resistance and non-toxicity."
"Casein Primer is a transparent primer to dilute with water. It is used indoor prior to any Kreidezeit finish such as clay paints or lime paints, plasters, etc. Its binder is casein. The casein primer aims to saturate the untreated surfaces like clay plasters, lime plasters, lime based cement plasters and gypsum plasters, plasterboards, stone and concrete and to make it uniform to ensure a good performance of subsequent finish."
"The products which National Casein® markets and sells to the woodworking, furniture, millwork and packaging industries are the most complete line of adhesives offered by any adhesive company. These products include polyvinyl crosslinks which provide Type I and Type II water resistant bond characteristics, polyvinyl assembly adhesives, liquid and powder urea resins adhesives and a wide variety of powder adhesives including casein, melamine, melamine-urea blends, a straight urea powder adhesive, decorative paper adhesive, and vinyl film laminating adhesives."
"Kaseinlim 2628 is a middle-viscous casein-based glue with high moisture resistance and good gluing properties. Kaseinlim 2628 is well suited to lamination of wood and paper."
Bio degradable foam made from milk
Researchers develop biodegradable foam using clay and casein "Eco Factor: Strong biodegradable foam made from milk and clay.
Until now, we have seen harmful form being used for packaging, insulation or in furniture cushions, but here is an international team of scientists who wish to give the world a green alternative. The researchers have recently developed a biodegradable foam using clay and casein. Casein is a naturally-occurring protein in cow’s milk that has already been in some adhesives and paper coatings.
