This site is primarily concerned with historical matters. Many products and their properties are described herein. In some cases literature and technical information is given, too.

Please bear in mind that these products should be viewed in this historical context and not related to modern products.

For instance Evo-Stik 528 was introduced in 1948 and is still available today, manufactured by Bostik UK. It may be interesting to compare the applications and properties of early products compared with those today.

Products are conceived and those that are born grow and mature and finally die. During their life they often change considerably to meet new challenges and changes in laws - such as health and safety.

If, during reading these pages you see a product that might solve a problem, don't rely on the historical data on this site but consult the modern equivalent on the Bostik web site.
