Hide glue is available in various strengths, but as the strength of the glue increases, the amount of time you have to work with it shortens.
Our granular hide glue is a very strong one (rated 260g± Bloom strength) with a correspondingly short open time; it is good for uncomplicated assemblies where strength is of paramount importance.
Pearl hide glue, which also comes in dry form and is used the same way as granular, is not as strong (rated 150g± Bloom strength) but takes longer to gel. With the longer working time, it is better for applications like veneering where you need time to fit, but where high strength is not required.
