About this deal

The sticky substance was actually a by-product of an experiment by a Bostik worker to make a new sealant. Clean and safe, the Blue Tack Dot Glue is very useful for all kinds of crafts, gluing paper, cardboard, wood or plastic, wrapping gifts, gluing photos in albums, etc. In the United Kingdom in March 2008, 20,000 numbered packs of pink Blu Tack were made available, to help raise money for Breast Cancer Campaign, [6] with 10 pence from each pack going to the charity.

It's clean, safe and easy to use and provides an ideal alternative to drawing pins or sticky tape, with over a thousand uses around the home, office or school. Some individuals (particularly those with heavy oral needs and aggressive biting/chewing) may be able to damage the tools in a very short space of time. If a room or surface conditions are too hot (over 70°C), Blu Tack® will soften and become more difficult to secure items in place.

Fast forward over 50 years and hundreds of millions of packs of Blu Tack® have been sold throughout the UK and beyond - making it the nation's favourite reusable adhesive. At GLS, we are pleased to offer a wide range of Blu Tack and other adhesive tack options that we believe are essential to have on hand. Like all poster putties, Blu Tack provides an alternative to the artist's traditional kneaded eraser. Suitable to hold up posters, support wobbly tables, and clean fluff from fabric and dirt from your keyboard.

White tack, for example, is designed to reduce residue after things have been stuck together for a while. This can be removed using removers like citrus oils and lighter fuel but as per the guidance of the suppliers.Designed for use around the office and school to stick up posters, pictures and other lightweight items on walls or other surfaces. The adhesive properties of Bostik Blu Tack® increase over time, so take extra care when removing it after a period of months. Today, Bostik's factory in Leicester continues to produce tonnes of Blu Tack® every week - for decades, the recipe has been kept a closely guarded secret. Blu Tack® Colour can be used on all the same surfaces as the Blu Tack® original, but its best suited to craft projects - see some ideas below! Blu Tack® Colour has all the features of the original reusable adhesive, however is primarily designed to mold and play.

Blu Tack is a reusable putty-like pressure-sensitive adhesive produced by Bostik, commonly used to attach lightweight objects (such as posters or sheets of paper) to walls, doors or other dry surfaces. The composition is described as a synthetic rubber compound without hazardous properties under normal conditions. How long each tool lasts depends on the oral sensory needs of the child, whether or not they are seeing an occupational therapist if needed, as well as many other variables in his/her life. It is known as "Patafix" in France, Italy, Portugal, Austria and Turkey, Kennaratyggjó in Iceland and lærertyggis in Norway (both meaning "teacher's chewing gum"), Häftmassa ("attachment paste") or kludd in Sweden, and wondergom in South Africa (an Afrikaans word, literally translated as "wonder glue").

It is a permanently plastic, reusable multipurpose adhesive and modelling material that is pliable and non-toxic, making it safe for all the family. In 2007 the artist Elizabeth Thompson created a 200 kg (440 lb) sculpture of a house spider using Blu Tack over a wire frame. Not only useful around the home and school, but Blu-Tack is also a favourite sensory toy for many children who like the texture and the resistance when pulling apart. Do not use on recently decorated surfaces or absorbent, silk-screen printed or hand stencilled wallpaper. Did you know, despite numerous appeals from Bostik for the inventor to step forward, the mastermind behind the product has remained a mystery for over 50 years?
