Elmer's glues are chemical-based. No animals or animal parts are used to make Elmer's glues. The glues are formulated from synthesized chemicals, which come originally from petroleum, natural gas and other raw natural materials. Most glue formulas contain polymers, which are large molecules that are often described as a long molecular strand. Some polymers are naturally sticky. However, some polymers require other ingredients called tackifiers to make the glue sticky.
