PREPARATION OF GLUE OR GELATINE
Definition statement
This subclass/group covers:

Pre-treatment of collagen-containing raw materials for the manufacture of glue or gelatine from raw materials, e.g. by extracting or by heating.

Stabilisation of solutions of glue or gelatine.

Preparation of water-insoluble gelatine.

Drying of glue or gelatine.

Glue or gelatine products per se resulting from the above-mentioned methods, e.g. stabilized or granular gelatine, if no o

ther group for the produced compound exists.

Relationship between large subject matter areas
  • Gelatine per se (for more recent technologies) is classified in C08H 1/06.
  • Compositions based on gelatine are classified in C08L 89/06;
  • Coating compositions based on gelatine are classified in C09D 189/06.
  • Adhesives based on gelatine are classified in C09J 189/06;

Multiple classification;

  • Obtaining protein compositions for foodstuffs from hair, feathers, horn, skins, leather or bones is also classified in A23J 1/10;
  • Foods or foodstuffs are also classified in A23L 1/00.
