Default Elmer's Glue????

I heard some time back that one of the paper-backed fusibles was actually Elmer's Glue. Has anyone else heard that and do you know which brand it is?

Never heard that claim before. I have used Heat n Bond lite for many years but never thought about who makes the fusible used in this product.

There are only so many glue manufacturers. There isn't a manufacturing plant for every glue brand. I would think the manufacturer would make the glue products to fit the order. Same glue just different types of formulas per brand.

Never heard that, but it must be a different formula than the regular glue if it is. The liquid Elmer's glue I purchase would not work for heat n bond.

Sounds like another "urban myth". Of course, even Elmer's Glue comes in more than one variety -- check it out!

Elmers does have permanent glue, but cannot be used for washable fabric projects. The water soluble Elmers could never be used in fusibles, since it would wash out. This is a myth.

All a product company has to do is tell the manufacturer we want this type of glue on this product. Elmer's is a brand name.
Anyway Elmer's is owned by Newell Rubbermaid. Who owns Rubbermaid, Sharpie, Papermate, Parker, Waterman, Graco, Calphalon, Goody, Lenox, and Levolor. Interesting.

I love Freezer paper. I make my own printable fabric with it and can use it several times, before I lose the sticky.
