Anyone has to use glue. The most suitable and convenient is the Moment glue. Since Soviet times, it has established itself as one of the best gluing materials. Its scope and purpose are very different. The brand "Moment" was developed by Henkel, which was created back in the 19th century back in 1876.
A bit of history
The company's goal is to improve the quality characteristics of products in the field of household and construction chemicals. Henkel has a great reputation in the world for its wide and high quality product range. Until the end of the seventies of the XX century, the Soviet Union was forced to buy glue from abroad. It was only in 1979 that a domestic manufacturer of the Moment brand appeared in our country.
The production of a line of adhesive products was taken over in 1991 by the Tosno plant in the Leningrad region. In 1994, the plant acquired the Moment glue trademark as a full property. In the manufacture of products, exclusively German technology is used. From the very beginning of production to this day, the products of the plant have no competition among other manufacturers and deservedly occupy a leading position in the market.

Nowadays, there are more than 100 brands of adhesives of this brand. They are produced by contact, second, wallpaper, stationery, epoxy. They are conveniently shaped for ease of operation. They are sold in the form of adhesive tape, as sealants, in the form of alkaline batteries. It is almost impossible to list all the options.
