UHU is a brand of glue
s produced in Germany
. According to their website (www.uhu.de), the South German chemist August Fischer
invented the first synthetic resin adhesive
in the world, in 1932. It doesn't say if this dude
went on start the UHU brand and company but that's probably what happened.
The UHU products that I'm most familiar with are the UHU glue stick, and the standard glue that comes in a tube. The latter looks like a clear jell and is a pretty decent adhesive. I used to eat that stuff when I was a kid. Don't ask me why.
