Unveiling the Enigma: The Intriguing Story Behind Blu Tack®

For more than five decades, the identity of Blu Tack®'s ingenious creator has remained veiled in mystery, despite Bostik's persistent appeals for their revelation. The captivating origin of this versatile adhesive traces back to an accidental by-product of a Bostik worker's attempt to create a new sealant. Although the initial endeavor ended in failure, the serendipitous discovery of the resulting 'goo' sparked a new wave of creativity as colleagues playfully used it to affix messages to desks.

Recognizing the potential of this newfound substance, Bostik embarked on a journey to amplify its impact. Scaling up the manufacturing process, they transformed a chance experiment into a household name. Over the course of more than 50 years, Blu Tack® has established itself as a beloved staple, gracing countless homes in the UK and beyond.

Behind the scenes, Bostik's factory in Leicester remains a hub of innovation and production, churning out tonnes of Blu Tack® each week. This enduring success story is underscored by the well-kept secret recipe that has tantalizingly eluded the public eye for decades.

Embark on a journey through time and invention, and unravel the remarkable tale that culminated in Blu Tack® becoming a cherished, nation-favorite reusable adhesive.
