A brochure describing Hercules Powder Company products used to advance the industrial products and processes of manufacturers. Discusses Hercules resins, cellulose products, rubber-testing techniques, and terpenes. Illustrated with a series of colorful cartoons. Includes racially-stereotyped imagery of a snake-charmer, a trope used to exoticize South Asian cultures.
Formed in 1912 as part of an anti-trust settlement with DuPont, the Hercules Powder Company (later Hercules Inc.) initially specialized in the manufacture of explosives and smokeless powders and subsequently diversified its business to encompass a variety of industrial products, including pine and paper chemicals, synthetics, pigments, polymers, and cellulose.
