pegamento


Explanation:
I think this is much better, in Mexico I've never heard people referring to it as "cola", pegamento escolar would fit better, I think this is the standard Spanish word.
Hope it helps

cola o pegamento


Explanation:
En España, la cola es normalmente una sustancia blanca que se usa para papel y madera; así tenmemos 'cola de madera' y 'cola escolar'. Despues, hay el pegamento, que suele ser más fuerte (incluso el olor), y se usa para pegar cosas como de cerámica, etc.

Mis referencias son mis trabajos en madera, mis trabajos con niños y mi tendencia a romper cosas de valor sentimental!
