Do you have any idea what Bragdon's adhesive might be?

My understanding is that Bragdon’s has an adhesive mixed in which is activated by pressure. Rubbing the powder generates the required pressure.
To my knowledge no other weathering powders have any kind of binder or adhesive.

Can anyone tell me what the binder is in weathering powders? What is the substance that makes the powders stick when rubbed? Onto a steam era freight car.
