Paints containing glue derived from animal hide

Q: I want to purchase some paints, but they contain glue made from animal hide. I’m not sure what animal and I also do not know whether they were slaughtered in the halaal manner. Will the paints be najis and impermissible to use?

A: It will be pure as long as it is not from swine.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
