Product information

    • Guarantee - Statutory
    • Neat = 6-12m²/L, Diluted 1:1 = 16-24m²/L, Diluted 1:3 = 18-36m²/L, Diluted 1:4 = 24-48m²/L
    • Store in original container in a cool, dry place within the temperature range 5°C to 25°C and out of direct sunlight. Protect from frost.
    • As an adhesive: Apply PVA to both surfaces then join together whilst PVA is still wet/tacky. Joints should be clamped together to prevent movement until the bond is formed. Primer or sealer: For sealing porous substrates (old concrete, plaster, plasterboard) dilute 1 part PVA with 4 parts water and brush onto surface. Bonding: When applying plaster, use the PVA neat and brush onto surface prior to plastering. As a cement Admixture: For small cement renders combine PVA with an equal amount of water and add to the mortar mix to improve adhesion and tensile strength of the cured render. As a filler/plaster admixture: Dilute 1 part PVA to 1 part water and add to mix in place of water.
