Product information

Suitable for a variety of jobs including: bonding agent, adhesive, sealer, cement and plaster admixture.

  • 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 (allow 24 hours to achieve maximum strength). 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. Apply while the PVA is still tacky. 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. For large areas dilute 3 parts PVA with 1 part water and brush onto the surface to be repaired. Apply the normal render mix before the emulsion dries. As a filler/plaster admixture: Dilute 1 part PVA to 1 part water and add to mix in place of water.
