Adhesives PVA Timber

If you’re a construction connoisseur or just a crafting enthusiast, PVA glue is probably something you’ve come across before. Polyvinyl Acetate glues are one of the most common glues across the board, providing a quick solution to getting two items glued together with a powerful bond.

Found as wood glues, craft glue or white glue, PVA glue is often more of a catch-all category name. There are many different types of PVA glues ranging in strength and material type. Standard PVA glues can be found in most homes, used to bind paper or cardboard. Stronger PVA glues are often used in woodworking or carpentry as they are designed to absorb and bond with the porous materials.

PVA glues are a fantastic adhesive on materials and surfaces that are particularly permeable and porous, such as timber and wood materials and leather. These glues will dry with a stronger bond and durability as the glue has absorbed into the product.

These glues are often water-soluble, making them great for crafts or cleaning up if a mess has been made. Being water-soluble means that if the product needs diluting or to be added in thin layers (think - papier mâché) it can. However, this makes the product not necessarily moisture or water resistant.

When dry, PVA glues are semi-rigid and provide flexibility and movement, such as on joinery, cabinets and craft projects. Many PVA based glues are suitable for interior woodworking due to their ability to be sanded and painted over.
