It could have been on the merchants cold concrete floor as well.

Does PVA have a date on it then?  I've never noticed one.

It could have been on the merchants shelf a year before you buy it?

Me neither. I'd better start glueing stuff together quick before this large tub of PVA goes off.

polyvinyl acetate
A vinyl resin, one of the clear, water-white, thermoplastic synthetic resins produced from its monomer by emulsion polymerization. Polyvinyl acetate, abbreviated PVA , has the advantage over the other resinous adhesives in that it is available in the form of an emulsion that is readily diluted with water, is easily applied, and is safe to use because it contains no flammable solvents. In addition, there is no need to use preservatives or fungicides because it does not deteriorate quickly and is unaffected by mold or fungi. The emulsion does slowly hydrolyze, however, and should not be stored for more than one or two years before use. Freezing also destroys the emulsion; therefore, precautions must be taken to avoid exposing it to temperatures near or below the freezing point.

That way I will no longer be boring at parties.  If things get a little slow I shall just say "Anyone interested in PVA?"..................

[quote author=sailfishoney  link=1128333989/0#4 date=1128393944]What is PVA? I here that so much on the forums. [/quote]

It's a type of water based glue. Typically used for gluing wood or paper. Usually white but dries almost clear in thin layers. Not all types are waterproof so best used indoors.

At the end of the day (as they say) it is a water based glue.  Many people think that you can use it to seal new plaster prior to painting, which is of course wrong, as it will form a skin and the plaster will not be able to 'breathe'. The paint will then sit on top instead of soaking into the plaster.

Some people seal old plaster with it (diluted) prior to hanging wallpaper. Personaly I have never done this so will not comment on it's efficacy.

I believe the wet trades bang some in their muck as a binding agent, other trades will no doubt comment on that.

I never use the stuff as I don't think it has any use for a decorator.

Bye the way Cait, I have always thought PVA stood for Poly Vinyl Acetate, but I could be wrong on that.  Undecided
