PVA Adhesive

Acid free (pH neutral) bookbinding adhesive. We are very proud of the quality of our adhesive and of our bottles. We pay a little extra for an easy-pour top which can be cut down to pour at the rate that you want. No little dishes lying around with dried up adhesive in the bottom!

  • No solvents
  • pH neutral

We cannot guarantee PVA if it freezes so we recommend not purchasing it outside California between November 1st and April 1st. If you order it we will ship it, we just can’t guarantee it.




Polyvinyl Acetate:
A general purpose, resin based, internally plasticized polyvinyl acetate emulsion that contains no solvents. It is fast drying, very long lasting and forms a transparent, flexible film. It is thermoplastic and can be also used to form a heat set adhesive. Used for tightening books in their cases, adhering paper to paper, cloth to wood, filling in cracks in art canvases and repairing ceramic objects. Holds firmly to plastic materials. Can be used on vellum. Very useful for patching tears in paintings and reinforcing the bend at edges of paintings. In very dilute form can secure fraying threads. Good wash-up properties; pH neutral.

Note: PVA will last much longer if you keep the cap on and keep your brush out. Either use our squirt bottle (5 and 8 oz. bottles), or pour just what you need into a separate dish, and then throw away any leftovers.
