Synthetic Resins - Polyvinyl Acetate (PVA)
Polyvinyl Acetate (PVA) is a synthetic resin. When it is prepared as an
emulsion, it serves as the principal ingredient of many milky white
glues sold under such names as Elmer's Glue-All (Borden Chemical Co.)
and Duratite White Glue (D. A. P., Inc.). These products are widely
used in the industrial trades as adhesives for wood, paper, and other
materials. They are liquid at room temperature and do not require
heating in a glue pot. The glue may be thinned with water, and it forms
films that are flexible, clear, and water resistant. It is neither
toxic nor flammable.
Especially pure grades of these polyvinyl acetate emulsions are
manufactured under such names as Everflex (W. R. Grace & Co.) BG or
Polyco (Bordon Chemical Co.) 2113 or 2151. For more than thirty years
artists have been using polyvinyl acetate emulsions as binders for
paint and gesso (page 201). In addition these emulsions have been
employed as adhesives to attach paper, textiles, or other materials to
a support surface. [pp. 37-38]
