sorry iam a newbe i guess and i want to know what is PVA glue? :blink:
PVA glue is what is known in the states as Elmers white glue.
"Da Orks is da best cuz we ar ded ard an killy, mean, green, krumpin machines, hav da most dakka, da stompiest dreads, da shootiest gunz, da biggest bosses, an we uze choppas...WAAAGH!"
ok good every one says PVA glue thatnks
Anyone else wanna add to this one?
To say it's simply PVA glue is sometimes not good enough. Does anyone out there have an idea of what the stuff is capable of besides being used in scenery making and decoration of model bases?
I have a slight suspicion that the stuff is the same as we in Scandinavia would call "School glue"
Or more precisely "Skolelim"
Can anyone please correct me here or something?
yeah its the same, i would save myself money by buying a bottle of school glue for 1 dollar than whatever it is for the stuff from gw

Yeah I think I came to that same conclusion myself.
The place I usually by my modeling stuff sells the GW PVA glue fairly cheaply, but another place I lookd they wanted like 20$ for a standard GW bottle... bloodprice if you ask me!
ButI'll have a look on saturday, the stores should be open by then again...
It stands for PolyVinyl Acrylate, i think.
It's not Raymond Luxury Yacht, It's pronounced throat wobbler mangrove.

FLASH from the glue geek
Poly(vinyl acetate), or PVA for short, is a vinyl polymer, as if you couldn't guess from the name. It's made by free radical vinyl polymerization of the monomer vinyl acetate.
Vinyl polymers are polymers made from vinyl monomers; that is, small molecules containing carbon-carbon double bonds. They make up largest family of polymers. Let's see how we get from a vinyl monomer to a vinyl polymer using for an example the simplest vinyl polymer, polyethylene. Polyethylene is made from the monomer ethylene, which is also called ethene. When polymerized, the ethylene molecules are joined along the axes of their double bonds, to form a long chain of many thousands of carbon atoms containing only single bonds between atoms.
More sophisticated vinyl polymers are made from monomers in which one or more of the hydrogen atoms of ethylene have been replaced by another atom or groups of atoms. Let's see what we can do by replacing just one of those hydrogen atoms. We can get a number of common plastics: polypropylene, polystyrene (yeah! model plastic), poly vinyl chloride, and polytetrafluoroethylene, which DuPont makes and calls Teflon.
Hmm. Must be late :blink:
i never knew someone could tel so much over something as PVA.
where did you find all taht information?
are you a school teacher ore something?
Probably not, it's basic chemistry, anyone who has graduated should at least know stuff like this.
