Adhesive based on Vinyl Acetate

Polyvinyl acetate (PVA, PVAc, poly (ethenyl ethanoate)), commonly known in the United States as wood glue, white glue, carpenter’s glue, school glue, or Elmer glue, is a widely available adhesive for porous materials, like wood, paper. and fabric. A rubber-like aliphatic synthetic polymer with the molecular formula (C4H6O2) n, belonging to the family of polyvinyl esters, and the general formula – [RCOOCHCH2] -. It is a thermoplastic. Polyvinyl acetate is the main chemical component of PVA, discovered in 1912 by the German Fritz Klatte. The resulting glue does not emit dangerous odors or fumes and is very safe to operate with bare hands
