HOW TO USE
- Always open and use our PVA adhesive over a protected work surface
- Ensure the surfaces to which Bostik PVA Glue is to be applied are clean and dry
- Twist the blue part of the nozzle anti-clockwise, then gently squeeze the PVA glue bottle and spread the glue onto one or both surfaces
- For non-absorbent surfaces such as plastic, allow the glue to dry for a few minutes before pressing the surfaces together
- After use, turn the nozzle clockwise to stop the glue from drying out
How to remove PVA Glue
Any excess glue can be removed by using a damp cloth and wiping it away before it dries. You can also wash PVA Glue out of clothes using warm soapy water, ideally before the adhesive is dry.
If the glue has dried, you should remove as much of the glue as possible before soaking the stain in cold water overnight. Then, take the fabric from the water and massage a laundry detergent into the stain - using gloves to protect the skin if necessary. To finish, wash in the washing machine as normal.

What is the shelf life of the adhesive I have bought and where can I store it?
The shelf life of adhesives varies from product to product, but typically ranges between one and two years from the date of manufacture when unopened and stored correctly in dry conditions - usually between +5°C and +25°C. Once opened, the life of the product will be more limited – this is dictated by variables including the type of adhesive, how it is stored, and how much adhesive is left unused.
