About this deal

This gives it the best adhesion and because it has yet to dry and become totally waterproof, will still allow the natural porosity of the surface to assist in drying out the mix you are using. Concrete sealers combat this problem by essentially sealing the concrete from moisture and locking in the crumbly surface of the concrete. You will not be able to remove all the dust although and the more you brush the more dust will naturally release from concrete so don’t worry this will be fine when you come to apply the PVA solution.

Some of our partners may process your data as a part of their legitimate business interest without asking for consent. It won’t take long but it’s best to leave it overnight so leave at least 12hours but it’s best to leave about 24 hours to ensure that all the sealer has completely dried into the concrete. For example, when plastering over an existing artex ceiling the moisture in the plaster would be soaked up so quickly that the plaster would be rock hard in minutes and getting a smooth finish would be impossible. While specialised concrete sealers have their benefits this article is about PVA and sealing a concrete floor with PVA so we’ll try and stay on topic. An important point to make is If the surface you are working on is external and likely to be washed with rain regularly, PVA is not the best product to use.If the PVA is dry, the surface will not be able to "suck up" any of the moisture in the mix and it will take longer to dry. To view the purposes they believe they have legitimate interest for, or to object to this data processing use the vendor list link below. PVA can be added to a cement mortar mix to give the mix a) slightly better waterproofing qualities and b) advanced adhesion to the surface it is applied to. For more info, check out the ‘ Taping and Jointing‘ section in our guide to plasterboarding brick walls. You can scrape it off for a smooth surface, If you are finding it hard to remove paint marks or blotches then you will need to use a paint stripper before moving onto the next step.

PVA sealer is an extremely versatile, odourless, waterproof and non-toxic adhesive that is suitable for a multitude of tasks and requirements. In its extreme, big boy/girl form it becomes an extremely versatile, waterproof adhesive and sealer, which has an extraordinary number of uses in the building trade.If you would like to change your settings or withdraw consent at any time, the link to do so is in our privacy policy accessible from our home page.

Sealing the surface with PVA slows down this moisture absorption and allows the plaster to remain workable for longer. Painting a coat of PVA on the surface before the cement mortar is applied can even further increase this adhesion.Timber can be sealed with PVA to give it a waterproof quality, although if the surface of the timber is to be subject to any wear or traffic, then PVA, as it is an emulsion, will eventually fail. PVA also acts as a bonding agent, so applying a coat of PVA before plastering helps bond plaster to walls. There are specialised concrete sealers available and if you are worried about sealing a concrete floor with PVA then invest in a proper sealer.

Polyvinyl acetate, (PVA) is a multi-purpose chemical compound that has a large application base and is the ingredient in many compounds that are used around the home DIY industry.Apply the PVA sealer with either a soft broom brush if you have a large surface to apply and finish the edges off with a small paintbrush. Have a look at the final job and if there are patches missing or it seems like it didn’t take properly then apply a second sealer coat of PVA and wait for it to dry. For external use we recommend using SBR Bond which is much stronger and also stable in Freeze-Thaw conditions.
