One of our sister directories, the Hucclecote Link is celebrating 11 years of being in circulation this month, this is a great achievement, and makes me very proud.

To the business owners for putting your trust into the Link Directories, to my great team of distributors who ensure that you receive your copies regularly and to YOU the reader, for picking up the phone and using the fantastic local businesses that we have in the directories. Without your support all of our businesses would struggle, so Thank You This month sees us celebrate 2 bank holidays, which is always a good excuse to catch up with friends and families, but also an English tradition for us to use the time to try our hand at DIY!

Dave’s Top Tips PVA adhesive

PVA or Polyvinyl Acetate is, in its simplest form, glue for sticking pieces of paper together. One step up the ladder, and a little stronger, it becomes an excellent wood glue for Diy enthusiasts and joiners alike. In its extreme form it becomes an extremely versatile, waterproof adhesive and sealer, which has an extraordinary number of uses in the building trade. PVA can be added to a cement mortar mix to give the mix slightly better waterproofing qualities and advanced adhesion to the surface it is applied to. 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 can also be used to allow ceramic tiles to stick to timber (bath panels etc). At least 3 coats of undiluted PVA are required and each coat must dry thoroughly before the next is applied. Regards Dave Stevens. If in doubt call me (see main advert for number) and I will do the investigating for you. Disclaimer. All advice above is given in goodwill with many years experience. We cannot guarantee however that your problems will be rectified so please, if in doubt call us before undertaking any works yourself
