Frequently Asked Questions

EVO-STIK General Purpose PVA is white before use, but it dries to a transparent film.

No - it would initially work, but PVA has low wear resistance. It will also turn hazy white every time it gets wet.

No - it may leave areas with a sealed and shiny finish. Paint may then not be absorbed into those areas and could peel off. Instead, use a primer that’s recommended by the paint manufacturer.
