Woodworking & school craft

We’re proud to supply adhesives specifically into the Woodworking & School Craft market. For more than 20 years, we have manufactured high quality Water Based PVA adhesives for extreme and unique applications, some of which are supplied into very specialist industries. This colourless, odourless adhesive doesn’t yellow over time nor does it give off nasty fumes – it dries clear, making it an excellent choice for Woodworking & School Craft applications.

A safe pair of hands

We test the PVAs we produce to ensure that they conform to the relevant specific criteria. Acquiring Crispin Adhesives in 2003 boosted our supply, particularly into the Ministry of Defence. Today we produce the same Water Based Adhesives in line with the Defence Standard set out by our customers.

Our range of Water Based Contact Adhesives also complements the Solvent Based systems that we supply into the footwear industry. Traditionally used as a socking adhesive, our latex adhesives remain popular. In addition, our high quality Water Based Contact Adhesives are used for both temporary or permanent bonding of sole inners prior to stitching.

Expanding and diversifying

Our acquisition of Fosse Polymers in 2005 put a new dimension on our range of PVA adhesives. We not only diversified into supplying different grades of PVA but also expanded into new markets. This included Arts & Crafts and own label PVAs and Latex adhesives in small and large containers for customers working in the education market sector. All our Craft PVA adhesives are produced to the highest quality and are EN71 approved.

The PVA glues we supply into the Art & Craft, Educational market continue to go from strength to strength. Our Multi-purpose PVA and Washable PVA remain flagship products.

Developing our Clear PVA adhesive has proved to be a real winner in the marketplace. More customers are seeking a versatile adhesive to experiment with for their craft ideas – not to mention the current craze of making slime!
