Millinery Stiffener/PVA - AU
THIS WATER BASED CROSSLINK POLY VINYL ALCOHOL (PVA) IS ABLE TO BE SHIPPED.
Poly Vinyl Alcohol (PVA) is waterbased and non-toxic
The PVA is High Strength which has greater than one part Crosslink PVA so makes a high solids content which means it has greater strength when stiffening and can be diluted 1:4 or 1:5 ratio. It is non-flammable and non-toxic so it is safe to use and easily transported. This stiffener is used in Millinery for all Straws and felts. It is highly recommended that a small sample/area is tested first before applying stiffener to the entire area to be treated.
For those who want to stiffen thicker materials such as wool or fur felt, you may want to consider diluting the stiffener further to ensure the liquid can easily soak into the material.
