How to Add PVA Glue to Mortar

PVA adhesive is useful in many scenarios in which you apply a certain coating to an existing surface. It helps the surface remain workable while you skim it for a longer time because the PVA adhesive prevents the coating over it from drying too quickly.

PVA glue or adhesive also allows for a stronger and longer-lasting bond between the existing surface and the coating you apply. One such use is the preparation for the application of plaster on top of a skimmed mortar structure.

Mix two parts PVA glue with one part water in a bucket.

Dip a paint roller into your mixture and allow it to absorb some of the PVA mix.

Paint a coat of PVA glue mixture evenly on your applied mortar. Allow the mixture to dry. You know when PVA glue dries when it is no longer white.
