    I'm just about to lay a 13mm t&g floating timber floor and have a huge tub of Super PVA glue (made by Unibond)that I bought a while back.

    The question is, can I use this or should I be using a waterproof glue. I noticed SF sells a flooring PVA, whats the difference? My old man says all PVA is waterproof when dry?

    The floor will continoue through an open plan kitchen but not the bathroom.

    Thanks for the info.

    tell your old man (politly of course to ....go back to school)as there are so many different types of poly-vynal adhesive, different mixes, concentrates, etc..etc.etc.etc
    and there are about 15-18 types that even when totally dry and have been for months will soften and dilute when wet again...so as long as it has ""D3"" on the bottle some where it is suitable for the laminate flooring..
    okay dokay.....

    Hey wolf,

    I've been using PVA to seal worktop joints / bath panel (laminated MDF) cuts - how long will standard PVA remain waterproof in a wet situation? I'm using Travis Perkins own brand 5l container.

    Simple answer...glue two bits of wood together and when dry stick them in the bath for about 13n3/4 min

    If the glue is more than a few months old, don't use it.

    If you want to seal worktop joints etc use Extramite
