It’s all in the mix


all in the mixAccording to Franklin, its Advantage FJ-1 breaks ground as a one-part PVA (polyvinyl acetate) wood adhesive that passes the ASTM 5572-95 (2012) wet-use test for finger joints. This product is designed to provide high water resistance in a ready-to-use PVA product. PVA adhesives that achieve a similar level of water resistance for finger-jointing applications typically are two-part. One-part formulation offers several benefits, including the saving of time otherwise lost to pre-mixing components, as well as preventing injury from the handling of an acid catalyst and improper mixing.
