Polyvinyl acetate emulsions, or PVA's, are the most common example of adhesives that build strength as they dry.
PVA - Polyvinyl acetate - the basis of various types of adhesives, paints etc. Often used diluted as a stabilising solution on powdery surfaces.
PVA (Polyvinyl Acetate): A colorless, thermoplastic, water soluble, resinous high polymer
derived from the polymerization of vinyl acetate with a catalyst; used as a latex binder in certain,
generally lower quality water-base coatings.
PVA or drywall primers are inexpensive and high hiding. They provide a tight bond to new drywall, while providing a fairly opaque surface for your finish coat.
PVA glues have a "chalk temperature" of between 47F and 55F. depending upon the formulation. When the glue "chalks" it turns white as it dries and looses significant strength.
PVA should never be used with tile adhesive. A tiller's primer should be used, available from any good tile shop.
