Jade® No. 403 (PVA)
Jade 403 sets the standard for PVA used in bookbinding, conservation, and fine art
applications. Commonly used for book and box making applications, adhering paper to paper,
cloth to wood, leather, filling in cracks in art canvases and repairing ceramic objects. Holds
firmly to plastic materials, and can be used on vellum. It can also be mixed with wheat paste
or methyl cellulose to slow down drying time. A general purpose, resin based, internally
plasticized polyvinyl acetate emulsion that contains no solvents.
Fast drying, very long lasting and forms a transparent, flexible film.
Jade is thermoplastic and can be also used to form a heat set adhesive.
Adhesive is water soluble when wet, and permanent when dry. pH neutral,

Single Face E-Flute Roll
The same outstanding archival properties of our stan-
dard Heritage Corrugated Boards, now available as a
single face corrugated roll.
Single face corrugated is a versatile packaging, cushion-
ing and wrapping material that can be used in a wide
range of applications. Since single face corrugated is
soft and flexible, it can be used for wrapping 3-D ob-

great cushioning material for those wanting to avoiding
foams with questionable long term stability.
