Re: Adhesive and tyvek



Hi Lavinia,
Did you let it dry enough?  Try using a tacking iron to readhere it to the
paper (if you don't have a tacking iron, just use a regular iron with a mild
setting and no steam).  The dry  PVA will act like a fusion-heat activated
adhesive.
I have a binding I made laminating 2 pieces of Tyvek together from about 8
years ago and and it hasn't separated yet.  I hope this helps.
