Matt, When dissimilar materials are used and the harder or less pliable is used on the surface, delaminating usually occurs. If the PVA were to be used, I would recommend that the PVA be incorporated with the base material even in the final topical coating. Even diluted PVA mixed with the second to last layer helps make the bond much stronger. SANCO Enterprises, LLC Paul Salas, General Manager P.O.
