PVA is a new interesting print material witch dissolves in water. Is´s great to use as a support material when you are printing with a dualextruder printer.

PVA is very sensitive to water and humidity. When not using the material you should always store in the sealable bag it comes in together with the Silica bag.
Polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH, PVA, or PVAL) is a water-soluble synthetic polymer hydrolysed from polyvinyl acetate.
PVA is fully degradable and is a quick dissolver. PVA has a glass transition temperature of around 85°C (185F), but this temperature depends on the polymer's degree of hydrolysation (ratio of alcohol groups to acetate groups)
