Building Chemicals

Building Chemicals are a crucial part of most building projects and are useful for a wide range of applications. Some of the building chemicals we have on offer at Howarth Timber & Building Supplies includes: 


PVA Bond is a multi-purpose bonding agent. It adheres to most common building materials where at least one surface is porous. PVA Bond can also be used to prime surfaces prior to plastering or painting, as a sealer or as an admixture. 

Additives & Admixtures 

Additives and Admixtures are an extra ingredient added to concrete; alongside the aggregate, cement, and water; to improve its properties. 

Jointing Compounds 

Jointing Compounds are a powder that is mixed with water to seal and repair joints in paving, stone and brickwork. 

Cleaning Chemicals 

Cleaning Chemicals are a surface treatment used to remove ingrain dirt and anything that looks unsightly or could be damaging such as fungus and car oil. 


Waterproofing is used on paving and mortars to prevent water from penetrating and causing long term damage.
