PVA IS IT SAFE TO USE .
Not much is spoken about pva apart from how good it is at helping us to
Katch karp it is. When we decided to go into the pva business we looked
around the globe at the different types of products available to us. There
were plenty of options open to us, but the product we finally settled on,
we feel was and has been justified, and After much reading on the subject,
believe that we have made the right choice, as we endevour to bring
an environmentally friendly product to the market place.
We have had nothing but good reports back on these bags that are
now being martketed.
Tests have been carried out on the raw material that this product is made
of, using overkill solutions. Fish were contained in tanks and different
levels of the product were introduced over a period of up to 96 hours.
ph levels remained constant 7.8 and although the dissolved oxygen
levels increased very very slightly, the captive fish remained in good
condition and fed regularly on loose feed, 14 hours of daylight a day
was the norm during the tests.
a quote from the manufacturing company
"Effluent solutions containing PVA film are attacked by micron-organisms
with the film decomposing to Carbon Dioxide and water. Exposure tests have
been carried out with concentrations of 1000mg of PVA per litre of water on the testing
fish (Brachydanio rerio) with no ill-effects, this being far in excess of possible
concentration in ground water systems."
Our pva will start to rupture at approx 8-9 secs which compared to some
on the market is not bad in fact I have tried other leading companies and ours
is certainly better and in some cases as good as in others.
When you read melt time 20 seconds or 30 seconds forget it. We
have sample bags that are 50 - 70 microns thickness and they
rupture at 15-20 seconds and believe me you wouldnt want to use
em for carp fishing. They are on about complete melt down times
Your bait, may on a very good day, get down up to ten feet,ish no
further I believe you may get a bit further down by using a double
bag, which is a good idea.
Rupture time, is when the bag ruptures, meaning once this has happened
bait will come out of the bag. and if it is still travelling to the bottom, it
will not arrive all in one piece. Hope this helps
So remember if anyone tells you different dont take no notice their
havin a laugh.
Also I have noticed somewhere somebody saying that
thicker bags are good for winter as they melt quicker in the colder water??????????
Right yea ...WHATEVER !!!!!! .
Pva will melt quicker in the summer in warmer water temperatures
and it will melt slower in the winter. So ideally you want a pva that
is not too thick so in the summer its gets you down to up 8 foot or so
and then in the winter 10 foot insnt too far out of the way. If you start
playing around too much you will end up with a bag that leaves a nice
bit of gunk around your line and will stay there for a long time to come.
Hvaing said all this I,ll leave it up to your imagination as to which
type of bags we sale..?????????????? I hope I have been of some help.

I think that the reports we have been getting back go to show that this product is
not only safe but indeed very effective . We have been selling this pva product
for only approximately just under three months . In this time we have sold
thousands of pva bags. Here as follows are a few fish that have been caught so
far using our bags, and to be honest It makes me personally feel very proud to be
part of the company, as our products already prooved to be and excellent
first class product, and we all feel that the sales will go from strength to
reports so far as carp are concerned are as per.
the top fish weight wise come in at 42lbs and 47lbs not bad
