As I understand it the Germans were great advocates of magnetic mines so assumed that everyone else (eventually) would be so devised zimmerit as a defence. An example of the fundamental weakness of Fascist logic.

Polyvinyl acetate is just a fancy word for PVA, thus providing the liquid bonding agent to the zimmerit ;)

What I listed was the "official" ingredients from the zimmerit manufacturer Chemische Werke Zimmer & Co but that doesn't cover for stuff they perhaps mixed in with the goop to stretch the supplies?
They list PVA Jens, not PVA adhesive! PVA is a rubbery solid at normal temperatures.

Sorry boys, but this is getting a bit out of hand - and a tad heated!

It started off as a simple question by me as to what members thought of my zimmerit.

This is 'Critique Corner'. Can we leave it as that please.

If you chaps want to discuss the chemical composition, the merits or not of the paste etc., can you please start a new thread away this one?

Thanks.

Ron

No need for an apology Pete.

Sometimes, in the heat of the moment, we simply forget which forum category the thread was posted in...... :upside:

We've all done it.....

Cheers.
Ron
