Source for Mowilith sought

From: Stephanie Baily <sbaily>

We are trying to find a supplier of Mowilith DMC2 or DM427 within
Australia. All our past suppliers are saying that  this adhesive is
no longer imported into the country, and  it has been replaced with
locally made PVAs. The problem is that we can't  make real sense of
( we are not polymer chemists after all) the technical data that
relates to these equivalent adhesives (our primary use is box
making). Is it the  amount of plasticisers that we should be worried
about, or is it simply the pH of the emulsion? If Mowilith is no
longer available, does anyone know of an archival PVA or EVA that is
available? In addition does anybody know of any good recent
literature that discusses the pros and cons and ins and outs of PVA
and EVA? Any help would be really appreciated.
