Surfaces must be clean, dry, structurally sound and free of loose paint or other materials. Sand and roughen high-gloss paint.
1. Cut nozzle at a 45° angle to a 1/8" bead size. 2. Puncture inner seal with wire or nail. Apply in a continuous 1/4" bead, following the tub surround manufacturer's instructions. Important for proper installation: It is recommended that each panel be "vented." Venting method: Apply adhesive, press panel firmly to wall, then pull away. Wait 3 to 5 minutes, then press back firmly into place. After 20 to 30 minutes, again press firmly over all flat surfaces of tub surround to ensure proper adhesion. If edges lift up, tape to wall with masking tape until adhesive dries. Product can be used as a caulk for edges of tub surrounds and at tub and surround interface, and between surround panels. Caulking may be done immediately after installation of surround.
Let dry for 24 hours prior to use. Foamback tub surrounds should be braced for at least 48 hours.
Use water for wet adhesive. Use mineral spirits applied to cloth for removal of dried adhesive.
