Application Tips

Surface Preparation:
Surfaces must be clean, dry and structurally sound.

Product Application:
Cut nozzle at a 45° angle to desired size. Puncture inner seal with nail or wire and continue as directed below.

Cabinets and countertops:
Apply a 1/4" bead to contact areas on the back of cabinets or counter tops. Press firmly into place. Mechanical fasteners must also be used for installing wall cabinets.

Materials to furring strips or studs:
Apply zigzag 1/4" bead to each strip or stud to be covered by panel. Position panel so edges meet at stud center; only severely warped materials require finishing nails at top and bottom.

Apply zigzag 1/4" bead to joists. Position planks and secure with mechanical fasteners.

Use mineral spirits or an adhesive remover.
