Application Tips

Insert tube into caulking gun. Cut nozzle to desired bead size marked on nozzle. Puncture inner seal with nail or wire. Apply adhesive in temperature of 60°F or higher. Press material into place. Lift off for 2-4 minutes, then press back into place. Material should not be applied to skinned adhesive. Do not apply to moist concrete or masonry.
Note: One surface must be porous.

Bonding material to furring strips or studs:  Apply a zigzag 1/4" bead of adhesive to each strip or stud to be covered by material. Position materials so edges meet at stud center. Press firmly into place. Finishing nails required at top and bottom.

Bonding foamboard, foamback tub surrounds, paneling, corkboard, brick veneer, etc. to flat surfaces:  Cover entire substrate with 1/4" vertical zig-zag bead a maximum of 12" apart and within 1-1/2" of all edges.
