Application Tips

This product sets up quickly, yet allows repositioning for up to 20 minutes after application. Allow approximately 24 hours for the adhesive to dry.

For Carpeting: Apply a bead of adhesive to carpet back to keep loose edges down. Use sparingly for easy carpet removal later on.

Ceramic and other tile: For decorative tiles, wall inlay panels or cork tiles, apply 3 or 4 ribbons of adhesive to wall and press tile into place. Heavy tile may require bracing for 24

Wood: Apply a bead of adhesive to the back of trim and press into place. For wood strips, apply 2 ribbons of adhesive to the back of each strip and press into place.

Drywall: To serve as a backing for drywall patches, adhere strips of wood 3” (7.6 cm) longer than the hole, behind the opening with adhesive and allow to dry 24 hours. Use LN 700 adhesive to affix properly sized patch to the wood backing strips and finish edges in the conventional manner.

Countertops: Peeling countertops can be secured by applying LN-700 to base and pressing firmly. Use a clamp to temporarily hold the countertop in place.

Vinyl cove base: Apply 2 beads of adhesive to back and press firmly to wall.

Shelving: Apply a bead of adhesive to back of brackets. Press brackets firmly against wall. Pull assembly apart and let air-dry for 5–8 minutes, allowing the adhesive to set. Press brackets back into place and hold with masking tape for 48 hours.

Use water for wet adhesive. Use mineral spirits or an adhesive remover for dry adhesive.
