Application Guidelines

Bonds:
FRP (fiber reinforced plastic), wood, foamboard, plastic, laminate, treated fire rated and pressure treated plywood, tub surrounds, metal (galvanized and stainless steel), concrete, vinyl, PVC, painted surfaces, treated and untreated drywall and most other porous and non-porous building materials
For Best Results:
Before installation it is important to wipe down all metals with acetone if an oily residue is present as residue can deter adhesion. When bonding two non-porous substrates together, particularly in low humidity climates, it is recommended to lightly mist the wall substrate with water just before applying panel. Panels that do not lay flat or are heavier in weight may require at least 24 hours of blocking and bracing or permanent mechanical fasteners. If the wall is painted, be sure the paint is stable and bonded well enough to the wall to support the panels. If applying adhesive over plastered, or seal coated surfaces, please contact Technical Service at 1.800.347.4583.
Preparation:
Surfaces must be free of any material that may deter adhesion, including severe and thick amounts of drywall joint compound. Patch holes and depressions and remove any bumps, high spots, dust, oil, and grease. Cut and pre-fit all panels. Lay panels flat and let them acclimate to room temperature 24 hours before installing.
Application:
  1. Lay panels to be adhered on a flat, stable working surface.
  2. Hold pouch on end and rest on working surface. Snip the top tie off clip then squeeze adhesive onto the back of the panel. One pouch covers one 4’ x 8’ panel. A plastic putty knife can be used to push out excess adhesive stuck in the pouch.
  3. Spread adhesive over the entire back of panel using either a 3/16 x 1/4 x 11/16’’ c-c (or ½’’ space) v-notch or 3/16 x 1/4 x 1/2’’ c-c (or 5/16’’space) v-notch trowel, staying one inch away from all edges. Keep trowel notches clean and free of adhesive build-up to ensure proper application.
  4. Place panel against wall surface and press firmly over entire surface, working from the edge of the panel where molding is installed outwards to the open edge. Using a roller over the entire installed wall panel is also recommended. Note: Bracing may be required if walls or panels are not flat. Panels used in conjunction with channel moldings should NOT fit tightly into the moldings. Leave a small area in the molding for expansion and follow panel manufacturer’s recommendations. Any holes drilled through the panels for fasteners, pipes or conduits should be over-sized to allow for natural movement of the panel.
  5. Spread no more adhesive than can be installed in 20 minutes or less.
Coverage:
One 0.5 gallon pouch covers approximately 32 sq. ft., or a standard 4' x 8’ FRP panel
Cleanup:
To clean adhesive from panel, tools and hands while wet, use Titebond Adhesive Remover Cleaning Wipes, isopropyl alcohol or acetone as a solvent. Once adhesive has cured, it can be extremely difficult to remove. Follow solvent vendor’s precautions.
Limitations:
Before installation it is important to wipe down all metals with acetone if an oily residue is present as residue can deter adhesion. When bonding two non-porous substrates together, particularly in low humidity climates, it is recommended to lightly mist the wall substrate with water just before applying panel. Panels that do not lay flat or are heavier in weight may require at least 24 hours of blocking and bracing or permanent mechanical fasteners. If the wall is painted, be sure the paint is stable and bonded well enough to the wall to support the panels.
