Safety Precautions

Wear gloves.


The temperature of the adhesive, the surfaces and the working area must be above 50°F (10°C). One surface must be porous. Surfaces must be clean, dry and free of frost, grease, dust and other contaminants. To obtain maximum adhesion, surfaces should be flat to provide adequate contact. Painted surfaces must be well cured and free of loose paint. Sand glossy surfaces to a dull finish. Concrete walls must be well cured, dry and free of any release agents. Place the Loctite PL Paneling & Trim Adhesive in a caulking gun and cut the nozzle at a 45° angle to desired bead size. Puncture inner seal.


Using a caulking gun, apply adhesive around the perimeter 2'' (5 cm) in from the edge and vertically every 12'' (30 cm). Alternatively apply a continuous bead to all furring strips, studs and top and bottom plates. Press firmly into place within 20 minutes. Use clamps or other means of support to ensure maximum contact for 24 hours or until fully cured. Cure time is dependent upon temperature, humidity and amount of adhesive used. Finishing nails are required for materials that may warp such as thin wood molding and trim.


Clean tools and any uncured adhesive residue with warm soap and water. Cured adhesive may be carefully cut away with a sharp-edged tool.
