Surface Preparation
Rolled or warped wall base should be laid flat for 24 hours and allowed to return to normal state before adhesive application. Wall base backing should be free of surface contaminants prior to installation.
For best results, wall base, room and adhesive should be kept at a minimum of 60°F (15°C) for 48 hours before and after installation.
 

Application
Trowel: Use 1⁄8 in. (3 mm) V-notch trowel to apply adhesive evenly to the back of the wall base. Lack of adhesive due to improper trowel size can contribute to bond failure / inadequate bond. It is recommended to stay 1⁄4 in. (6 mm) away from edges of wall base. Do not allow adhesive to skin over. Immediately press firmly to the wall, rubbing across the face of wall base with a soft cloth. To assure tight fit, rub toward previously installed section. Installation of wall base around corners may require bracing of wall base until adhesive has set.

Cartridge: Cut nozzle and puncture inner seal prior to loading into cartridge gun. Apply adhesive to the wall base using 3 parallel, evenly spaced, 1⁄8 in. (3 mm) beads remaining 1⁄4 in. (6 mm) away from
edges. If preferred, an optional applicator attachment may be used. Do not allow adhesive to skin over. Immediately press firmly to the wall, rubbing across the face of wall base with a soft cloth. To assure
tight fit, rub toward previously installed section. Installation of wall base around corners may require bracing of wall base until adhesive has set.
 

Clean-up
Clean wet adhesive from wall base and surrounding materials with a damp cloth immediately after installation. Dried adhesive can be removed by mechanical means only.
