The sales rep at Home Depot said that I could remove the old caulk around my tub and then use this product to re-caulk, but nowhere in the instructions or in any online videos have I seen this product used to caulk.

Answer: 
the Loctite Power Grab Tub Surround Adhesive is not a caulk or sealant. It is not designed to be used in the intended application described in your message. You are correct, there are no instructions or videos that would speak to this type of use. The product is an adhesive designed to adhere plastic tub surrounds to drywall.

Will this product attach tub surround to drywall that has been primed with drywall sealer?

This question is from Power Grab 10 fl. oz. Tub Surround Adhesive
Asked by
Cleveland, Ohio

October 6, 2016
The drywall in the tub surround area has screws and joints that have been taped and covered with joint compound. Presume glue will have a hard time sticking to unsealed joint compound so planned to use sealer over entire area. Will this work?

Answer (1)

October 10, 2016
Answer: 
To use the Power Grab Tub Surround Adhesive successfully one surface must be porous. You would need to sand the sealed surface to create a porous surface for bonding. However, if screws and joints were cover with joint compound these areas should be primed only with a latex primer. The adhesive will not adhere to unprimed joint compound. Do not prime the entire wall surface.

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by "Power Grabs" The Job Right! This stuff works great. Great initial grab and great holding power. Sets fast and cures just as fast (a little sooner than the 24 hours stated depending on humidity levels and temperature). I would have given it 5 stars but you have to use way more than other shower/tub surround adhesives but it works way better so you get the job done right the first time. In most cases, no sagging of panels, no taping and no bracing. September 18, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Drys well, but pain to use. I used this to attach a counter top to a new vanity in the bathroom. When applying, it doesn't seem to adhere as well as others, but once you get it where you want it, it dries like cement. It also dries clear, so you can't ever really tell it's there. All in all, not bad. November 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works Well The Loctite Tub Adhesive works well and initially dries in a reasonable amount of time. We did trowel the glue to spread the glue and to let the glue stiffen a bit. There was two spots where we used an adjustable shower rod holder and some 1x4 pieces of lumber to make sure the panel was flat to give the adhesive time to set more. This worked well. (Note that we used Loctite Tub adhesive only after several unsuccessful tries with trying to use Liquid Nails tub surround adhesive). "Do it right and get Loctite". April 30, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works correctly Was able to use this product to install a 5 piece tub surround and to add FRP sheets to the wall above the tub surround. Product cured in less then 24 hours and holds tight. Tried Liquid Nails Tub Surround adhesive and that had to be scraped off, as it didn't cure. This product worked well! February 17, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by look elsewhere will not bond plastic to plastic.... so is worthless for a tub or shower.... February 14, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worthess Adhesive Tried to use Powergrab to mount a shelf in my shower, the shelf is a ceramic type of material and trying to attached it to the same type of material; bad news first, this product takes a week to cure, so unless you have a lot of time I wouldn't recommend using this stuff. I expect more from Loctite, this has changed how I think of Loctite in the future. May 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product - worked better than advertised. This product worked better than advertised. They recommend not using on cement board - did a test with it on cement board - worked perfectly. Worked perfectly on my tub surround as well - with cement board behind the panels. Also did a test with the Liquid Nails tub surround product - did not go well. I needed less than 4 tubes of the Loctite adhesive to complete the installation of a 3-piece tub surround. February 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Bathroom Glue Great product without any smell. Good coverage. I used a bit less than was recommended and it worked great. The walls were not plumb as I had to replace some moldy drywall mating 1/2 inch with the existing 3/8 inch. I also had to trim up the drywall and feather out the joints. May 8, 2012
