    Answer This Question

    A:  Thank you for the question. Loctite Power Grab Tub Surround Construction Adhesive is not designed for this intended use and would not be recommended. This product is a latex, water-based adhesive and will not bond two non-porous substrates and should not be used for this application. You might try looking at Loctite PL Marine Fast Cure Adhesive Sealant as a possible alternative, however results cannot be guaranteed.

      Answer This Question

      A:  It's glue, not a sealer. Silicon-based caulk would be better for filling the seams.

      by|Nov 7, 2022

        A:  Thank you for the question. Loctite Power Grab Tub Surround should not be used to fill seams on a tub surround and would not be recommended in this situation. The product is a latex, water-based adhesive and it will not cure between two non-porous substrates. You should refer to the tub surround manufacturer’s instructions or contact them if you are having difficulties with the seams.

                  Answer This Question

                  A:  Thank you for the question. Loctite Power Grab Tub Surround Adhesive is a latex, water-based product. It can be used on moisture resistant gypsum/drywall but it is not recommended for use on waterproof cement board such as HardieBacker, Durock® cement board, or other waterproof panels like Wedi Board. You might consider using Loctite Power Grab Ultimate-White. What is important to know is making sure these types of tile backer boards are clean and free of dust typically associated with them otherwise the adhesive with not bond properly. Also, the Power Grab Ultimate is not a trowel grade product so if instructions by the surround manufacturer call for troweling the adhesive, then this product may not be suitable for the application.

                      A:  It's a great product. It works really well on surrounds. I have had good results using it with other plastics as well.

                      by|Feb 26, 2022

                        A:  Thank you for the question. Loctite Power Grab Tub Surround Adhesive is best suited for bonding tub surrounds to flat, well prepared, drywall surfaces. It will bond the tub surround to wood stud framing if the surround is designed for this type of install, but keep in mind the surround may be sensitive to temperature change when the shower is in use so you should consult the shower surround manufacturer for complete installation instructions for wood framing members before you start. This product must be applied directly to the tub surround panel rather than the studs. For specific use instructions, we recommend you visit our website and review the product's technical data sheet.

                          Q:Will this bond Fiberglass Reinforced Panel to foam board or other substrates?
                          by|Feb 23, 2022

                          Answer This Question

                          A:  Thank you for the question. First, Loctite Power Grab Tub Surround Construction Adhesive is a latex, water-based product. It requires at least one bonding surface to be porous. It will not bond two non-porous substrates together such as a tub surround to foamboard. Second, this adhesive is not a trowel grade adhesive therefore for applications such as FRP panels this would not be recommended. Last, the Tub Surround Adhesive will not work in the temperature conditions you have described. Application temperature must be at 50 deg F or above and the same during the cure time.
