    A:  Thank you for the question, Richie. Loctite Power Grab Tub Surround Construction Adhesive is not designed for this purpose and should not be used for the described application for safety reasons.

      Q:Will this bond a tub surround to Greenboard and to drywall mud?

      Answer This Question

      A:  Thank you for the question. Loctite Power Grab Express Tub Surround Construction Adhesive can be used with Greenboard and other porous bonding surfaces. Priming over mudded joints or nail holes filled with joint compound on drywall is recommended and should be done, but do not prime the entire wall when using a water based adhesive product.

        Q:Can i mark my glue pattern on the back of the surround with a pencil prior to applying the adhesive?

        Answer This Question

        A:  Thank you for the question. Marking the back of your tub surround with a pencil is not a good idea as it can interfere with the adhesive bond and its development. This would be considered a contaminant at this point. Sounds like your tub surround or wall surface may not be well suited for using Loctite Power Grab Tub Surround Adhesive. Please reach out to our team at 1-800-624-7767 and ask to talk with an application specialist if you need help.

          Q:the surround manufacturer says to press the panel firmly to the wall, then flash (pull) the panel away from the wall, remove the release paper from the foam tape and then press the panel back against the wall. can this be done with this product?

          Answer This Question

          A:  Thank you for the question. The term flash is assuming you may have a solvent based adhesive and may be a bit outdated. Loctite Power Grab Tub Surround Adhesive is a latex, water-based product. At least one bonding surface must be porous. Pulling the panel away from the wall after adhesive application will cause this product to fail. Not knowing the brand or manufacturer of your tub surround does not allow us to fully address you question in a proper manner. Please reach out to us at 1-800-624-7767 so we can better understand the materials involved, and ask to talk with an application specialist if you still need help.

              Q:Can this product be used to glue polyethylene plastic sheets to wood 2x4 studs?
              by|Oct 14, 2021
              2 Answers
              Answer This Question

              A:  Based on the product description I attempted to attach Clear 3.5 mil Plastic Sheeting (2-Pack)(073257012843) to a clean 2x4 stud in a wall. After 9+ hours the plastic came right off with just a slight touch - it was barely holding there against gravity.

              by|Oct 15, 2021

                A:  Thank you for the question. Unfortunately the answer is no, the Loctite Power Grab Tub Surround Adhesive will not bond to polyethylene plastic. Perhaps you mean polystyrene plastic assuming this is a tub surround panel. If you need more help, please reach out to our Team at 1-800-624-7767 and ask to talk with the Application Specialist who can better guide you.

                    A:  Thank you for the question. The Loctite Power Grab Tub Surround is not recommended for FRP panel installs. FRP panels require a trowel grade FRP adhesive for 100% surface coverage for best performance
