Does not work on tub surrounds
Purchased this adhesive to use on my tub surround (which is what its advertised for). Directions say that one of the surfaces has to be porous which my decorative sheet was. The adhesive applied really smooth (better than caulk) and appear to be working, but after hours, it's crumbly and can easily be pulled apart with just the lightest pressure. It's quite disappointing.

Thank you for sharing your feedback. Loctite Power Grab Tub Surround Construction Adhesive does require at least one porous surface to cure properly and takes 24 to 48 hours to cure, dependening upon temperature, humidity, porosity of substrate, and amount of adhesive used. If you ever need help using our product, feel free to reach out to our technical team at 1-800-624-7767 so we can help you.

    Do not use on Tub Surrounds!
    Says it's an adhesive for Tub Surrounds however it does not work. The bond releases just days after drying and you can simply peal it off the wall. This is a clean new construction application hence the application could not be more perfect yet this product didn't bond. Was it even tested? Worthless! After this experience, I have stopped buying all Loctite products. The company obviously doesn't care about quality.

      I use this every time instant grab and hold but still allows you to adjust shower walls. I’ve used this 10 years ago in the same apartment building I used it in last week and it’s still holding strong in the other unit.

      Glue sets up really fast. Make sure of a dry fit before gluing. I installed a thin tub surround and wished I had used a trowel to spread glue. You can get lumps if not spread well.

        This is the best adhesive if you need to get a tub or shower insert installed. Fast acting though so move quickly

        Easy to clean
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This product is completed dry in 12 hours is specifically designed to bond most bathroom fixtures. You don’t need anything to hold it because it dries so fast.It dries white but you can paint it. Easy to clean before it dries.

          Fantastic
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] As someone currently doing lots of home repairs it is so important to find affordable and reliable products for the renovation. This caulk worked very well. It was very easy to use and seems to be holding up very well.

            Looks great, easy to use
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Loctite power grab-tub surround adhesive is easy to use, easy to clean up, and looks awesome. I recently used the adhesive in our rental home after installing a new tub and surround. I was not disappointed by the end results! The adhesive went on smoothly and was easy to push into place. To this date, there is no cracking or pealing-keeping the sheet rock behind the surround nice and dry!

              Great tub surround adhesive
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This loctite power grab tub surround construction adhesive, 9oz, cartridge is the best kind caulking I have used in a long while. It works flawlessly. It's the perfect shade of white as well. I was able to get quite a bit os use out of this 9oz cartridge. This is now my go to product :^)

                Great
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We recently listed our house and my husband decided to use this around one of our showers. It was simple to use and seems to be doing it's job. We still had a lot left over, so it comes with plenty for multiple shower or bathtubs. I would recommend this product even just to touch up some areas.

                    Seals out water
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I picked up a tube of Loctite power, grab tub surround construction adhesive to reseal around my tub to keep water out and prevent mold. I pulled out the old caulk and loaded the cartridge and it came out very easily. I gave it 24 hours to set before running water on it. It’s been a couple weeks and it is so far held up very well. Loctite is a good brand so I trust it will continue to do its job.

                      Dries very brittle
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Wasn't super impressed with this adhesive. It co.e out of the tube fairly thick/chunky and doesn't have a lot of pliability to shape or tweak when applying. After dry time and curing, the paste turns very brittle. Adhesion quality is there though. It will hold things together. Long term time will tell if it resists moisture. Overall, it's serviceable but nothing special in my opinion.

                        Loctite an go.
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Loctite Power Grab Tub Surround Interior Construction Adhesive has been specifically designed. Working to bond most bathroom and shower enclosures. It resists moisture which I am thankful because we have a lot in there when we shower. The vent can not even keep up. We did this to make sure everything was okay.

                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is the best adhesive I’ve ever used. It’s easy to apply and it’s mess free! The adhesive is also fast drying. It works great on just about about any texture, plastic, tile, ceramic, etc. This is a high quality product that I highly recommend.

                                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought the power grab loctite to use around the tub faucet. After replacing the faucet I was able to use the adhesive around the faucet. It was really easy to apply and dried fairly quickly. I liked using it so much that I just finished up filling in the cracks from the tile I installed
