After reading someone’s positive comments on this stuff I decided to give it a try on current job…new laminate countertops and backsplashes in an older home.
When I removed the old splashes, prior contact glue pulled a lot of sheetrock paper and left some pretty rough surfaces, so thought I’d give it a try on cove metal and new splashes. It’s latex based and guns on a little thicker than toothpaste…way easier to control than solvent based (PL, etc.)
They aren’t kidding, it has amazing initial tack, but is reposition-able. Put a bead on the cove metal and pushed in onto wall… stuck, and I mean stuck…even followed contours of a wobbley wall! I was able to slide it some into position. Gunned a bead right above metal and one at top of splash, then an up and down heart rate bead between ’em. Pushed splash into metal and onto wall…done. In the past I’ve sometimes stuck a nail or two in metal or propped splashes till adhesive set…not needed here.
Anyway, long story short…this stuff works and guns great, not to spendy ($3 @ Lowes), will use again. My only fear is that it won’t stay stuck over the long haul. No reason to beleive it won’t, just no long term experience.
Any other experience or comments?
Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.
