Application Guidelines

  • Application Temperature: Over 50°F for adhesive and substrates
  • Service Temperature Range: 0°F to 120°F
  • Working Time: 15 minutes
  • Method of Application: Mason’s trowel
  • Prep: Surfaces must be dry and free from any material that may deter adhesion.
  • Application: Let adhesive and materials acclimate to room temperature 24 hours before installing. Note: Do not use when temperature, adhesive or materials are below 50°F. Using the “butter” method, spread a thin layer of adhesive to cover a large area of each corner of tile. Then apply adhesive in 1” to 1 ½” mounds (golf ball size). Place mounds 2“ to 3” in from the corners on the back of the tile. Immediately press tile into position, working the tile back and forth ½” to flatten the mound of adhesive. Adhesive should be flattened to a mound ³/16” thick and 2 ½” in diameter. When installing interlocking tile, do not slide tile into groove of adjacent tile until it has been pressed against the ceiling to its proper level.
  • Cleanup: Tools and excess adhesive may be cleaned with water while the adhesive is wet. If dried, tools and adhesive may be cleaned with mineral spirits or equivalent solvent. Follow solvent vendor's precautions when using solvents. NOTE: Test solvent on an out-of-the-way area to make sure it will not mar or attack the surface.


Approximately 50-60 sq. ft. of ceiling tile per gallon.
