Surface Preparation

Make sure that all surfaces are clean, dry, structurally sound and free of any loose paint or other materials. Sand and roughen high-gloss paint.

Product Application

Do not apply LN-915 when surface or adhesive temperature exceeds 90°F. Cut nozzle at 45° angle to a 1/8" bead size. Puncture inner seal with nail or wire. Apply in a continuous 1/8" bead, following the tub surround manufacturer's instructions. Some tub surround manufacturers require adhesive bead to be spread out with a trowel. Consult tub surround installation instructions for specific recommendations.

Venting Method

Apply LN-915 adhesive and press panel firmly to wall, then pull away. Wait 3 to 5 minutes, then press panel firmly back into place. For proper adhesion, after 20 to 30 minutes, go around entire tub surround and press firmly over all flat surfaces. If any edges lift up, tape them to the wall with masking tape until adhesive dries. Let cure 24 hours.


Use mineral spirits. Do not use turpentine.
