LIQUID NAILS® Construction Adhesives: Tips & Tricks

Streamline Paneling and Tileboard Installation with Wall Adhesive

Tileboard and decorative paneling are not just for bathrooms anymore. With a wide variety of designs and patterns available, today's homeowners are choosing tileboard and decorative paneling to transform rooms throughout their home. For example, many wish to recreate the look of early 20th-century tin ceilings with tiles of plastic or metal paneling.

Installing Tileboard on Walls:

  • Make sure the walls are clean, dry and free of loose paint, plaster or other materials. Lightly sand any glossy-painted walls or ceramic tile, then wipe them clean.
  • Apply LIQUID NAILS Brand Heavy Duty Construction Adhesive (LN-903) over the entire back of the panel. Using a 1/8-inch v-notched trowel, spread the wall adhesive out to the edges and corners of the panel.
  • Wait five minutes (no more than 15) and then press the panel into place so that good contact is made between the wall adhesive and the wall.
  • Check and re-press each panel, especially the edges, every 15 minutes for the first hour.
  • Allow the wall adhesive to dry overnight. For bathrooms, caulk all seams with 100% pure silicone sealant. (Do NOT use a siliconized acrylic latex caulk.) Also caulk around all fixtures.
  • If moldings are used, put a small bead of sealant inside the molding channel and fit the molding onto the panel.

Installing Decorative Paneling on Walls:

  • Make sure the walls are clean, dry and free of loose paint, plaster or other materials. Lightly sand any glossy-painted walls or ceramic tile, then wipe them clean.
  • Apply a ¼-inch bead of LIQUID NAILS Brand Heavy Duty Construction Adhesive (LN-903) around the perimeter of the back of the panel about one inch from the edges.
  • Apply more wall adhesive in the center of the panel in the shape of a large “X.”
  • Press the panel into place, and immediately pull it back away from the wall. After one minute, press the panel back into place.

Installing Ceiling Panels:

  1. Make sure the existing ceiling is structurally sound, clean and dry before installation. Plaster, cement or mortar must be fully cured before wall adhesive is applied.
  2. Apply one two-inch ball of LIQUID NAILS Brand Heavy Duty Construction Adhesive (LN-903) (at least ¾-inch thick) per square foot of panel. This can be done with either a cartridge and caulking gun or the can grade wall adhesive and a spatula.
  3. Press the tile into place within 20 minutes.
  4. Remove the first tile immediately to check the wall adhesive application. About 50% of the tile should be covered with wall adhesive after the tile has been pressed into place. The wall adhesive should then be about 1/8-inch thick and four inches in diameter.
  5. Replace the first tile and repeat the installation process for each remaining tile.

Note: There is no need to check the wall adhesive application on each individual tile as long as the first tile had the proper coverage.
