Product Application
Cut and pre-fit materials prior to installation. Cut nozzle to desired bead size marked on nozzle. Puncture inner seal with nail or wire. IMPORTANT: For best results, set drywall onto adhesive within 15 minutes of application.

Holding drywall’s outer edges, nail every 12" on outer edges and every 16" over studs in field of the panel. Fasten center of field with nails every 16" over studs. NOTE: If studding is perfectly true, nailing inside field will not be required.
