TL Adhesive™ - NEW
TL Adhesive™, when cured, is a strong, non-sagging, flexible binder to most substrates. The unique adhesive blend of TL Adhesive™ allows the sheets of TXTR-LITE™ to be adhered without sagging or slipping during installation.
TL Adhesive™ will tack within 2 hours and fully cure within 24 hours. TL Adhesive™ can be used indoors or outdoors. All installations are the responsibility of the installer and any application should be tested before final installation.
Adhesive Coverage - The standard coverage for TL Adhesive™ is 10 oz (1 standard caulking tube) per 4 square feet. Adhesive should evenly cover the entire sheet from edge to edge and corner to corner. Apply the adhesive to the back of the sheet with a caulking gun and use a 3/16" V-notched trowel to spread the adhesive to an even coat across the sheet. Complete adhesive coverage is very important for outdoor installations where moisture freeze and thaw may affect adhesion. For rough surfaces like concrete block more adhesive may be required.
Note: For TXTR-LITE™ sheets with clefts and ridges on the back it is recommended to back butter (pre-fill) low areas using additional TL Adhesive™.
TXTR-LITE™ Over Tile - When adhering TXTR-LITE™ over tile and other non-porous surfaces, TL Adhesive™ is the only adhesive recommended and backed by Ecosphere Associates, Inc. This adhesive will cure between two non-porous surfaces. Do not use air cure adhesives when bonding TXTR-LITE to tile or other non-porous surfaces as the adhesive may not cure properly.
Clean Up - TL Adhesive™ requires mineral spirit clean up to remove from tools and other surfaces. Please use proper ventilation and all recommended safety equipment when using mineral spirits. Mineral spirits are flammable and cautions must be taken to keep from flame or sparks. Do not use electric tools or heaters near or around any solvents. Please read all warnings on solvent containers before using.
