Installing Melamine Finished Tilepanel


I bought some Melamine Finished Tilepanel from Lowes that is smooth & white on one side like what you would see in a bathroom or laundry room. Instructions call for a Mastic of Asphalt Emulsion type adhesive. The instructions go on to say it needs to be applied with a trowel 3/16” to ” notches.

Of course, none of the fine people at Lowes have a clue what I should buy.

You guys help me out? I looked at the Liquid Nails FRP 300 Adhesive, but I am not sure it will work. I am putting this stuff up on a wood wall. I have access to Liquid Nails FRP 310 if that is better.

Try this site:
http://www.decpanels.com/install-smooth.html
This is the site of the DPI tileboard mft that Lowes.com has on its site. They recommend: "Use a high quality, solvent-based trowel grade Tileboard or construction adhesive. Do not use water based or FRP adhesive, as they will not work.

In high humidity areas: Use a flat trowel, and apply a thin layer (also called a skin coat) to the wall area you will be covering with the panels. Go directly to next step to apply adhesive to the wall panels."
Make sure this is the right tileboard since instructions may vary depending on type. Also, they've some info on conditioning the sheets to the home's climate prior to installing; may be useful in preventing buckling in the future.

I actually looked at that site, but these panels are not from dcpanels. They come from Aucatex which does not appear to have a US website.

Years ago, tileboard adhesive in caulking tubes was always available in the same store where you buy the tileboard. Haven't looked for it since I haven't put in any tileboard lately.
LIquid Nails site:
http://www.liquidnails.com/products/...tId=28#details
says this stuff is for tileboard (along with a lot of other stuff).
LIQUID NAILS ADHESIVE
15885 West Sprague Road.
Strongsville, OH 44136
Phone: (800) 634-0015 (try calling them and asking what product of their's is the same as what tileboard instructions recommend)
E-mail: [email protected]


Might ask another person at the blue store or try HD to see what they recommend.
