1. Put recommended amount of lukewarm water in a clean pail.

2. Slowly add dry mix into the water while stirring vigorously. Stir continuously until a smooth and desired consistency is obtained. After mixing, let stand for five minutes and then stir again before using. Stir occasionally while using for best consistency.

Application Method: Use only when the room temperature is above 50°F. Apply an even coat of adhesive with a roller or brush. Avoid contact with the surface of embossed, textured or delicate wallcoverings. Book wallcovering according to the wallcovering manufacturer’s instructions.

Clean-Up: Before the adhesive dries, remove any excess with clean water. Additional effort may be required if the adhesive is allowed to contact the surface of embossed or textured vinyls.
