How do you use FRP adhesive?
Only apply adhesive to the FRP panel. DO NOT wait longer than the manufacturer’s recommended open time. Doing so could allow the adhesive to dry (or cure) and create a weak bond to the wall surface. ALWAYS spread the adhesive over the entire back of the panel using the recommended trowel.
