MusselBound is the contractor’s proven alternative to mortar and
Get-in and get-out…be sure you spend tomorrow on your next job by using MusselBound today.
Place enough MusselBound on any clean and dry wall in your shop to accommodate an 18” x 18” tile. Set tile and press firmly in place to activate MusselBound adhesive. Cover the tile surface with more MusselBound and set another 18” x 18” tile on top of the first and press firmly in place. Repeat to build up 3 layers. Easy-to-use MusselBound is fast with a hold that is strong.
APPLICATIONS: MusselBound allows contractors to
grout immediately after setting tiles. Complete an entire backsplash,
countertop or even shower wall installation in just one day.
TYPES OF TILE AND SURFACES: MusselBound permanently installs ceramic, stone, porcelain, glass, metal and mesh-backed mosaic tiles. This easily-applied adhesive mat can be installed directly to thoroughly clean and dry cement board, plywood, drywall, old tile and existing laminate.
TIPS: MusselBound’s unique adhesive utilizes a 5 second press with a grout float across its entire area to activate the mat’s “permanent” adhesive bond. But, prior to activation, MusselBound’s initial adhesion allows the mat and tile to be repositioned to assure proper material alignment. No mortar means no clogged grout lines. The use of tile spacers makes placement easy, though different than setting and sliding in mortar. Tiles cut with a wet saw may require use of a simple hair dryer to ensure that any moisture absorbed is removed.
WATERPROOF SYSTEM: A fully waterproof adhesive barrier can also be achieved by sealing the Mat seams with our MusselBound Seam Tape for tiled areas in contact with water, such as shower walls. MusselBound eliminates the need for a separate rubber membrane or solvent rubber paint. See our Shower Installation Video at MusselBound.com
