GREENchoice Professional Cove Base Adhesive is designed for the quick and easy installation of rubber and vinyl cove bases. Its fast, strong grab holds materials firmly in place and eliminates sagging. It offers excellent adhesion to drywall, plaster, paint, wallpaper, paneling and ceramic tile. GREENchoice Professional Cove Base is a VOC-compliant formula containing no ozone-depleting chemicals, making it safer for you and the environment.

Application Guidelines

  • Application Temperature: Over 40°F. for adhesive and substrates
  • Service Temperature Range: 0°F. to 120°F.
  • Method of Application: Cartridge/caulking gun, trowel or putty knife
  • Working Surfaces: Cutting and piecing should be done before applying adhesive. Surfaces to be bonded should be clean, dry and free from oil and grease or any other material that may deter adhesion. Apply enough adhesive to hold cove base in place without causing squeeze-out. Press the cove base firmly and uniformly against the wall within 5-10 minutes after applying adhesive. Irregular or curved wall surfaces may require bracing until adhesive has set.
  • Cleanup: Tools and excess adhesive may be cleaned with water while the adhesive is wet. If dried, tools and adhesive may be cleaned with mineral spirits or equivalent solvent. Follow solvent vendor's precautions when using solvents. NOTE: Test solvent on an out-of-the-way area to make sure it will not mar or attack the surface.
