** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Wall tile adhesive can be used for interior wall and ceiling applications only, in dry or limited water exposure environments. It can be used for setting all types of glazed and unglazed tiles, over properly prepared gypsum wallboard, fully cured concrete, and cementitious backer board. Do not use for floor installations, pools, tanks, etc., or over dimensionally unstable substrates. Do not use for marble or marble agglomerates of the Verde green, Rosso Levanto or Negro Marquina types.
