WALL SURFACE PREPARATION RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SHOWER WALL UNITS
When installing over SHEETROCK/GREENBOARD/WOOD:
A. Surface must be dry, smooth, and free of any dust, soap scum or any other contaminants. Wipe wall surface with a damp cloth.
B. To insure proper adhesion between the Swanstone product and
Sheetrock/Greenboard/Wood, it is best to use a primer/sealer, and it is IMPORTANT to
follow these guidelines: Oil based primer/sealers (such as Bin-Seal, or all purpose
enamel paint) should NOT be used to cover the entire wall surface
(Sheetrock/Greenboard/Wood) but only should be applied at the areas where the double-faced tape adheres to the wall surface. Water based primer/sealers (such as latex
paint) MAY be used to cover the entire wall surface (Sheetrock/Greenboard/Wood).
C. After the proper primer/sealer is completely dry, complete the installation following
the installation instruction sheet.
When installing over PLASTER:
A. Surface must be dry, smooth and free of any dust, soap scum or any other contaminants. Wipe wall surface with a damp cloth.
B. The wall surface (textured/swirled finish must be sanded smooth) must be sealed
