I just put down 1/4" Luan in my kitchen in preparation for Peel & Stick
I am about to apply a coat of adhesive primer to the Luan. Can the primer be
applied several days before the tile is to be installed or should it be
applied just hours before the tile installation?
Thx in Advance,
Only the mfgr of the particular tiles you are putting down knows what's
best. They know the adhesive on the tile. They should/should not recommend
a primer. If they do, they probably recommend a particular kind - brand,
latex, oil, etc. If it's not on the docs that come with the tile there
should at least be a phone number for tech support.
For maximum adhesion, simply apply a coat of the cheapest polyurethane
varnish you can find. After drying, go over with a sanding block and
tack rag and your tile will be perfectly bonded. Where you have seams
in the luan, smooth on some Bondo, Water Putty or whatever, sand level
and clean and you will avoid imprinting the seam on the new tile. Good
