You have two options when installing cove base - a wet adhesive system, or a dry adhesive system. Our 30+ years of experience has shown us that a dry cove base adhesive is typically the best option, though it is not for everyone.
There are benefits to each type of installation, but we recommend a dry adhesive, like Opti-Grip, because it doesn't require curing time and will allow you to complete the project more quickly.
Opti-Grip is a double-sided contact adhesive that will allow you to install cove base for immediate use. It's an acrylic tape with a fiberglass scrim reinforcement that creates a durable, long-lasting bond for your cove base installation.
