Have a question about Oatey 16 oz. X-15 PVC Shower Pan Liner Adhesive Cement?

Rate this post

A: Masonry nails might work, make sure it’s at least 12-18” above bottom of pan

A: I would use clear silicone to bond pvc liner as it’s a very difficult product to adhere

A: Oatey doesn’t offer a recommended product for this application. We would suggest that you reach out to an adhesive manufacture to explore a product that will not damage the PVC liner while giving you good adhesion to the brick surface. If you choose to anchor the liner to the brick, you will need to pre-drill all the holes through the liner and brick and then use a stainless steel screw to anchor the liner to the brick. remember that this screw must be secured at the top of the liner to keep as much waterproof protection as possible. Before anchoring the liner the the brick, make sure all debris has been cleaned up.

A: I have never seen a pan liner material used to seal against a brick surface!!! Not sure what configuration you are trying to solve. Sounds very odd. If you are in an exterior environment, you may want to look at a an HDPE liner material or bitumastic sealant for the moisture control.

A: All that I do is clean the brick to remove any loose debris and simply apply the X15 to the brick in the area needed and install the liner. I do also reapply it over the edge for a second coat just in case. This stuff works great.

A: can this work 6mil plastic sheetimg

A: You can use a piece of the Liner and X-15 to patch any holes with a minimum of 2″ overlap and overnight cure prior to water testing.

A: Yes. I would make sure that your patch piece is atleast 2 inches or so wider and it will work great.

A: Yes. Be sure existing liner and “patch” are clean and dry when installing.

A: I don’t think so… l believe it’s only for bonding the liner to itself. Check out Oatey’s website for their shower drain schematic. I think they suggest silicone where the liner meets with the drain fitting.

A: No. You will need to use 100% silicone where the drain base and the Liner meet. This is also displayed in our “how to” video at www.oatey.com.

A: You could cover an entire 3 x 5 foot shower, but there is no need. It’s enough to do 10 shower pans easily.

A: Applying a 20 mil thick coating on each surface, and a 2” overlap on seams, one can of X-15 should do roughly 30 feet of seam.

A: This adhesive is for bonding PVC liners ONLY. I highly doubt that it would work underwater.

A: This product is not tested or approved for your application. It is designed to be used with our PVC Shower Pan Liner.

A: I don’t think so you have to coat both sides and let dry before bonding so don’t think it will work in water

A: I would go to a pool supply for the right product if you can’t find it elsewhere. We were pointed to this by a sales clerk for fixing a crack in a gutter. Made a mess and didn’t stick. Hope you can find the right product.

A: YES. I had a small hole in the above ground intex (16foot) type pool. PVC cement also works (youtube videos) but being a strong solvent may be too strong. So I opted for this instead due to availability (and cost). Afterall, PVC is vinyl but you don’t want to melt a bigger hole. Cut one patch for inside, put plenty of cement, fold in half (so that solvent does not dissolve, wash away underwater), got to the hole and quickly unfold, place on hole and massage it. It glued very well underwater and would not come off even with gentle tugs…but time will tell. Stopped the leaked on the now dry exterior so I put another patch on the outside. DONE!!! If you can do this with both sides dry even better.

A: my friend used it to fix pool liner and I works great for him. I will use hh66 but will try this X15 to

A: I’m sorry but you will have to rework your drain where X-15 was used to assemble the joints. X-15 doesn’t have the solids in the formula necessary to fuse and bond the pipes together,

A: Start over!

A: Sorry but it’s not for pvc pipes.

A: I am a plumber and this was designed for use with PVC shower liner. The drain being PVC may hold for a period of time, but I would not trust it.

A: unfortunately this is just a seaming adhesive to bond the Liner to itself. This is not the same as the appropriate solvent cement which is what you would need to use to bond rigid pipe. I would re-do this.

A: We would not recommend the X-15 for this application

A: I used this to join two heavy duty PVC shower curtains together.

A: This is not designed or tested as a patch for your application. This is specifically formulated to bond our PVC Liner.

A: That’s a very good question. I’m not sure about the strength or flexibility in that application but it sure is a great adhesive for shower pan liners. It would be worth a shot I guess.

A: No – shower pan must be clean and dry

A: No sanding. 1) For large showers pan material may have to be seamed to adequately cover the floor, wall and curb area. Clean surfaces to be joined from dirt, grease, water or any other debris that may interfere with the bonding process. 2) Apply an even coating of adhesive with a brush or dauber applicator to both surfaces with a 2” overlap. 3) For best instant strength on contact, allow solvent coating to partially dry (approximately 15-30 seconds after applying X-15 to material) at which time both surfaces should be extremely tacky. Join the two surfaces and apply pressure using a paint roller or 2 x 4 wood section over the freshly bonded seam for 2-3 minutes. Observe the outer seam to make sure there are no gaps. 4) Do not disturb the liner immediately after assembly. Place a heavy object over the entire seamed area during cure period. This will help provide a strong bond between the pan liner surfaces. Good handling strength will develop in approximately two to four hours. Allow overnight cure before water testing a shower pan assembly.

A: No.
