Adhesive for Ceiling Panels

Postby Mysteryman » Tue Apr 14, 2020 9:52 am

I have decided to fit some PVC panels above our shower area and am struggling to find a suitable adhesive to use.

All the ones I've seen so far (Pinkgrip, etc.) have a few reviews saying they have not stuck well.

The panels should be pretty light - 5mm thick, 250mm wide and total area is 870mm x 1160mm.

The ceiling is standard platerboard/skimmed and painted.

Can anybody make a recommendation for a reliable grab adhesive that will stick and stay stuck?

Thanks

Hi mysteryman,
If the ceiling paint is sound I would use silicone mastic.
Others on this forum may have alternative suggestions.
