I have just finished wall tiling the bathroom with shiny ceramic tiles, up to about 1" off the ceiling. Having just bought 2 x packs of SUPERCOVE from B&Q along with a tub of their lightweight cove adhesive, I notice the adhesive instructions say that one of the bonding surfaces should be porous. Obviously the ceramic tile face is not porous, but what about the SUPERCOVE? It doesn't look or feel porous, but I don't know. If it isn't, what adhesive should I use?

I emailed a query to the SUPERCOVE company, but they just sent me a list of stockists !!

Thank you very much for any help.

Should take to the ceiling but wont take to the tile. You should have bought the artex polystyrene one looks the same but weighs nothing and stuck with silicone takes 2 seconds to fit and looks amazing.
