Application of Product

Install RedGard® Uncoupling Mat according to product instructions.

Using the flat side of a trowel or a taping knife, embed the RedGard® Seam Tape into the still wet thin-set. With firm pressure, work the trowel or taping knife at angles out and away from the center taking care to work out any air that may have been trapped when the seam tape was placed.
