Part 3 EXECUTION
A. Inspect conditions of substrate and
other conditions which may affect installation of signage.
B. Do not begin installation until

F. Adhesives and fasteners must be used
for installing all products on concrete, metal, vinyl or wood, PL
Premium adhesive must be used on all bedding/butt joints to ensure the
beauty of you installation for years to come.
1.FCBP polyurethane products are handled
in the same manner as wood millwork
2.FCBP adhesives refer to PL Premium
3.Fasteners refer to nails, screws,
G. Allow adhesive to dry 24-48 hours

product, again using the wax and grease remover.
1. Use compressed air to remove the
excess sanding dust.
K. Apply filler to the
