DAP cove base adhesive is ok for painted surfaces.  If the wall happens to be painted with a gloss paint, you'll need to sand it to remove the gloss.

Hello levenlinks,


As Adam444 states and links, you can use a cove base adhesive to ensure your cove base is firmly secure.


I only wanted to add that we sell an add-on applicator that gives you a wider spread of adhesive that a simple bead of caulk. This makes the job of having to apply the cove base adhesive easier and quicker.


It's called the 'Snozzle', and by clicking the image below will direct you to it to see if it is available in your local area.

I hope this has helped you out,

Thank you for the reassurance that the adhesive would adhere to the painted surface.  I read so many horror stories about the base cove falling off the walls overnight (preglued product) that I worried the applied adhesive would do the same thing.

Thanks,  I'll look for it at our local store.
