Lay out Track-Bed™ in one piece. Accommodate tight curves by separating the Track-Bed into two narrow strips along the slit that runs lengthwise. Lay the two pieces seperately, butting them snuggly in the middle. Do this by first drawing a center line for your track. Lay each half strip of Track-Bed on either side along this center line.
We recommend using Foam Tack Glue. Spread a thin, even layer of Foam Tack Glue on top of Track-Bed. Place pieces of track on glue and pin in place with Foam Nails to secure while drying.
We recommend using Foam Tack Glue to attach Track-Bed to a layout.
There are different application methods depending on base material.
Plaster surfaces: Spread a thin, even layer of Foam Tack Glue where Track-Bed will be installed. Lay Track-Bed and pin in place with Foam Nails to secure while drying. Work in two to three-foot sections. This application method also allows the modeler to make adjustments while installing Track-Bed.
A permanent application method for plaster and other surfaces: Use the Contact Gluing Method. Apply Foam Tack Glue to both contact surfaces. Let dry until clear and tacky (maximum working time is 1 hour), and then press Track-Bed in place. Installation of Track-Bed has to be precise, because glue will bond instantly. Place Track-Bed in manageable sections.
For both application methods, we recommend sanding the top and bottom surface of Track-Bed with 120-grit sandpaper before installation.
We do not manufacture plastic screws and have never tested their usage. This is how we recommend you attach track to your Track-Bed.We recommend using Foam Tack Glue.
