PlumBud differs from TileBud in that the Sealux strip is supplied with the backer rod attached.

A longitudinal adhesive bed (under the blue release liner) defines the boundary line between the strip upper portion that is permanently bonded to the shower wall and the strip lower strip portion that is releasable off the shower wall to relieve strip stress under the effects of joint expansion.

FlangeBand PlumBud presents the Sealux strip and backer rod as a co-bonded sealing assembly which limits its use to installation with flange free shower bases and bathtubs being installed into one and two wall shower enclosures.

Install PlumBud during the installation of a Shower Base or Tub with No Tile Flange into a one or two wall shower enclosure. We recommend TileBud for three wall shower enclosures.
