Novagard RTV 700 Series
Silicone grouts and tile adhesives for application in the pool & spa industry. Novagard adhesives and grouts are excellent products for many O.E.M. and service maintenance needs. New process formulations feature improved resistance to mold and mildew. Novagard adhesives are available in two formulas: (1) oxime, or neutral-cure where corrosion, and odor may be an issue, or in applications where adhesion to varying substrates is critical, and (2) acetoxy cure where the industry standard will meet your needs. Novagard grouts are a slower tack material to allow for longer tooling time and easy clean up. These low-odor, silicones are easy to use, require no mixing and the uncured products clean up with soap and water. Silicone grouts are mold and mildew resistant, and always remains flexible so they will not crack or fall out of joints. Grouts are only available in neutral-cure formulations.

BEST ANSWER: We used Novagard Silicone on our fiberglass pool to install glass tile around the entire pool. 18 months later and the tile is as secure as the first week we installed it. According to the label this product will adhere to most surfaces including concrete and fiberglass. Also, temperature extremes and water haven't affected it at all.
Check label on thin set to see what surfaces it works on, what temperature range and whether it will stand up to wet conditions. Personally, and I do a lot of DIY, I wouldn't want to mess with thin set tile work around a pool. Good luck
Will this product hold against extreme cold temperatures?
Nadia G on Jun 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I live in Pennsylvania where we do get cold winters. I have used this product for several years now and my experience is, it holds up well. I follow the instructions for the installation of the loosened tile, i.e. make sure the surface is clean and dry, allow the adhesive to full cure before I refill the pool. I opened my pool this year, 2019, and all my repaired tiles were still attached and in place. I give it a thumbs up.
Will this work on plaster pool waterline tile repair?
Stephen K on May 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It has worked for me. Occasionally my plaster pool tile needs repair and I have used this product to reattached the tile above and below the waterline. I drain the water below the work area and let the plaster dry. I reattach the tile and let the adhesive set and sure. It usually takes a day or two. Letting it cure is essential. I then grout the new tile. That dries quickly and then I refill the pool. The repaired areas have lasted years. I like this product for plaster pool tile repair and keep a tube on hand just in case I need it.
Would this work on a concrete bird bath bowl?
Kim J on Jun 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This would make a good seal to keep water in but if you are looking to mend this bath bowl structurally, I would recommend an adhesive they use for block walls. Something like Loctite PL Premium Polyurethane Construction Adhesive would work better.

Adhesive was easier to use that expected
I found the adhesive to easier to use that I expected from the instructions. Perhaps it is just forgiving. It does a great job. I know that some may just use grout to place the tiles, but I preferred to use the adhesive and I am glad I did because I believe the end result will be more durable. Yes, I would recommend this product.

My First Choice
Periodically most pools need some tile repair. Every couple years some of my tile lets loose. Novagard Silicone Adhesive does a terrific job of reattaching the tile and they stay attached for a long time. Follow the directions. Make sure you drop the water level sufficiently so the surface is completely dry and clean from debris. Chip out any loose cement or tile grout. Coat the replacement tile with a thin set of the adhesive. Let it cure for a day our two before you do the grout. I love this stuff and it is my first choice adhesive for pool tile repair.
