Surfaces

  • To what surfaces will Command™ Products stick?

    Painted, stained or varnished wood, glass, tile, painted cinder block, plaster, metal, and painted wallboard.


    Command™ Outdoor Products can also be used on smooth, sealed and finished surfaces including vinyl siding and fences, doors, windows, decks, gutters and trim. The Outdoor Product line is not recommended for use on rough surfaces, such as cement board, brick or rough-sawn wood.

  • Will Command™ Products stick to brick?

    No. Command™ Products are intended for mostly smooth surfaces such as those listed above. However, our products will stick to painted, smooth cinder block (the type found inside many school and office buildings).

  • Can I use Command™ Products on fresh paint?

    Paint should be fully cured (check paint can for manufacturer's cure time) before using Command Products. We recommend waiting a week before use on fresh paint. Also, alcohol may remove or dull the surface of fresh paint.

  • Can I use Command™ Products on glass windows?

    It is okay to use Command™ Products if the glass is not exposed to direct sunlight and not flooded with water. For example: Do not use inside or outside on south or west windows. For glass shower doors use our special Water-Resistant line of products (blue strip) which are clearly marked on our packaging.


    However, all Command™ Outdoor Products can be used on windows that have direct exposure to sunlight. These products are UV-resistant.

Climate and Temperature

  • Can I use Command™ Products in my car?

    Because the adhesive could soften and lose adhesion above 125°F (51°C), we don't recommend using it in your car. In addition, vinyl dashboards and door panels contain high amounts of plasticizers to maintain flexibility, and this makes adhesion to these surfaces difficult.
