base molding Concrete

replacing some base molding in the basement.

hoping to avoid drilling into the concrete poured(placed ? ) foundation.

Anyone have any experience with PL fast grab? I was thinking of just using this and then some white caulk for the gaps at the top ( for appearance ).

previously the molding that was down there was just affixed using construction adhesive and seemed to have no issues.

interior walls will still get nailed to the studs.

base molding Concrete

Confusing post to me.
Base moulding should never be attached directly to the concrete.
That last line is not making any since. If there already a studded wall and it's going to be sheet rocked, why is the baseboard in contact with the concrete.
Explaining the wall set up from the foundation wall out to the finished wall may clear it up.

I can tell you PL will hold a toilet to a ceiling if you want. I'm not commenting on your plan for installation because you know wood on contact with cement can equal rot. But as far as PL goes, I adhered my limestone address block to the outside brick. The only way it's coming off is with a sledgehammer if my house ever got renumbered. Ha.
