Which Adhesive


Check out:
http://msdssearch.dow.com/PublishedL...romPage=GetDoc
In it, it says:
STYROFOAM™ Brand Square Edge
Insulation boards are easy to handle,
cut using a utility knife or serrated
blade, and install. The square edge
boards are designed to ensure
energy efficiency and minimize
on-site cutting and waste. Use a
polystyrene-compatible adhesive
to
hold the boards in place during
backfilling. Apply caulk or mastic to
the top of the board to prevent
water infiltration behind the
insulation. To complete the installation,
parge the above-grade portions of
STYROFOAM™ Brand Square Edge
Insulation to protect from solar
radiation.

That was my question which adhesive has anyone used that works well. I know it has to be compatible but as always some seem to work better than others so I was hooping someone who has glued this product together had found an adhesive that works best.
Thanks

Which Adhesive


Yup PL300 or PL premium

I like the PL premium better but it is tough to crank through the caulk gun

( make sure the glue is warm first, it helps a lot on the premium ).
