XPS glued pattern for concrete walls


Is there a "Best" glue pattern to attach XPS to concrete walls? Or is a few vertical lines of it with the top and bottom also glued horozontally alright? Can't find much information on this online...

You only need it to stay in place. Small globs every 12" or so should be enough. Get the correct adhesive. The wrong ones will just dissolve the foam.

Liquid Nail Heavy Duty works and won't disolve the foam. Any PL product (other than the foam board stuff) will melt the foam.
