Is Bruce Everbond any good


Is Bruce Everbond any good? I'm installing Bruce engineered flooring on first story concrete slab in Tennessee. I purchased wood and glue from lowes. $75 for the glue. I did some research and a Urethane adhesive Armstrong ProConect is mentioned in the instructions. I also see Bosticks best glue is really good to. Should I take this Everbond back to Lowes and get something else. My wood floors have to acclamate for three days before I start my project.

Ok folks, I did some research here and looks like I'll return the Everbond and go get some urethane adhesive. This stuff looks ok.....

Does everyone agree?

I've never had much confidence in Bruce adhesives after being burned by one (Tribond) they dropped about ten years ago. It was a total failure and they would never admit to it. Bostiks is a great alternative, providing you follow all the specs.

as the previous post says, as long as you follow the instructions, Bostik is the best thing out there... Nothing i've used or tried compares to it... Water doesn't affect it, neither does moisture, temperature, etc.... it's pricey, but it's worth every cent. Now, there's a new one from Bostik, called Bostik EFA(engineered flooring adhesive) that's around $100 per bucket(Bostik Best is over $160). I've never used it, but you can do some research on it..

good luck.
