Need more info.
Is it wood, some funky limonite poop?
If it's wood to wood then Tite Bond II is what I would use with predrilled holes for galvanized finish nails. The reason I use galvanized is they have a rough finish and hold better.

I'm installing solid oak hardwood floor on oriented strand board sub-floor. I'm thinking of using Chemrex cx941 adhesive.

Well that's confusing, your asking about bull nose on a stair tread in one place and hardwood flooring in another.
Hardwood is nailed or stapled not glued down unless it's really wide flooring.

BCD: You may want to double check two things that I'm not sure/skeptical/cautionary about:

Glue down on OSB... I've never done it, but OSB is kinda flaky, subject to moisture, and I don't know its viability for long term glue-down."

When using natural (non engineered) hardwood, even if a prefinished product which runs a little straighter than natural, how are you going to straighten it and hold it tight/straight without nailing it.?

I have put hardwood on OSB, staple down, but it was 1 1/4 superfloor, and I stapled the heck out of it.... near as I know it is still fine... but I'd much rather be on plywood.

I'm not a harwood installer, just a GC, but you may want to confirm my considerations as above.

Best

Peter

I'm sorry about the hardwood part...the bull nose has no other grip other then to glue it...i'm not using a solid piece of stair step.

Why not a one piece tread? It would be a whole lot easier and less work.
Going to also need finish nails as well as the glue. It just not going to stay in place while the glue dries.

As MIKE says, I love the PolyU adhesives... but rather then a caulk type PolyU glue... I might be inclined to use a liquid type (like Gorrilla)... but you're going to have to prefinish (not the glue part) the parts, to be able to preserve a stain finish and clean the squeeze out off.

+1 on one piece treads. But if you are gluing wood to wood, Titebond II or III would be my choice too. Properly done, it should never come apart plus you would maintain a nice tight joint. I wouldn't use a PL type glue in this situation.
