Default Construction Adhesive or Wood Glue??

Alright, I am in the process of walling my car. I am doing 2 layers all around, but I put baffle on in single layers for certain reasons, when I put the 2nd layer on...I thought about using construction adhesive because it does not run as fast as wood glue does.

Is the contact as good on construction adhesive vs wood glue?

Which is best for this application?

If you give me an answer please explain why.


Thanks!

wood glue would create a stronger bond between two pieces of wood and you can spread it evenly to avoid runs

The only construction adhesive I would personally use is PL premium.

Stay far away from liquid nails. That stuff, in my experiences, is total crap that doesn't bond nearly as well as PL or regular wood glue.

Would you use PL premium over wood glue in this application?

Well, When this thing is running up and down...Even spred evenly it will still drip off the bottom while applying...I have a shitload of glue on my carpet already from this same thing last night.

suggestion..

either use "just enough" so the drips are small.

Or

buy the gallon container and a bucket... and a paintbrush. [I like doing this for Elmer's wood glue]


note: Elmer's wood glue cleans up with water.
{remove as much glue as you can before adding water to fabric/carpet or you'll be "painting" the fabric/carpet by trying to get the glue out}

I use titebond II haha. I guess I have not even tried to clean any of it up, I have alot of work to do inside yet and know it is going to get filthy...But I figured if construction adhesive was good I would use that and save the mess, but it looks like wood glue is taking the cake.

I always use wood glue whenever possible, because as stated it creates a chemical bond between the two pieces of wood.

PL does make a wood adhesive that I would try.

I only use PL Premium around the inner and outer seams of street boxes.

Titebond II is what i use as the actual adhesive.

For my wall, I also use Titebond II in NON-Vertical applications.
That means.. gluing things to the floor or gluing the floor to something.
I also use Titebond II to glue multiple layers together too.

For everything else-
Vertical applications, oblong areas and inner\outer seams, I use Fasco 110.

If you want the "God" bond, you use Fasco 110.

Sometimes, i'll mix Titebond II and Fasco 110 together when gluing certain layers together depending on application.

My only suggestion it per drill a few holes with screws in the top piece, spread the glue around with a brush, it helps prevent runs. And hustle you ass to get that top baffle on and screwed in.
You could try laying paper towel under if you can
