Answer: 
The only thing that came close to removing the dried glue was WD40 using a Mr Clean scrub pad. You would need to try this method in an inconspicuous spot to see what it does to your finish. My floor was a solid bamboo product with a very hard finish, but the 1509 mastic etched the finish permanently. Good luck. You mad need to refinish the floor.

Answer: 
In the recent pro construction guide, available for free at the pro desk, Jorge Calvillo from Fort Worth suggests using WD-40 and a rag to remove dried adhesive from the surface of glued down wood flooring without harming the finish. What doesn't this stuff do???

Answer: 
CJ-
This product is not cement based. If the adhesive inside is thick it means that it has been exposed to moisture and has cured. There is no way to thin it. I hope this helps, should you have any further questions please contact Roberts customer service at (866) 435-8665. Thank you for choosing Roberts!

Answer: 
Not that I heard of yet. Use moisture barrier of 15 weight tar paper/ asphalt felt paper between your two substrates you are installing flooring on top of. 1/2" plywood on joist, vapor barrier/moisture barrier, then 5/8ths or 3/4" OSB on top or whatever your final contact wood to adhesive is.

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by flooring adhesive this product obviously was very messy to deal with. after applying it you have to be careful of what you are gluing down to the floor, as it will slide, make sure you have the proper wedges for what ever project your doing! May 28, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Adhesive was old and thick We had a professional installer, lay our hand scraped bamboo floor. The flooring was perfect for our rustic cabin. However the adhesive was old, thick and difficult to spread. We ended up needing more adhesive than recommended because it would not spread efficiently. I had to make a 4 hr return trip to get more adhesive so the job could be finished on time. Home depot provided us with a 20% discount. I would recommend that you secure your adhesive through another distributor or check the bucket well in advance of your floor being laid. April 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bamboo flooring glue The glue was good but the first inch on the top was already hardened when I opened the can. April 26, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Alot more messy than the old stuff I last installed wood flooring about 13 years ago. The old mastic I used then was a lot easier to use than this stuff. This may have more of a cushioning effect but it foams and gets stuck in the cracks and oozes out between edges and makes gaps because it pushes them apart. Or maybe since I am 13 years older I am getting too old for this stuff?? November 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GOOD PRODUCT GREAT PRODUCT BUT I THOUGHT THE PRICE COULD BE A LITTLE MORE REASONABLE. September 22, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Blush..... TONY of Savanna, GA was exactly right on the money! Sadly, I red his review after I was 1/2 done and frustrated with my inability to lay the bamboo floor as I expected it should go down. Don't know the answer, but this is NOT it. August 2, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by A sticky mess I purchased three cans of this very expensive adhesive and the first can I opened had about an inch of hardened glue. I had to use a knife to cut away that layer. This product also expands while exposed to the air so you have to work it quickly and I mean work it. At first it was fairly easy to spread, but the longer the can was open, the harder it became. Another problem with the expanding is after your flooring has been put down and you are several row ahead, you can look back and see it coming up between the boards. What a pain! BTW- make sure you purchase the wipes because if you do not, you will regret it! June 10, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by x old, looks was open before, it was hard to spread. come out between wood peacees June 30, 2015
