This glue certainly sticks....everywhere ! Difficult to clean up and expensive to purchase also the cleaning wipes are expensive and no one warned us that they were required.
My biggest complaint is the amount of waste as the product hardens in the can once opened. I took a hint from youtube and cut plastic discs to lay on the surface which helped, butter still had 25% waste.
I regret my decision to glue down the floor insted of nailing as I have done previously. Glue is very expensive, slow and messy.
Why isn't it available in 1 gallon cans - which would be perfectly sized for daily batch use.
I have purchased 5 - 4 gallon buckets and \Hate it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RemarkablePropertyMgmt Good product for the price
Used this adhesive for gluing strand bamboo over concrete flooring. I liked the thickness of the glue but have to be careful of the strings. I would recommend using "kleen sweep" adhesive cleaner for quick removal of additional adhesive and cleaning tools.
I have used MORNING STAR BAMBOO ADHESIVE quite a bit before. first time for this product. the cost is much less than morning star and yeilds about the same for square footage
no instructions on the pail but home depot web site has detailed instructions. I used the "wet" method for install, very quick and not too much clean up. 120 sq ft bedroom took about 4 hours

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!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by coyote 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.

The glue was good but the first inch on the top was already hardened when I opened the can.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by susan 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??

GREAT PRODUCT BUT I THOUGHT THE PRICE COULD BE A LITTLE MORE REASONABLE.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RevGS7 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!
