I purchased this to put underneath some green carpeting I purchase for my outdoor oasis room The room has no roof so it is exposed to the elements. i was told by the home depot sales person who cut the carpeting that this was what is used to secure the green carpeting . So I put the glue down as instructed. This stuff gets all over everything clothes, hands, anything you touch, and when you are done putting it down and put the carpet over it it stains permanently through the carpet horribly leaving large white spots on the surface.. Looks like bird droppings... I now have to tear this stuff up and figure out now if I am going to just paint the ground with driveway paint or start all over again.

The Roberts 6700 carpet adhesive worked great for me. I had to replace the floor in my recessed front porch and after installing a rubber membrane with rubber cement on 3/4" AC plywood the Roberts adhesive glued my new Lancers Marine capret down like a professional installation. I bought my $2.97 Roberts dual V notched trowel and it works great, all the above items, adhesive, trowl and a 6'x20's roll or Lancers marine carpet came to only 156 bux so a very budget friendly price on this project.

When applying this product over plywood or metal, be careful not to apply too much. I learned the hard way by using a 1/8”notched trowel. It takes forever to cure and you get some bleed through and bleed over. I ended up using a 2" flat end flexible putty knife or 1/16” notched putty knife and applied an even coat only thick enough so that you can't see the substrate material. I used this adhesive to re-carpet my bass boat and this method worked great for both, the metal doors and the plywood decks. Wait about 45 minutes before applying the carpet to the substrate. Make SURE you wait 72 hours before you get the carpet wet and it will stay down.
This method is my preference, you need to do what you feel is right for you.

I purchased this product to install outdoor carpet, I made sure the area was clean and dry.. but after three days it still was not dry.. and until it dries you can not let it get wet.... this stuff is going back to the store

Very simple to use, thickness of coating not important as carpet & plywood adjust. Easy to move & adjust before curing. A little messy, but made for DIY'ers

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sandman Easy to apply with notched trowel and fast cleanup with water
The product is easy to apply and 1 gallon will cover 80 sq. ft. with most outdoor carpets - depend on the backing and depth of the weave as to how thick the adhesive needs to be. Too thin a layer and the carpet will pull away.
Low odor and tools cleanup with water which are positives.
The adhesion is marginal even at a gallon per 80 sq. ft. on wood for carpet so next time I will be using the Liquid Nails carpet adhesive.

I purchased some 6'x8' remnant outdoor carpeting and Roberts 6700 from Home Depot to redo our porch. The adhesive has the consistency of toothpaste or pudding, and was easy to work with, although you should do relatively small sections as a time as it sets up somewhat fast. It's tacky even when wet, which means you should be careful with clothes and wear gloves, but otherwise this quality helps a lot. I say that because my porch project includes taking the carpet at 90* bends over the edge. Even while wet, this adhesive had the power to hold the carpet against the side and not let it pull away. I find I'm going to have to use more than quoted on the directions (I think 1gal to ~90 sq. ft) as there is old glue that is near impossible to get off, leaving the surface a bit porous... but otherwise the quoted amount should be plenty.
Just my experience, I did not have the adhesive bleed through like the other reviewer. The carpet I used, while thin, did utilize a latex backing which may have been a barrier, but also I did use a 'V' cut trowl to spread it, which may have resulted in less product *to* bleed through? Either way, this stuff is very sticky and sets fast, so you surely don't need to overdo it, a little goes a long way.
Easy to spread/work with, sets fast, excellent bond, 'enironmentally safe', low odor. I don't think it could perform much better in my experience.
