PL Premium Construction Adhesive

PL-Premium construction adhesive 

Best for exterior and internal wet area use (Compared with PL-375 it is 50% more extensive and has higher VOC).

PL Premium is by far the best general purpose construction adhesive.  You can use it to stick pretty much anything apart from Polystyrene.  Buy it in the 28 oz tubes as it's much cheaper that way.
