Rated 4 out of 5 by product worked easy to use did what it was suposta do ....I dont think I got the coverage that they clame so get extra so your not waiting for more to come in...... February 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by carpet glue This adhesive worked as advertised. I bought a cheap 4 inch paint brush and cut off half the lenght to stiffen it up a little. Worked great as an applicator. Applied the glue, then the carpet I had pre cut to size. Glue was dry by next day. To attach carpet to livewell lids, used Scotch spray adhesive. Very satisfied with the glue. May 21, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Great! Just finished rebuilding my bass boat 3/15/12 and used this glue for the carpet. I was a bit concerned by reading some of the other reviews that 1 gal won't cover a 17' boat, or that the glue didn't set properly even after a few days. My guess is these people didn't have a clue...read directions.. I had a 1/4 of a gallon left over from my carpet job. I used a paint brush to apply the glue, (like a thick paint application) and then used the notched trowel to create the needed voids. Worked great and had about 20 minutes to adjust the carpet before the glue started to set. Make sure to dry fit the carpet before putting down the glue so your not messing up the glue coat. Used a rolling pin to apply pressure. Checked the adhesion last night and the carpet is down solid. I also know that in 10+ years when I do this job again, the carpet should come up without too much problem. Cleans up with warm water...had a small amount on my finger that got on the carpet and used a wet rag to clean it up. Can't wait to get out on the water and go fishing! March 20, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by carpet & glue I added bass pros premium carpet to my Lowe Rough Neck aluminum boat a week ago. I was a little nervous at first but was surprised at how easy it was. I have to admit that as a guy I tend to do the project first and then read the directions. I cleaned the boat and cut the carpet to fit. A pair of scissors worked better than the box cutter I started with. I peeled the carpet back and spread the glue onto the rubberised back of the carpet with a 4" wide scraper. I pushed this into place and worked my way to the other end of the boat doing about 2 to 3 ft at a time. I love the look, feel, and lower temperature of my boat. Around here 110 degrees is pretty common and this has extended my time on the water by a couple hours/day. I recommend this to anyone putting carpet in an aluminum boat July 29, 2011

A: 
Don't use pressure treated if you want to glue the carpet down. The problem you run into is that as the chemicals used for pressure treating leach back out of the wood, they destroy the bond of the glue.

A: 
It may, but I wouldn't use pressure treated lumber. Use exterior grade lumber, and put a few coats of West Systems epoxy on the wood. If it was me I would use a small amout of contact cement on the edges and staple underneath. Using this method you will never have to go back and do this job again.

I carpeted the bunkers on my old trailer with carpet scraps and stapled them on the sides. Any old carpet works, put the staples on the sides away from where contact with the boat will be.

A: 
Yes you can. I just completed a aluminum bass boat where the front platform was aluminum. A few keys... make sure surface is clean, sand area good to allow bonding, wet wipe clean twice, let dry, apply glue with a paint brush like you would put a thick paint coat on. Having a thin coat is important because aluminum is not porious.

A: 
Any scraper 2" to 4" will work well. I found it worked best to apply the glue to the back of the carpet rather than the seat.

Worked great for me on rubber backed marine carpet when gluing down to marine grade plywood. It is waterproof, but I cannot compare it to Synergistecs 240 as I have not used that glue.

A: 
Yes it will. The biggest thing to insure good results is to clean & prep the surface properly. After removing any residue, be sure & clean the surface with a solvent based cleaner, such as acetone. Using an orange based cleaner, or something not solvent based can result in a film being left on the surface, even if it's dry to the touch. After being exposed to water, the film is reactivated and will impact the adhesion of the glue negatively. Hope this helps, good luck!
