    Red Devil General Purpose Construction Adhesive is quite a bit cheaper than many of the fancier glues out there and yet works well for many direct mount ceiling tile and grid strips/tape projects. Professional-strength, VOC-compliant formula exceeds the performance requirements of ASTM C-557 and the American Plywood Association's AFG-01 specifications. It contains no ozone-depleting chemicals and is ideal for stone, marble, hardboard, gypsum wallboard, ceramic tile, slate, polyurethane and polystyrene foams.
    9.0 fl. oz (266ml)
    1 Tube/Cartridge

    Use on:

    • Pro-Lite Series
    • Designer Collection
    • Grid strips or tape

    Adheres to:

    • Polyurethane
    • Polystyrene Foams
    • PVC
    • Vinyl
    • Gypsum Wallboard/Sheet Rock
    • Hardboard
    • Marble
    • Wood
    • Stone
    • Metal

    If doing a direct mount ceiling, we recommend trying out on a sample tile to determine if it holds well for your particular installation surface. To reduce required hold time, you can also try applying the glue and waiting for a few minutes before pressing the tile to the ceiling. If it is determined that a faster setting glue is necessary, Loctite PowerGrab or Gorilla Construction Adhesive often work well.

    Excellent Adhesion

    Makes sure you place them correctly the first time, because there is no getting off the next day!

    Looks great, what a great room!

    I recently ordered Alexander 2x2 ceiling tiles to put up in my living room. Installation was quite easy. I did a glue up on my ceiling. I would recommend that if you have textured sheet rock for your ceiling, you will need to sand down the ceiling to create a good bonding surface. It’s also very important to find the exact center of your room, measure out in two directions and then proceed from there. I elected to use a different construction adhesive. I stayed with the Loctite brand but I use the power grab heavy duty. It grabs very quickly so you don’t have to hold in position very long. You need to have it in the right place within about two minutes. I was dealing with the raised tile so I gently heated some raises sections to make Cam lights and vents fit flush. I used this product in another room and was familiar with the application. I love this product and it will dress up and make any room look simply beautiful.

    Grid Strip Adhesive

    You definitely need the direct mount adhesive for the grid strips, they do not stay on without this adhesive. The adhesive is messy if you don't use just the right amount. I'm glad I had the adhesive to complete my project. Thanks for the service and the grid sample.

    Works well with the grid tape!

    If used as directed, this will give additional adhesive protection.

    Doesn't hold a vinyl tile in place, it falls right off, still need nails to attach it.

    Rodney, thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We are very sorry to hear that your adhesive didn't work.

If you are ever having an issue with an installation, please reach out to us so we can troubleshoot. We have a dedicated team here and would love to help make sure your project goes smoothly. Thanks again for your review, and for including us in your project!

    Works fine

    I used the adhesive at first until I realized that I didn't need it. My tracks are all new and the tape stuck just fine without it.

    Not needed...

    Didn't need the adhesive but appreciate the included tube for future use. Have no doubt it meets the standard set by the tiles and tape.
