Excellent adhesive

I used the direct mount adhesive and was not disappointed. It grabbed the ceiling quickly and within 30 seconds I could move on to the next tile.

Holds up well

Helps hold the tape up. Have had it up for three weeks and it has not showed any sign of coming loose.

needed to get locktite instead

this adhesive was not as strong as we wanted and we ended up having to buy a Liquid Nails and Locktite brands to have peace of mind.

Looks great, doesnít look like a drop ceiling

The plastic tiles are easy to cut and place and ceiling strips were just the right touch

doesn't work as it should

don't waste money or time on this, it doesn't work pieces start falling down with time. We used liquid nail instead. Not sure company sells this....based on reviews they know it is an issue. I purchased it and now feel stupid because it was in the reviews.

Weíre very sorry to hear you had a poor experience with this adhesive.We have tested this brand many times and found it has the strength necessary to work well with most projects that require the installation of grid strips, which is why it has been chosen as the adhesive we provide with every order of strips or tape. Unfortunately, since every project is different, it would be difficult to determine why this adhesive didnít perform as well on your ceiling, but excess dust, dirt, or paint on a grid system can conflict with any adhesive and prevent a strong bond. Weíre happy that you found another adhesive that worked better for you, and we appreciate your feedback!

Didn't Work

It could have been because we were sticking to acoustic tiles, but this stick'em did not work at all. We had to find something else that did.

Outstanding product and customer service

We used these tiles on the ceiling of our RV. The tiles were easy to install and are getting rave reviews from other RVírs who havenít seen anything like this before. Customer service couldnít have been better either. Well done!!

easy to install

I like the direct mount tiles. They are easy to put up. I had purchased direct mount tiles for an earlier project so it was an easy choice to buy again. While I did use the adhesive, we also used staples on the edges for added support. The reviews I read before purchasing the first time recommended staples as well and I agree that they are needed.

Some corners it works great, others not so much

It probably works great on smooth or newer grid but older grids might want to use a hot glue gun and a lot of attention.

Didn't hold like I hoped

I don't know, if the regal ceiling tiles were slightly worped, or if tis adhesive was just not strong enough, but this would not keep it glued down, even laying flat before hanging it upright on the door.

We first purchased Fast Grab adhesive, then this product came with our grid strips, so we tried it, and didnít like this one quite as well, but it did work well.

It's adhesive

It's construction adhesive. Just like any other. If you like other construction adhesive you'll like this one.

Easy to work with

Be sure to use a small hole or this will apply too thick and come past the tile.

Read the instructions!

The product worked just fine when applied to the entire strip and not the three dabs mentioned somewhere in the instructions.

I do not recommned this adhesive.

I recommend the Gorilla adhesive. This one is not good. The strips kept coming off.

Thank you so much for letting us know of the issue. I'm so sorry that you experienced this but am glad that you let us know so we could resolve this for you.

Not a good choice

This product is difficult to use on ceiling tiles. It is messy and does not adhere right away. you have to hold the tile up with your arms for several minutes to get it to adhere and stay in place. I do not recommend it. It does not hold well. Several tiles dropped down and did not stay up unless held manually in place.

I am very sorry to hear about the issue with the adhesive. We will be reaching out to you to troubleshoot the issue for quality control.

stay away

this glue did not work very well at all. if there is a slight curve/recess in the ceiling, the tile will not stay up nicely. i purchased some "construction glue" from Home Depot, it worked very well. i had no problems what so ever with it. i highly recommend it.

We used staples in addition to the direct mount adhesive for extra support, but wasn't even necessary. Tiles stayed up alone with just the adhesive.

Finished out very nice.

Using the direct mount adhesive made the installation quick and easy. Really a strong bonding material, can think of many other uses for this material.

Works Great

We used this adhesive to adhere the Cornerstone Ceiling Tiles as well as some of the decorative grid strips (only where the strips loosened over time) to our bathroom ceiling. It worked very well and was easy to clean up.

Didn't work so good for me.

I ended up stapling tiles to ceiling as adhesive wouldn't hold the tiles up on the ceiling by itself, maybe if used on a vertical wall, don"t know.
