Titebond Drywall Adhesive is specifically designed for applying drywall to wood, hardboard, gypsum wallboard, cold-rolled steel and aluminum. Its strong initial tack allows the panels to be positioned quickly without slipping. Titebond Drywall Adhesive fills irregularities and gaps in substrates, providing a strong bond and a more solid backup surface. It is unaffected by moisture and resists aging - it will not become hard or brittle with age. It exceeds the ASTM C557 specification.
