rates of coverage for adhesive

Postby Josh » Fri Nov 03, 2006 4:05 am

Ok...here is the problem I have with a flooring adhesive application and rate of coverage.

A trowel sized 1/4" x 1/4" square notch held at a 90 degree angle will leave two beads of adhesive 1/4" wide and 1/8" high by 1" long for every square inch. The problem I am having is this: at this rate of application, how many square feet of material should be spread per US gallon? I am told by manufacturer that it should be 35 square feet per gallon but I am getting only 20.

I really need help...thank you
