Hey welcome to TYTAN Professional Videos. I’m James Davoli, the product manager. And today, in this video we’re talking about when to use drywall adhesive. Most commonly drywall adhesive is going to be used on wood studs in residential buildings, in some commercial buildings. Wood, as you may know, will bend and warp. It expands and contracts due to moisture in the air.
As it dries out, it will start to bend or warp a little bit and a lot of the reason drywall adhesive is used is to prevent screw pops. So screw pop happen whenever the wood is drying and starts to bend or warp and it wants to separate from the drywall that has been screwed on. But with the drywall adhesive, you are making a permanent bond with the backing of the drywall and the stud.
So it’s going to be more structurally sound, but also it’s going to keep the drywall from having this screw quite literally pop out of the wood and have a little bubble in your paint. Another reason would be building codes when you’re using a drywall adhesive in residential building, always check your code for your local area. You can use less fasteners depending on the code.
It’ll tell you different spacing or will tell you maybe the depth and things of this nature might change if you’re using adhesive versus if you’re not. So always check your residential building code to have a better understanding. But it can be an advantage. If you get to use less fasteners, that means less time trying to put drywall up.
I hope this video helps you like and comment. Thank you.
