When you are installing plywood sheets, especially over your sheetrock, it is important that you have the correct tool for spreading the glue. There are many types of spreaders on the market, but a few are better than others at their job of spreading the glue evenly. Before you purchase one, it is a good idea to find out exactly what sort of tool is required for the job at hand.
First, take a look at your plywood. Has it been stained? Is it glossy or matte? If it has been pre-treated or painted, then you will need something to spread the glue over it. This can be a simple roll of aluminum foil or simply a piece of scrap plywood to which you can apply the glue.
A good type of spreader to use when laying plywood over a sheet of wood filler is a roller. There are many types available and they are available in many different sizes. You will want to choose a spreader that is able to cover a fairly large area. You may also want to consider adding a cover plate so that you can easily remove the adhesive once you are finished. Another idea is to buy a roller with a hook on the end for attaching it to the plywood.
If you are going to be laying plywood over a flat surface, such as a tile or concrete floor, then you are probably looking for a spreader that is going to adhere very well. The spreaders you will need depend a lot on how much work you need to do and the amount of material you will be spreading. When choosing a spreader, there are a number of things to consider. For example, the spreader needs to be able to fit around the surface you are going to lay plywood over. It is also important to make sure the spreader is easy to clean. As mentioned previously, some spreaders can be messy if not handled correctly.
Also, you are going to want to think about how the spreader is going to be used. Are you going to be using it to spread the glue over the entire surface or just a part of it? Will you be attaching a special effect, such as a mold, to your plywood? The spreader you use should be able to withstand all kinds of use and it should be able to fit around any part of the plywood. Once you know the type of spreader that will be used, the next step is to find one that will work best with it. For example, some spreaders are heavier and work better with heavy-duty materials. While other spreaders are lighter and work better with lighter materials.
Once you have found a plywood glue spreader that works best for you, read the manufacturer's directions for use. Although some spreaders will work with almost any plywood, they are more likely to work better with certain types of plywood than others. You will also want to use caution when using these spreaders because they can come off more easily.
