Glue for plasterboard: selection criteria

Among the variety of modern materials for construction, which is used to decorate walls, is well-deserved plasterboard. A similar choice of most buyers and builders is based on the fact that it has a lot of advantages, among which environmental friendliness and perfectly smooth surface after decoration. This material manifests itself perfectly with finishing materials if the glue is properly correct.


To reduce the cost of installing plasterboard sheets with the use of profiles, there is an alternative way to perform these works, which involves the purchase of special glue.

In addition to the main purpose of plasterboard glue can be used for:

  • fastening mineral insulation;
  • plaster panels;
  • aerated concrete plates;
  • Polystyrene materials.

Glue for GLC – products that apply only for internal works. Like any building material, the composition has advantages, among which simplicity is allocated and fast installation. The surface for salable sheets from drywall does not need to be previously aligned, it is enough to clean it from contamination. This composition is economical. Giving preference to this method of installation of products, you can save money and the amount of glue in comparison with the work involving the use of profiles. Working with similar multifunctional composition will allow high quality and durability of interior decoration.

Types and characteristics of glue

The characteristics of the adhesive solution directly depend on its composition.

Mounting glue

Mounting glue requires strict compliance with the instructions for cooking. This information manufacturers indicate directly on the package. Work with it is performed using a spatula. The composition is applied to the surface with circular motions. Gaps between smears should be from 15 to 30 cm.

When glueing the GLCs under special control should be uniformity of their installation. For this use the construction level. If necessary, you can adjust the location of plasterboard sheets, but no later than 10-15 minutes after gluing the material to the surface. Mounting glue for GCC was originally used as a tile composition. However, due to its moisture resistance, environmental friendliness and resistance to low temperatures, the composition is considered universal.

Mounting foam

Working with the installation foam is carried out according to the following technology:

  • Make 8-9 holes in the sheet, around each produce drilling;
  • The panels are glued with pieces of foam rubber, leaving the gap from the holes at a distance of 10 cm;
  • The sheet is attached to the wall screws and washers;
  • In the holes poured the composition;
  • Washers remove;
  • Screws twist until.

Gypsum mastic

Gypsum species consists of glue and lime. To prepare such mastic, you need to pour glue with water for 15 hours, after its swelling, lime is added, already diluted in water. Usually, a steam bath or gas stove is used to obtain a thick consistency. In conclusion, gypsum is injected into the solution. The advantages of this type of adhesive include the absence of shrinkage after complete drying and antibacterial properties. Therefore, such a composition is recommended to purchase for rooms with a high probability of mold and fungus.

With sawdust

There is a mastic with sawdust. A similar adhesive solution in thickness resembles sour cream. To prepare gypsopilic mastic you need to mix plaster and sawdust in the ratio of 4: 1 and add glue (on 1 liter of water 25 grams of dry composition).

Sulfate-alcohol mixture involves mixing water and bards in proportion 4: 1. Gypsum consumption is determined based on the consistency of the resulting composition. Ready gypsum mixes are distinguished by good plasticity and provide additional sound insulation. A positive feature of such a composition is its ability to take the surface shape, which is especially important in situations when it is necessary to align the wall.

Special compositions

Special glue for drywall is released in cylinders. Usually it is enough for 15 squares of the square. Application technology implies treatment with surface composition throughout the perimeter with further wrapping of the plane alone. At the same time, the strips of adhesive are made on the basis every 30 cm.

Elastic polyurethane composition produced in cylinders. It is intended for laying GLC and seams. In addition, he manifested itself well as glue or ceramic tile glue. Working with it is performed using a special construction pistol. Sometimes the polyurethane glue includes fibers of polystyrene foams, which are beneficial affecting the den.

How to choose?

To make the right choice, buying glitter for plasterboard sheets, you should take into account the type of surface from which you need to work. More often experts have to work with concrete, brick walls. Sometimes in the work you have to deal with the penplex that surfaces are insulated. Plasterboard to polyplex are glued with plaster composition. Brick walls, aerated concrete, gasoblock and shells suggest the installation of plasterboard sheets on a gypsum solution. This option is the most economical and efficient, because on average, 1 m2 will require 5 kg of mixture.

For concrete grounds with minimal curvature, it is recommended to stay on one of the following options:

  • mounting foam;
  • Gypsum glue;
  • Cement composition for tiles;
  • putty on acrylic or plaster basis;
  • Polyurethane glue composition.

To glue the sheets of plasterboard to polystyrene foam, acrylic putty and glue-foam are suitable. Glick on a plasterboard surface can be almost any kind of glue. However, for a small seam between materials and the maximum preservation of the area of ​​the room it is worth using silicone composition or liquid nails. To glue the tiles on drywall in the kitchen or bathroom, you can use silicone sealant or adhesive compositions for tile. If you have to work with the window slopes from GLK, most experts advise to glue the surfaces with each other acrylic putty.

Decorative ceiling elements will be better held on the ground, if they sample them with liquid nails or synthetic adhesive composition (they will allow you to carefully attach the surface of the plinth or baguette). Choosing glue for work in large rooms, it is important to refer to the cost of the consumption, so you should stop your choice on mixes in bags. Glk Many are called “dry plaster”, because after installing the material, you can immediately start finishing.


Thanks to modern technical capabilities, construction supermarkets presented products of a huge number of manufacturers for repair work. This product is represented by well-known world trademarks and domestic firms.


Knauf remains in the list of leaders in the production of building goods. Many specialists prefer precisely this product. The adhesive compositions represented by the company have excellent quality with a minimum level of consumption during the installation of plasterboard.

The main advantages of German products are:

  • warranty on all types of goods;
  • small rock fitness mixtures;
  • Excellent compatibility with GLK, made by other manufacturers.


Also in demand was a gypsum mixture of the brand “VOLMA”. It has the best indicators of plasticity material. This series is more accessible at cost than German products Knauf Perlfix. But the consumption of adhesive composition they have about the same.


A series of universal adhesive compositions “Titan” on the Russian construction market is very popular. Remedy has good adhesion. It is compatible with many materials, including plasterboard.


Henkel company produces a line of construction adhesive compositions of the Ceresit brand. Mixes are popular in Europe and the Russian market due to the high quality of products. Ceresit CM 11 is used for drywall cm 11, recommended for installation indoors with high humidity.


So that the plasterboard sheets are better glued, the surface under installation is to prepare. This process is priming and cleaning. Preparation of glue to work (in the case of using gypsum powder compositions) involves breeding and stirring with a drill with a nozzle.

The technology of applying the mixture is to lay the composition in the form of small pellets on the surface of the sheet at a distance of 20 cm. You can distribute the composition directly to the working surface. Then the GKK is applied to the wall and press for high-quality gluing. The alignment of the material is worth carrying out a rubber hammer.

To enclose plasterboard ceiling, it is more convenient to use for fasteners of a dowel. They will help keep the material before it is complete drying, so that the shear sheet is made as high quality as possible. Plasterboard – high-quality material for creating all sorts of designs, wall decorations and ceiling. However, the improper sealing of seams between sheets can lead to the formation of cracks. It is important to spend these works using plaster. The type of composition should be selected depending on how the finish will be performed on. After drying the composition, the surface is fully ready for the finishing finish: the walls are placed by wallpaper canvases, paint or decorate by any selected way.
