      Comments about Mapei 5 Gallon Light Weight Adhesive:

      The product is excellent. The container design is poor. 1/2 inch of dried product was wasted when the container was first opened. The lid does not reseal which causes product to dry overnight. I would recommend the product, I would not recommend the 5 gallon container.

                          Keep opened product from freezing and you can cover the surface of the glue directly with plastic wrap to prevent it from drying out in the bucket. Put the cover back on as tightly as you can and this will last for this project.
