Adhesive or not

Iv to stick/fix on 12m2 of 50mm polystyrene sheets to a concrete soffit. Would I still have to apply adhesive to the sheets or would the nylon mushrooms alone do the trick. The concrete soffit is 100% flat and level. Would the adhesive be overkill ?

Hello , is there a specification.
Have pull out tests been done to confirm that the fixing you are using is sufficient .
Which system are you using they would specify how they would install boards to a soffit

It depends on the spec... I like overkill personally :D

Adhesive and pin. Take into consideration the power of suction in a gale.

You might find one morning just the pins there.

Sempre system being used. We stuck the boards with thermo styrofoam adhesive and 6 pins per board after that(1mx500mm). I found the adhesive okish but glad we pinned aswell. Thanks guy's [emoji106][emoji106]
