Is this glue suitable for plywood to go onto concrete floor
The Evo-Stik Wood Adhesive Polyurethane 310 ml is a moisture curing single part resin product primarily designed for bonding wood to wood but can also be used for bonding wood to other surfaces such as concrete, metal, brick and some plastics although you need to ensure that at least one of the surfaces being bonded is porous. As such whilst the product can bond wood to concrete in general, as with any application, during curing, it needs to be clamped or be put under load which is generally not practical for flooring. Consequently for a flooring application where plywood is being bonded to concrete a suitable flooring adhesive would normally be used.

Is this product thixotropic?
By thixotropic (as explained on Wikipedia) I mean is this adhesive suitable for overhead fixing without dripping? As for example, Timber Tec which is suitable for all applications, including boatbuilding. I want to fix some windows in a garage and glue all round the opening without the adhesive running down. I want the glue to stay where I put it, otherwise it becomes very messy and it is very difficult (and time consuming) to clean from skin and work piece.
The Evo-Stik Polyurethane Wood Adhesive is a thixotropic paste and requires one of the surfaces being bonded to be porous. Once applied and the surfaces have been brought together, it requires clamping during the cure time. Consequently, due to the nature of the application, the product will not be suitable in this instance.
