Default Plastex and loctite

Guys,

Looking to put up a 35" x 80" plas-tex polywall inside my trailer (replacing wallpaper). Half of the sheet will be on the wall and the other half is on the ceiling (curves up). Below is the link of the plastex product.



PLAS-TEX® PolyWall

Would using loctite paneling adhesive work? I won't be using any nails. Hopefully it will stick in a short time so I don't have to hold it. Anybody has any experience with it?

Thanks,

I'm 100% sure it's not going to work.
I tryed that exact material, with the same adhesive on a very slightly curved roof on a pump house a customer had made out of sanded plywood.
It just would not stay stuck.
We ended up having to use the white plastic rivit look things made for installing that type panel.

If you had a perfectly flat wall it may work, but around a curve, I do not see it happening.

Thanks. Maybe just do wallpaper and call it a day.
