PL400 vs. Gorilla Glue---Stair Tread

Hello. Another pretty easy question, I think.

I need to glue 2 pieces of Pergo to a tread--one thin strip back towards the riser and one longer piece in front--I'll be putting the glue in the groove prior to putting the tongue in the groove...with me so far??

Would Gorilla Glue work in the groove?? or should I stick with the PL400 I'm using to adhere the Pergo to the treads and risers?? I ask because the Gorilla Glue would bead nicely in the groove and the clean-up would be minimal. But I want ultimate, permanent adherance. The Pergo video suggests their own Pergo glue, but I can't imagine it's as good as PL400 or maybe as Gorilla Glue.

Thanks!

Steve

I'm not familiar with the PL400, but I can tell you the Gorilla glue will probably outlast the house. Just remember to mist the area lightly with water first and that it will expand some as it cures.

Im not a fan of the PL400. Takes a little to long to set up. I use Thompson's TiteBond Construction adhesive mostly and used that to glue down all my oak stair end caps and risers. This stuff is Good...!
