I must correct what I said, it suggests that we use the adhesive everywhere. We
use the 3M adhesive when we add joists, drags, and similar wood framing. We do
not use it underneath plywood shear panels. I would not at all be surprised if
the adhesive improved the performance of shear panels, but we feel there is
insufficient published testing to avoid the potential liability issues of
varying from the standard practice.
