Glue for Parquet Repair?


Fixing a parquet floor after a small flood. Can't find anything labeled "parquet glue" in the stores, staff gives me funny looks when I mention parquet.
Any suggestions? I'm thinking construction adhesive (PL2000 sort of thing) if all else fails.
TIA, Red

Are you for real ?
If you don't know what kind of glue to use on a wood floor, then you have no business doing anything with/to it...
Have you let the floor dry out completely by means of using professional strength dehumidifiers ? Until the wood gets back to its normal percentage of moisture content, you will not be able to glue it back together as the pieces of the puzzle won't fit in the spaces they need to go into...
Honestly depending on how bad the damage is it is better to replace your entire floor than try fussing around with gluing it back together, as if it came apart, it is also likely water-stained as well...

Well, it is only my opinion, but I seem to be real enough. Issues with the corn flakes this morning?
When I laid the floor 15 years ago, I used a product clearly labeled "glue for parquet flooring". No such thing on the shelves now. Figured somebody in this group does these things more often than once every 15 years.
All the water damage has been cut out, new OSB laid, saved some tile bundles from the original install (still in the original packaging) so the finish matches, etc. Not sure why I'd want to replace 600 ft2 of flooring vs a 30 ft2 patch.
Red. Really.

I'd go for carpet cement. It'll stay pliable and allow the wood to move slightly.

I'll look into that, thanks. Also looked at glue (mastic?) for tileboard (barkerboard).
I suppose any adhesive that's applied with a notched trowel would "work".

HD sells an adhesive for gluing down wood floors. Unfortunately, minimum size is 4 gallon can, costing $116. Look in the flooring section.
As to the staff's looks, perhaps they thought you were asking for an adhesive made with a popular brand of margarine --
