Should I sand landau foam before gluing?

I started to glue my headliner foam to the backboard tonight, but stopped because I wasn't sure if I should scuff the surface of the 1/8 landau foam before applying the glue. I think I read somewhere that there's a coating on the foam that may break away from the foam core causing a saggy headliner. I'm using Helmetin green glue and the final headliner material will be vinyl, and the total headliner size is 42 X 75 so I don't want it to screw up. Thanks for any replies. Dan

I try and scuff the surface before adding glue. BUT, you would be better off getting info from one of the guys here that makes a living doing the work.

i always sand the foam for headliners. some landau foams do have a sort of clear film on them that the glue doesnt stick well to. Be careful sanding it, it is very easy to scuff, nick, or sand grooves in from your fingers.

I always sand with sandpaper or scuff with a scotch-brite pad.Usually sand with paper though.
