Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mynameisIAN meh it works
Ran out of regular and this was what hd had. Over an hour and a half and it still wasn't tacky. I ended up clamping it. Had to wait another 5 hours before it set enough to continue. Save yourself some time and get the original.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chickencult Nothing better for gluing styrofoam sheets
I purchased this product last fall for an art project requiring me to laminate 14 sheets of two inch thick foam together and then carve. If you put on 2-3 coats on both surfaces and wait untill it tacks up they bond incredibly well. I was sceptical at first too of the waterbased products viscosity. The project Sat outside all winter and is still permanently glued together. The bond seems to get stronger with age. Follow the directions, don't get in a hurry, and you will be happy with this product.

Don't waste your time. Don't waste your money. Flat out, this product simply does not work. Rubber to rubber? Nope. Paper to rubber? Nope. Paper to paper? Haven't tried that yet. If Home Depot won't let me return this as defective, maybe I can use it to make my own post-it-notes.

I tried to use this to laminate a desk top. Didn't work at all. Complete garbage. Wished I would have checked reviews first. Buy the non-water based, red can of Weldwood That worked extremely well.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CharlieInMN A poor product
I tried this product because I was wary of the flammable fumes of some other products. I was adhering laminate to some mdf, and because do MN winter I wanted to do it indoors. I applied a generous amount, twice to both sides and followed all instructions.
When I started to use the j-roller after laying the laminate, it didn't stick at all. I am out the $12 for the cement, but much worse was the $40 mdf and $160 piece of laminate. I would like HD to pull this product and offer another one out there.

Purchased this as it was the only contact cement available where all the glues and adhesives are sold. Cement set up differently on laminate backing than mdf substrate, taking longer with laminate by about an hour. When both were set and didn't get any "leg", lifting of product when touched, I put the two pieces together, rolled, only to find that I could easily pull the two pieces apart and left with a mess. Don't waste your money on this product, buy the Wilsonart 600 - found this back in the in stock laminate section- duh. went on well, and pieces bonded on contact like its suppose to.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lilrabbit Quart size is nice for the small shop
I used this nonflammable contact cement to apply plastic laminate to a particle board counter-top substrate and to apply a layer of tempered hardboard to a plywood utility table-top. I applied it with a disposable foam roller. It dried quickly in a dry climate. Adhesion was instant as expected, and because my shop is pretty close to the furnace room, I like the nonflammable part.
Non-flammable does not mean the fumes are non toxic, so I did ventilate the shop and wear a mask, as I do with nearly everything anymore, but the smell was not too terrible.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JohnnyG Low odor alternative...
I'm in the middle of redoing one of my bathroom laminate couter tops. I grabbed this container and gave it a try. On a positive note there is NO odor at all. Cement is white and very watery. I used 2 coats per the instructions. The following day I routed my edges and damaged an edge. Needless to say I wasn't happy and pulled on the laminate and it was kinda easy to remove. Not as bad as what everyone else is saying, but it wasn't "super tight". I went and purchased the other (old red can gel) and it smells like a wicked paint odor. But it's holding.......
