Been using it for years on EPDM (rubber roof systems). A little heavier bodied than an exclusive rubber roof adhesive but it still works well if you do a smaller area.

    I have used contact cement on and off for many years. The first time was in high school shop where We were taught in shop class to use it to attach Formica to wood. The project I used it for this time was to apply some vinyl fabric to plywood and it is what was recomended by the vinyl retailer. I made a new bed cover out of plywood. It came out real well but it would be better if you had help because once the vinyl is applied you can move it. Anyway we are living in an age where there is a huge choice of adhesives on the market which is a good thing but for certain jobs good old fashioned contact cement can't be beat.

    Grip pad cane off the base of my wife’s laptop. After some research on what adhesive to use I found this to be the only viable option. Works like a champ and no concerns over breakdown from heat or if I need to remove (for access to battery) in the future.

    Worked well for my particular application. I needed to glue the toe-kick boards that go with the new, big-box kitchen cabinets we installed, into place. In our situation, the ceramic floor tile in the kitchen was installed after the original cabinets. So, when we pulled the originals and installed the new ones, the tile did not span all the way to base of the new cabinets, leaving a 1 1/2" gap. We furred out the new cabinets' toe-kicks with 2x4s cut to length and screwed into the base of the cabinets with deck screws. We then used this contact cement on both the 2x4s and toe-kick board's backs per instructions and pressed them into place. They're now secure with no visible means of attachment--a job well done.

    I used Weldwood contact cement to glue rubber bumpers to Oak pool table rails. We have been using the table for a couple weeks now and there is no sign of the glue failing. It worked better than expected and it was just the right amount that I didn't have to store any leftovers.

    Over the years, have I bought a lot of Weldwood Contact Cement. Recently, after a move, I needed some of the contact cement for safety handles in the tub/shower area that would support an old man like me and prevent a slip and fall. I found my gallon can of Weldwood Contact Cement that I bought several years ago. I was saddened that I didn't use a hammer to close the can because when I opened it I had a quarter of a can of rubber cushion. So, back to Home Depot for this replacement. Besides the tub fix, I have some trim on my storm doors that need assistance and . . . . . . I'm sure I will find many more needy applications ! ! ! Darrell

    This is a contact cement, and it works great, if you know how to use it. What you have to do is apply it to both side of what you're planning to glue. As soon as you have both sides covered connect the two sides like you're gluing it together. Then, pull the two sides apart once again. Yes, I know, this is counter-intuitive to everything you've ever learned about glues. What you want to do is to assure that both sides of the have a good amount of cement, and you wipe off the excess. With the two sides pulled apart my usual waiting time is 10 minutes. Now, here's the most important thing. When you re-attach the two sides after ten minutes it grabs instantly. To the point that getting it apart once again is difficult, if not impossible. Let it cure overnight. I write a blog for radio controlled airplanes and evaluate adhesives all the time. This is on par with my current favorite adhesive that costs more than twice per ounce as DAP. The only reason I don't switch over to DAP is that it has a slight yellow cast which looks bad on white foam. But, if you clean it up as you apply it, it's not a problem. With RC planes, if you have a weak adhesive the plane will fall apart in flight.

      Not for Vinly
      I got this product because the store ran out of the normal 3M spray adhesive. It caused my vinyl to curl up and it's not sticking. I will now be driving out of my way 30 miles just to go get the spray adhesive since I have drained the rest of the stores. Very upset lost a few pieces of tile because of this. the tiles that lay flat are the ones that I did with the spray adhesive.

        I used this about a month ago to add my own half soles and heels to a leather soled shoes since I don't have access to a shoe cobbler. This worked wonderfully for that, and I strongly recommend this specific version with toulene. The toulene free contact cements have been virtually useless in my experience. Keep in mind, it is important to pay close attention to the drying time. If you can, test a thin layer on something else - even just a piece of paper or scrap wood - to know how long to wait and to be sure you're not letting it sit too long. The first sole, I felt like I jumped the gun and applied to too early but it worked well anyway. The second one I made myself wait a bit longer and that one didn't attach well. During the very short window where it could be adjusted, I removed the half sole and reapplied the DAP Weldwood contact cement to both surfaces, made myself wait a full 15 minutes, and still had problems getting it to attach evenly. I managed to make it work, but it was more difficult and there was a period where I wasn't sure if that shoe would be usable or not. In hindsight, I realized that in the warm, somewhat dry environment in which I was working, it was drying a good deal faster than the estimated "at least 15 minutes". I waited TOO long and had some patches drying completely instead of remaining tacky enough to adhere. As I said, I was able to make it work anyway, but this product will serve you much better if you take a few minutes in advance to test out the drying time in your work area. Once this product adheres, it's there for good. Taking a little time (even up to an hour, if you're in a humid environment) to know how best to use this is much easier and will go much faster than having to correct a mistake if you get it wrong. In the photo, if you look toward the heel you can see one of the gaps where the contact cement didn't adhere well. (There are others, but they don't show up as well). I used a small syringe to get the contact cement into some small gaps around the edges. I let both shoes "cure" for about 36 hours, covered in a soft towel and positioned carefully under heavy bricks. I used shoe trees in both shoes to keep their shape under the weight. I applied the half soles on December 5th, and so far they've held up beautifully even in inclement weather. Before wearing them, I used a dremmel to carefully sand down the edges of the rubber half soles so they were even with the leather soles. This gave me a chance to carefully inspect the edges and verify that the contact cement was even and intact all the way around. I absolutely intend to use this again, and now that I know how it performs, future jobs will go much more quickly.

          Contact Cement is great glue. Be sure to put a thin coating of glue on both surfaces then wait for the glue to have a dull appearance. When you put the two surfaces together, be sure they are where you want them. You will not be able to reposition.
