    Adhesive?

    Glue RSN to CC foam Help

    I have had contact cement fail due to flexing.

    Try a fabric store or an automotive repair shop for ideas.

    Be sure to post results here.

    ^^^ That's right. Go to the fabric store or the craft department of a big store and get fabric glue. It'll work and stay flexible. Good luck!!!

    I believe 3M spray adhesive Super 77 would work. I made a pot cozy from CCF and glued the joint with Super 77 works great. I believe the upholstery shop where I work uses it quite a bit on various leathers and foams etc.
    Good luck,

    +1 for the GM adhesive. Sticks like crazy and stays flexible.

    What about the 3M stuff usually used in Cuban fiber projects?

    +1 to Redoleary's suggestion, that 3m 77 aresol is great stuff. It seems to have working poperties like contact cement so you may want to reherse your application before hand. Or for that matter get a helper to lend a spare hand. Repositioning is not a strong suit of this product. Also I'd be mindful of the how much product you are using with respect to soaking through the fabric. Test first!

    Don't forget to invert the can and clear the nossel after use.

    Another +1 for 3m 77 spray. Should hold up very well.

    I would think the 3M tape used for making cuben items would work great.
    IF you have some left over. It's pretty spendy.
    But I have used it once to test sticking cuben to sil. Worked great.
