Gluing foam weather stripping to plywood edge

I have 1-1/4 in. x 1-1/4 in. x 42 in. Foam Air Conditioner Weatherstrip and I want to glue it to the EDGE of ĺ plywood as a seal. I have yellow wood glue, but I’m not sure if there would be something better to use to attach the foam. I just need it to stay in place as I push the plywood against a metal surface. I'd take a photo of the actual application, but I don't have a camera with me.

Double stick tape comes to mind. Also, spray adhesive might do the job.

Thanks, but I think the plywood would have to sanded smooth in order for tape to stick. I'm not sanding anything and just using the sawed surface. I know the yellow glue will stick to the rough surface, but not sure if the foam will stick to the glue.

I think I would rather use gorilla glue for that.

3M makes a weatherstrip adhesive, somewhat like contact cement, probably what I would use. We used to call it Gorilla Snot....

Seriously though a bead or even dabs of silicon would likely work, yellow glue might, but could get absorbed into the foam.

I didn't think of gorilla glue and I have some of that already. If I remember correctly I think it expands which might be beneficial in bonding to the foam.

I just remembered years ago of trying to glue that yellow foam with something and the glue melted the foam. I guess I should do a small test piece first to make sure the gorilla glue doesn't melt it.

I've never tried to glue to foam before so I couldn't say if it would melt the foam or not. All I could think of is the foaming action of the glue would get a better bite on the insulation.

Sorry to be late to the party, but I found a glue that seems to bond anything to anything and is water proof. It's called e6000 and I found it at a craft store. A bit runny at first, but it cures to a really tough film. Wear surgical gloves to handle it as it is tough to get off of your skin.

I've gone out to find myself. If I return before I get back, have me wait for me.

Why re-invent the wheel? Use common contact cement. That is exactly what it's made for.

Won't get any easier than that.

we use e6000 in the shop quite often, very versatile. it does like to have 24 hours to cure tho.

I vote for Contact Cement...I have used it a lot,, and I think most people ignore it for more exotic glues. Contact Cement is very versatile.

I ended up using gorilla wood glue because my other gorilla glue was dried up and I couldnít find my e6000. I was in a hurry and had to do something so I just used what I could find. It seams to be working pretty well and held while riding on the back of an open trailer in 108įF for 7 hrs so Iím happy.
