Ambient temperature was 62-64 degrees....dap contact cement which by the smell alone I'd guess was solvent based. The odd part to me is that most of it adhered fine....
Temperature should be above 65 degrees. The back of the laminate only needs one good application...it's not that porous. The MDF should take two. Allow the first to dry, and apply the second. The surfaces have about an hour of open time, and can feel slightly tacky to dry before laminating.

If you used waterbase, check the directions for ambient temperature application, and it takes a lot longer for it to flash off dry.

With either, stir the can well before using.
