Default glue for plastic laminate

Router table has a small area of plastic laminate lifting up near the router plate insert. I need to get a good glue that can be injected in a small area to try to glue the laminate back down. Contact cement won't work due to the small area.

Any ideas?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi SB

I use a two part Epoxy glue that can be injected in and under the laminate, you can get it from the auto parts store,, 30 sec.,1 min.5 min,etc.setup time..

I also use the super thick super glue with the spray that sets it in 10 sec. or less..the same stuff I use on wood joints when I don't want the glue to show and I don't want to wait for the glue to dry ..it's great stuff...

I was going to suggest epoxy as well. With super glue if you use a clamp be sure you don't glue the clamp down. The accelerator works well and quick. Bj, for this application don't you think thin CA would work better? Just wondering.

I don't want to steer Steve's post another way but on the subject of gluing joints..are you talking about box joints and stuff with thick CA glue? Box maker Rob Cosman uses nothing but thin CA on his boxes. He soaks it on the ends of the assembled joints on the box. I tried it on a tight fit joint and no leak thru but it requires a lot of sanding cause the glue still ghosts thru the finish. Do you put it on the joints prior to assembly and then fit the joint together?

Not to sure what CA is ?

I was going to suggest some 3M #77 spray glue because it's just a small gap to get into it, liitle masking tape on the edges and give it a shot in the crack then tape it down for a bit...

When I was building radio control boats I would use thin superglue (CA) on the wood joints first, then the thick stuff to fill the gaps.. The thin soaked into the wood before I spritzed it with the accelerator..

For the laminate, I think I would use an epoxy.. Spread it in with a thin stick and clamp it down..

CA, cyanoacrylic is the actual name for Super Glue or it's many other brand names.
