"While non-maritime products may work, my preference is 3M 4200. It's not as "permanent" as 3M 5200, but will be more than adequate for the job. Omar"

"Thanks for the replies! I found some kind of contact cement (I gave a thought to epoxy as well, but considered it would be too much nuisance if rubber needs to be replaced in some point) from Würth, we'll see how it goes. Have to move my…"

"I also used epoxy. Cleaned the rubber with solvent, used 40 grit on the sanding disc to really key the surface, then wrapped the rubber round a curved surface to open the cuts , then scrubbed the epoxy glue in with a brush for good full contact then…"

"I used epoxy for the sake of having nothing else available at the time. No issues so far. I think you can possibly over think this. Once the glue is set and the beam is in position and lashed down, it will also help hold the rubber in position. If…"

"Use epoxy: clean the rubber with acetone, then use 80 grit  sandpaper the surface to be glued  and then glue it with epoxy (maybe  thickened with cotton powder).  The building instructions describe it similarly."

"Just basic contact cement. There are many brands available, but generally speaking, contact cement is made for rubber and plastic and does the job well. Stick with a name brand - DAP, Scotch, 3M, Weldwood, LePage, etc."

rubber to beam blocks - what kind of glue?

Hi folks,My Tiki Itatae building process is nearing (hopefully happy) ending and now the question is what kind of glue/adhesive would be smart to use for gluing rubber on the beam blocks?I found 4mm rubber that I think would to the trick, but I have no glue which kind of glue to use for it. I searched the forum and found one solution to use Sika-two-hundred-or-something but with pre-heating the rubber with blow-torch... it seems kind of complicated... Maybe just scratch it with sandpaper and…See More
