Ice Box Glue


Would anyone knows what glue I can use to bond the ABS sheet to the rigid insulation board?

Can I use a foam spray?

Just about anything that will stick to ABS will work. Try some panels using cheap stuff (silicone) and if that doesn't stick, work your way up to the expensive stuff (polyurethane). Spray foam may work, especially if you have voids to fill, however it is very messy.

Gorilla Glue will stick to anything, but I'll bet 3M 77 spray contact glue will work as well.

It doesn't take any real stress. Any sticky stuff will do. I used spray on contact cement and 5200.
