What Type of Glue for Headliner?

I am replacing the headliner in my sailboat. I was thinking of using a laminate rather than vinyl/nagahide. The original was nagahide glued to 1/4in teak plywood. What type of glue would be best to glue laminate to teak plywood for my headliner?thanks.

The old tried and true contact cement still is a good product for this. I like the new gel type best. Just make sure you have plenty of ventilation wherever you are using it.

Good luck

Second contact cement. In the 60s, when laminate was the hot thing for countertops, the cabinet shop I worked in would only use contact. Be sure to give it indicated cure time prior to joining and roll it down with an attituce.

OK in this case. But otherwise (I believe) laminate NOT = formica. Korrekt?

Then I third the contact cement...just be sure to have a very good respirator..even in an open boat this is nasty stuff...also be prepared to brace it and hold it to shape with some flexible bracing if it has a curve to it for 24 hours anyway.

Look into DAP® WELDWOOD ® High Solids Contact Adhesive for Landau Top & Trim.

Does this gluing need to be done on the boat with the panels in place ? If so, and the preference is contact cement, I'd recommend water based contact cement. No dangerous fumes. What I used was made by 3M, and I got it from a NAPA store, but this was 12 years ago. I see it online now.

It is more expensive, but I found it to have more coverage.

no. fortunately, i can glue everything together in my garage and then install it. so, no worries about small enclosed spaces and ventillation. thank you for your responses. oh, it was 1/16' teak plywood not 1/4". found some pretty cheap at don's salvage!

Is there going to be anything buried under the liners, like wiring? You may want to use industrial velcro in those places. It works very well, but you do need a heavy rubber mallet to get maximum engagement of the hooks.
