Engine Room Hatch Insulation Adhesive

Paul Stascavage

Good day all.

I am currently in the process of replacing the steel backing plates for the gas strut brackets.

It is time to reassemble everything, and I am looking for a recommendation on what type of adhesive I should use to re-glue the insulation to the rubber liner on the underside of the hatch.  It appears that Amel originally used a very tacky ‘tar like’ substance during the original install.  It also appears that the previous owner used contact cement to re-glue some areas that were failing over the years.

I was planning to use contact cement, but I’m not sure if this is the best choice for this application.  
I would welcome ideas/thoughts from others who have some experience with this.

All the best,
