Perhaps PL 400? Have used it to glue bricks together outside with no problems.

How were the door surfaces prepared for application of the adhesive and laminate? Was all previous finishes and any contaminates such as wax or furniture polish removed completely, leaving bare wood or metal surfaces for application of the adhesive and laminate?

The laminate was applied over bare wood I belt sanded the finish off it.

Maybe FastCap Speed Tape?

I dunno. Edgebanding applied with the stuff
is said to hold up.

I don’t see how heating adhesive and sticking
it down again is going to last. I think you’ll
need to at least put some new adhesive of
some type at the edges where it’s pealing up.

The best contact cement I have used is Barge.
It isn’t generally suited to woodworking but
I could see it working as a spot repair adhesive.
It sticks like crazy.

Just get a good layer of tightbond wood glue under the laminate, and clamp it down, and it will hold.

Could it be you didn’t sand enough or rough it up enough and need to get under the laminate and really rough up the wood under neath for a new bite for the new glue your needing to add..

I guess the question is does the laminate and glue separate from the rest of the door with glue.. Is it separation of the two glues,separation from door or laminate?

There was a reason I asked if it was black melamine. If its plywood it only be raw and it will stick.
