Hey everyone

I have been working on a office room divider and on one of the sides I want to add a cork-board surface (12”x12” tiles) but I am not sure how to stick them permanently should I use

A. Contact spray adhesive
B. Regular wood glue like Titebond II
C. Other method

Project picture

I will be adding the cork-tiles to this panel

Contact cement, spray on or brush, follow instructions carefully. Use caution when placing the panels. The slightest touch between the two surfaces and that is where the piece will stay.

I’d use 3M “super 77” spray. Just follow directions.

I think any good contact adhesive should work fine. I recently put some cork tile together making a stack that is 1” thick. I used some adhesive I had left from a Formica job. LesB is correct. Where it lands it stays

Cork can suck up a good portion of the first coating of contact cement. You may want to add a second after the first one feels dry to the touch.

Thanks everyone that chimed in with some advice I think I’m going to use 3M 90 extra gold spray contact adhesive

I just used spray adhesive to attach cork rolls, and it worked fine. I used 3M High Strength 90 in the green can.

Glad to hear that I think that’s what I will use .. someone else recommended 3M 77 what’s the difference ??

Strength. Higher number = higher bond strength.
