Easiest way is to log on to 3M - will give lots of options.

Or Self-Adhesive Solutions (SAS are also on eBay now, but for technical info, speak to Louise).

Various options then. There are glue gun options, solvent based adhesives and contact adhesives that will all work but might need some experimenting to get the right quantity and application time etc.

Probably the easiest and most readily available is just bog standard superglue.
