"Hypalon glue", which is usually a polychloroprene adhesive mixed with an isocyanate crosslinker, is not compatible with plastomer material. Elastomers only.
It'll hold for a short time, but the natural plasticizer migration of the plastomer material will turn the adhesive in to gummy residue in about a year with poor peel strength.
A 2 part PVC adhesive, polyurethane base with an isocyanate crosslinker should be used.
Removing all old adhesive before bonding is mandatory.
Pre wiping with MEK at least 3 times, 5 min between wipes, with a max 10 min before applying adhesive is mandatory.
