Best adhesive for surfboard pad?

Postby SpaceRacer » Sun Sep 01, 2019 6:27 pm

Was thinking of putting down a pad on a fiberglass board with Gorilla Glue. Would that be ok or is there something better?

EVA pads come with selfsticking stick. EVA is chronic pain to glue. Gorila will probably work /make small test/ . Im using shoe neoprene glue recently and as silly as it sounds epoxy will work.

I should have mentioned that I am re-gluing a part of a pad that is coming up off of an older board. I like the idea of shoe goo because it is thick and gooey. Gorilla is like water and usually seeps out of projects like this. It was all I had and was feeling lazy. Goo might be better! Thanks

Weld wood contact cement

Or 3m 90 spray on contact adhesive

+1 for contact cement. To restick a pad that is peeling Weldwood is easier than the spray.

3m 90 spray on contact adhesive - will not hold longtime - tried.

Second that. A 2K contact cement (neoprene) would surely hold longer if not forever.

My pads have held for 8 months so far. I always used weldwood contact cement before.

I'll see how they do long term
