Default What adhesive to use for Sorbothane?

I'm building a multi-layer platform for my TT - 2" HDF (yes, not MDF) followed by a 3/16" layer of Duro 30 Sorbothane, followed by a 3/8" sheet of granite. The HDF is smooth finished, but the granite has one smooth side and one side that would require a fill type adhesive.

I'd like to know what non water-evaporative adhesive I can use on Sorbothane. In the HDF layer I was wondering if I could use something like 3M Spray 80. In the granite layer I'm not sure what I could use. Both interfaces would require high bonding strength due to the nature of the weight involved.

Hmm, I hadn't thought of tape. I thought tape would have a higher possibility of failing (peeling away under the weight of these materials). After I posted this I spoke to a support person at the place where I bought the Sorbothane. He said that for the Sorbothane to HDF interface, 3M Spray 80 shoukd work well, and that for the granite layer I should use Gorilla Glue (!) as I would probably need some gap filling there.

467/468/200 are insanely strong adhesives- the only issue is that once you touch surfaces, there's no chance to re-position.

Tony,
The Gorilla glue is a single component urethane adhesive. It dries by a reaction with the moisture in air. There are many urethane adhesives that would do the job on a porous surface such a granite. A two component urethane is 3M 3532 You would also be able to use many epoxy adhesives. 3M 2216 is a high strength epoxy. A spray adhesive could work but would have no gap filling properties and have less surface bonding strength but you probably wouldn't have a problem with either approach as you will have a fairly large surface contact area either way.

Why not use ones that Sorbothane manufacturers recommend?
