I agree, just use silicone caulk.

Oh, so funny. In fact I went to the Sorbothane website before even posting this note, and I can't find Lord 7650 or 7542A/B in a small enough quantity for the limited use I have. On the flip side, flexible super glues don't come in a large enough size for what I need, to make them cost effective. That leaves neoprene glues; since the website made no brand receommendation for those I looked around and what most often came up seemed to be glues for neoprene wetsuits. Since I wasn't sure if that was the right stuff I thought that maybe someone out here has already tried something else successfully. But I guess that's asking too much.

You can get the 3M spray glue at most art supplies and home improvement stores in the paint department. You could always use old fashioned solvent based contact cement in the red can.

Not water based, but I bet what we used to call "Black Death" ,3M weather strip adhesive, would bond to sorbothane. You want something that does not get brittle.

For the woodworkers out there, Gorilla glue uses moisture as the catalyst, not the air.

tvrgeek,
I said that earlier about the moisture in the air being the reactive component with the Gorilla glue. It isn't a catalyst per say, the reaction is between the Isocyanate component and water. This reaction becomes part of the urethane chain and at the same time is what makes it create the foamy look if you leave it exposed to the air. Water in the reaction causes CO2 to form in the reaction, we used this in foam formulations after CFC's were banned for the production of flexible foam materials.

I called Sorbothane. Had a very educational discussion about bonding materials with different energy constants. It turns out for my application I'd need either a bonding tape with different bonding strengths on each side (which is available for this kind of Sorbothane bonding), or no bonding adhesive at all. The technician recommended I try it with no bonding first.
