Epoxy is a sure fire glue although it can be quite messy.
Second one that work as well is super glue.
I haven't tried to use it to glue the mylar yet but I did use it to build the frames for the diagphrams for my ESL's.

Rubber glue or the yellow contact cement is what I have found to be the best glue for gluing Mylar.

Forget the 3m,77......DAP Weldwood contact cement....It a rubbery type.....clen good with assatone.....put this on both side let dry for 15-20 min....put the two togather...

ps It wont come apart......here at WM $7US more than a nuf for 50 speakers...
i have used to hold wire to the mylar on Magnepans....work best !.
an the price is right.

The 3m spray doesn't hold tension very well and is more messier than epoxy.
It is very hard to get a consistent thickness when spraying out of the can and it gets all over everything.

Polyurethane glues foam up as it is curing also they don't seem to bond well with some plastics although I have never tried it on mylar yet.

I have read good results from others with a brush on contact cement as well and I may try it sometime but right now I generally use epoxy.
