Default Suitable adhesive for Mylar film

I am looking for a suitable adhesive to attach Mylar film to the panels of my Quad ESL63s. I have seen Scotch Grip 4693 recommended but can not find it in the UK can anyone recommend an alternative or would anyone like to ship me a tube from the USA

MT Audio supply 'U-Fix' which is a 'polyurethane/acetone' mix and works. A sniff reminds one of UHU so perhaps that's a clue?

BTW where did you source Mylar from?

I got the Mylar and coating and adhesive from MT Audio but I also have to stick the stators back on and I am not sure I have enough adhesive

I've used two part epoxy with great success. The good part about epoxy is it doesn't creep. But that's the only good part about it.
