Default Best contact cement available in UK?

Looking for some guidance on which contact cement to use to secure paper backed veneer to MDF?

How about something like this one:

Buy Titebond Wood Veneer Glue - 946ml online at Rutlands.co.uk

I've also read a method where you apply Titebond 2 on both surfaces, allow to dry then use an iron (don't ask the wife first) to heat the surfaces and bond them together. Apparently it is quite effective but you'd need to practice for your own application.

I used this...

THIXOFIX-250 | Alpha Adhesives & Sealants Ltd 250 ml Can Beige Contact Adhesives Bonding Gel | RS Components

To stick some reasonably stiff Formica to some curved speaker cabinets and it worked really well. A couple of years later everything is still really well stuck down.

You don't get a spreader in the link above though.

Also scotch weld is good enough for aircraft trim, so would probably be fine for veneer.

Heavy duty spray carpet adhesive. Find out what thinners to use too. Otherwise the spray head gets partially clogs and "spits".

I've used Evo-Stik 528 for years. Evo-Stik 528 Industrial Contact Adhesive Transluscent Amber 2.5Ltr | High Strength Adhesives | Screwfix.com A finer toothed spreader is better for veneer, but the usual red one is fine for Formica.

I have found that creeps after a while. YMMV.
