Mask Foam Glue/Adhesive

So the foam in my Pro Axis is finally starting to peel from the mask itself. What is the best solution to re attach the foam? I have an E-Flex but I love my Pro Axis and it would serve as a great loaner/backup goggle and thus I am not quite ready to retire it.

I like crazy glue, the only thing is it tend to dry and crack overtime.

I dont believe so, ive used super glue on mine before too and it has worked. But contact cement is used on upholstery foam, and headliners on cars, and it doesnt dissolve that foam. If worried I try a small section of it first to see its reaction.

I used rubber cement to re-attach the foam on my proto switch fs. Coat both parts, wait for it to get tacky, and press together. No problems.

EDIT: Let me add one great thing about using rubber cement. It comes off. If you ever need to replace the foam, the residue can be easily removed. Some of the other glues, the residue is on there forever and will interfere with subsequent gluing.

E-6000 or Goop. I prefer E-6000 since it has thickening agents in it.

It's a pretty amazing glue. My friends and I fly R/C slope combat (Zagis, Bees, Wing Warrior Raiders) and use E-6000 for gluing servos in, etc. guys have lost planes down the slope for year- and the E-6000 is still flexible when the plane was recovered four years later. It laid out in the sun for all that time.

Test it on a scrap of the foam before you commit, as it has some strong solvents in it. It'll eat styrofoam like nobodies business.

I've made live hinges on composite planes with it, and the hinge is still good six or seven years later, and it's a tiny 1/32" bead.

I've used black ABS cement for sprinkler piping. It's worked great and is not affected by moisture.

I used Marine Goop for my Flex foam and it worked great. Just a little bit went a long way.
