What do you use to re-glue the foam on your mask?

I have a V-Force Profiler and the foam at the top is peeling off. Any recommended adhesives to keep it attached? It would be great if it could hold up to water when I rinse the mask off.

I called V Force, when mine did, they shipped me one to use and paid for shipping to have mine fixed. I don't know if they still do that or not, but it's worth a shot.

I've had good luck sticking stuff like plastics and foam to each other using good ol' contact cement. It's flexible but holds well and is water proof to a high degree.

Be sure the plastic is clean and oil free. A wipe with a paper towel dabbed with lacquer thinnner or acetone or brake cleaner works well. On the foam don't slather it on so it soaks deeply into the foam but put it on wet enough that it definetly wets into the pores and doesn't just sit on the surface.

Water based latex contact works nicely. If you use the solvent one you may need to thin it a little if it's too thick. Lacquer thinner or contact cement thinner works for that. It should be the thickness of heavy cream or a bit thinner to work nice for this function.

I have some advice...

One.. Use the glue called " The amazing goop " its a flexible vinal based glue. I use it on my masks aswell as my rentals at work it holds up very nice.

Two.. Take your profiler to an event that Draxxus has an booth at and see if they can help you. Be nice and you may even get them to swap it out for you. Event guys are genrally damn nice if your nice to them..

The the field I work at, we have to re-glue the foam in our rental masks every now and then. We use a neoprene glue for repairing wetsuits. It works quite well.
