Could this title be any more confusing?
Hey guys,
I recently bought a perfect 2nd hand L-358 with only one problem: The rubber part on the left part lost it's adhesive strength and fell. I tried gluing it using a random quick glue I had laying around my house, but it failed to attach.
I was wondering if anybody knows which kind of glue will be the proper match for it? The rubber part is.. I believe, well, rubbery, and the unit itself seems to be made of Plastic. I emailed Sekonic, but they did not respond.
Photos are attached for easier understanding.

Thank you guys!

Contact cement (external link) works well.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

E6000 is amazing.

I actually completely nerded out one day and really looked into what was a great, strong as hell glue. E6000 was the answer. I have glued plastic to metal, metal to metal, and fabric to metal. As long as you let it cure for a day it will bond just about anything.

If I had to marry a glue, it would be E6000.

I would examine the seam that joins the halves of the meter shell... If separation of the two, for repair purposes, might ever be needed, my choise of adhesives for the rubber would not be to choose something that i do not feel could be readily 'unstuck' to permit the repair to occur. Contact cement is far too tacky, I would reserve that for never-ever-separate-it (without high heat)

Barge brand cement is something that is fairly strong in adhering things, yet it stays flexible and separable...I have stuck suede onto the soles of rubber-soled shoes used for dancing, they have stuck for years, but then I can peel the worn suede layer off readily, so I can glue on a new layer of suede.

You need something with some flexibility perhaps more than strength. Personally I'd suggest using a clear silicon based material. Often caulking is labeled as "adhesive sealant".

Having to repair commercial aircraft interiors on the fly (pun intended) we use 2 part epoxy with a 5 minute cure time, or sometimes carpet tape, it's two sided and will stick to anything. Good luck. Make sure both sides are clean before applying glue or tape. Isopropyl alcohol can work in a pinch

Ouch.

Although probably better than if I were "stuck" with my ex wife.

Wow, thank you!
I definitely didn't expect so many detailed replies.
I really really appreciate it :) I will now choose a proper adhesive based on your advice. Wish me luck.
