door gasket adhesive

Can anyone recommend a good adhesive for gaskets to aluminum? I have some gaskets either off or on their way to off mostly on the outer hatch doors, battery, and access to the water heater etc.

As always...

May the force be with you!

Yes, 3M works well. But you can get it at most if not all auto parts/supply store. Get the black in color not the orange.

Use 3M Super weatherstrip adhesive "ONLY," which is black.

It has far more holding power than the yellow adhesives.

It also costs more, justified by the superior performance.

We sill over 1000 tubes of it yearly.
