Repairing vinyl floor

I have a small cut in the surface of our floor. It is the Beauflor that is used in many of the later model Airstreams.

There cut is pretty small going part way into the core of the vinyl and with a little flap of the finished surface. I just need to glue this back down and not sure of an appropriate adhesive that will not be visible when dry and will do the job.

I did not have much luck with contacting the company direct. They do make a proprietary seam adhesive but is only in gallon containers.

Anyone have any luck with some easily available adhesive?

Thanks!

There are materials made for seam sealing vinyl floors. Try a flooring center or nib box store and see if they carry it.

Note: the seam sealants have different amounts of shine. Try it in an inconspicuous area first to see if it looks like a good match.

Thanks for the suggestions. So far I'm not finding any at the flooring places or big box stores around Bozeman. It seems like no one is doing any vinyl nowadays.

You could try plastic model cement applied with a toothpick to the back of the flap in tiny amounts...

Yeah, everyone is using cheap laminate nowadays. I'm doing porcelain tile or real hardwood in the house. Covering AS floor in rugs to protect it....
