Need Aluminum Adhesive

Hi all,

I am looking for an metal/aluminum adhesive to glue Prodex bubble wrap insulation to the inside of my interioir panels. The insulation is coated with aluminum foil so essentially it would be an aluminum to aluminum bond.

Any recommendations?

Thanks,

Georgie

I have used Weldwood Contact Cement to glue Reflectix to interior walls. I also tried spray adhesive, but like the Contact Cement better.

3M 90 spray adhesive. Best known is 3M 77 spray adhesive, but it does not stick as well nor is it as heat resistant as the 90. Here is a listing on Amazon: 3M 90-24 Spray Adhesive 17.6-Ounce - Amazon.com

The aluminum foil will work as a radiant barrier but not where it is in contact. I am not sure where and why you would want to glue it. I would just use foil tape at the ribs a let the be space between the skin and insulation. It will touch in areas. You can put it spacer or leave it. But why force it to be in contact with the skin. Sorry I know you were only asking about glue and not my opinion

In my experience, PL Adhesive worked very well. I glued strips of prodex to the panel, then glued a full prodex layer to the strips, forming air gaps. After a full winter and nearly a full summer, I cut an access panel and found that the adhesive was still bonded quite well. Details start at post 144 in this thread.

Reflectix, and I suspect Protex, work best with dead air spaces with the edges sealed to trap the air.
