The laminated edging on my kitchen and bathroom countertops is coming loose. I'm afraid the kids are going to break it, so please tell me the best and easiest way to repair it.
The following excerpt appears on the GOOP page in the index. Please go there if you would like to get the skinny on GOOP adhesive.
If you have edging strips that have released, the Goop is a great substitute for contact cement. It adheres to the old contact cement without any complaints, and is more forgiving... if you slightly misalign the laminate, you can make corrections. If you have worked with contact cement, you know that once contact is made, it's a done deal! Simply apply the Goop to either surface. Do not over apply or put it too close to the edges, to minimize squeezeout.
Press the laminate into place, then pull it back off for a few seconds (watch out for the adhesive 'strings' that form). This allows the Goop to begin to dry, increasing its tackiness. Press back together and apply masking or low-tack painter's tape at 6 inch intervals to hold laminate in place as the Goop dries. Because Goop air dries, drying is slow between two nonporous surfaces, so full strength may not be achieved for days. However, enough holding strength is reached in 24 hours for tape removal, if done carefully.
