Contact Cement would be the best thing to us for facing cabinets. Remember to apply the cement to the back of the laminate and wait until it dries tacky Before you stick the laminate to the cabinets. Message me with any questions or concerns.

Contact cement is typically applied to both surfaces for laminates. You only get once shot at lining things up so use dowels, wax paper and so forth to align things before bring the two cemented surfaces to each other.
