laminate countertop miter glue ?

I am about to get the two pieces of countertop together and the instructions on the miter bolt kit says to put glue on the joint then bolt. They provide a packet of dry glue you mix up. I have not seen any reference to gluing the miter joint but have seen references to silicone adhesive .

Should I use the glue or go with the silicone adhesive? If Silicone any particular type/brand?

We always siliconed, Put tape on both tops right at the edge, so the squeeze out goes on the tape.
