Re-glue Formica?


I've recently completed a couple of small cabinets with Formica tops for my daughter. I was at her house this morning and noticed that a couple of inches of the edging at one rear corner of the top has apparently somehow been pulled loose -- maybe snagged by the kids somehow(?) It's not very obvious as it's still tight against the edge. How can I repair this to prevent any further damage? Can I just insert a bit of rubber cement to reglue it?

if they are the pre-cut ends that go along with a purchased counter top, and were originally installed with a iron, you may be able to re-heat them to re-attach.
If not, try a hot glue gun

Not the pre-cut ends. These were cut to fit the edges of the top.

Preglue or not, it may still work with the HPL glue, if not the hot glue should work as suggested.
