That's the first one I tested yesterday on a scrap piece of flooring a a small piece of edging. After 1 hour, wasn't impressed but I'm waiting 12 hours for a "full cure". I have my doubts on this one though.Can't say for sure, so best to test this out first on spare stock, but the X-15 adhesive used for seaming flexible PVC shower pan liner might do the trick. https://www.homedepot.com/p/X-15-16-oz-PVC-Bonding-Adhesive-308122/100344046
Understood X-15 PVC liner cement is not the same as PVC pipe cement, two totally different things. I had some X-15 PVC Liner cement and tested yesterday on new vinyl plank floor piece. After one hour it seemed loose still and was supposed to have set. Being in no hurry, I let it sit all night. Later yesterday I took another piece of scrap plank floor but this one I sanded the pre-finish off to give the cement more bite. I glued another piece of edging and let it sit overnight also.BTW, the X-15 formula is different from the glue used for hard PVC / ABS pipe fittings, which does not work on flexible PVC liner. That said, contact cement is a good choice. Another adhesive that might work well is double sided carpet tape. That stuff is tenacious. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Roberts...le-Sided-Carpet-Tape-Roll-50-605-12/204470902
So my Weldwood Gel Contact Cement came today. Instructions state 7 days before full cure. The X-15 liner cement cured in 24 hours.You might look at Weldwood Gel Contact Cement

I want to do a measured pull test on both X-15 liner cement and Weldwood contact cement. Do I really need to wait a week to pull test the contact cement?
