Me too. I've got a loose dustcap on the Kef midwoofer of a pair of older Meridian actives. So I'm rather interested in the outcome of this thread as well. As I need very little, perhaps we could share a tube. I'm in nearby Dundas...

Happy Trails!

Hey Don,

Is the stuff intended as an adhesive for loudspeaker cones and soft parts?

It sure is. Does nice repairs to all kinds of cone materials and surrounds. I've used it many times with great success to perform complete re-foam jobs, securing dust caps, etc. Many years ago, this is what Global recommended when I purchased 10 and 12 inch foam surrounds.

It's pretty easy to work with. Starts to set up within the hour, workable for an additional hour and good to go after 12 hours (over night). It also dries clear, so there is no visible glue residue after it dries. Also great to use for re-attaching grill cloth that comes away from the the back edge of the frame. It also has a long shelf life if stored properly. A whole bottle will do roughly 4-5 10 inch drivers.

I have some on hand (open bottle) if you want to try it. I have a full bottle as well so no need to return it. I live near 403 and Erin Mills in Mississauga. PM me if you or rtate are interested.

Surrounds and center dust caps can be glued on with the Lepage's GREEN (zero outgassing) labeled contact cement, with no worries. 10-15 years later it's still flexible and surrounds aren't breaking down--or separating from cones.
