Application For Rubber Edge Guard
U channel rubber edge trim extrusions can be used as a protective edge on sheet metal or rough parts. They also can be used as cosmetic trim and make economical seals. Handy on cars, trucks, trailers, motor homes, motorcycles, and much more.
If you are going to use glue to keep the rubber edge guard on I recommend regular contact cement. You cannot use the recommended procedure of putting the contact cement on both surfaces. I would suggest applying the contact cement on the leading edge of item you are putting the rubber edge guard on, let it sit for a few minutes to get tacky and then put it on and leave it awhile to set. It may not be the best application method but it will harden and be there to stay. Some rubber edge trim extrusions come with the glue already in it. I find it does not always work out too well as the glue is not designed to harden if the sun shines on it and gets a bit warm. The glue will soften and run out all over the place. I can't say all the soft glues behave this way but can say many do.
