    Default Glue for attaching felt to fume board???

    What type of glue is good for attaching felt to the metal top of a fume board? I had some 3M Super77 spray adhesive but reading the fine print it said not to use on vinyl or automotive headliners...so I take it that it can't deal with the heat that we might encounter. What about an automotive high-temp silicone? Simple hot-glue?

    Thanks!

    Staples are commonly used.

    Staples would work well at attaching the felt BUT I had the frame built and metal nailed on before I found where folks were stretching the felt over the frame and stapling *before* nailing down the metal. Does the felt need to be in close contact with the metal or will it work ok if it's 1/4"-1/2" away from the metal? I think I'll go for the high-temp silicone...seems the simplest fix.

    Thanks,

    I'm really not familiar with using hot glue. I know the metal on the fume board won't get as hot as a hot glue gun but will it get hot enough to allow the glue bond to fail? Seems it wouldn't take much to hold up the light weight felt, but I don't won't to get into the bees and go "uh oh!".

    I'd be surprised if 3m-77 doesn't work on the felt. Sheet metal guys use it all the time for insulation.
    Spray both pieces, let it sit until tacky then put it on.
