Hello pheli1!


The surface and surrounding edge of your table is bonded with contact adhesive ... the same glue used to hold down laminate counter tops.


Contact adhesives are applied to both surfaces (wood table and plastic covering) and the surfaces are kept apart for about 10-minutes.


During this waiting period, the solvent in the adhesive will begin to evaporate and both surfaces will become very sticky.


Beginning on the side or edge which is still bonded and working toward the loose side or edge, use your hand to smooth the hard plastic coating back onto the wood.


As the two sides touch, they will bond firmly and immediately.


Typically the bond is so strong that the pieces CAN NOT be repositioned.


So, make certain to periodically check alignment as you proceed.


Once done, allow the adhesive to cure for 24-hours before returning the table to service.



Your Paint Associate can show you a small container of contact adhesive that also has a brush built into the lid.
