It works fine. There are 3 different formulas, with 201 being the most common, which is a foam to foam contact adhesive. It is not a high heat resistant glue, so it will fail in high temperatures in a car interior on anything other than gluing foam to foam.

It is not a substitute for DAP or 3-M top and trim adhesive, but it has a lot of uses. It is great for gluing fabric, leather, Ultraleather and vinyl to sew foam.

Check out the Wiki article on contact adhesive: CONTACT ADHESIVE

I started out doing my interior under the mistaken impression K-grip and DAP were sort of an either/or thing. Fortunately I quickly learned, as Dan points out, that the K-grip has only limited use and will not stand up for general use (gluing foam to backer boards or gluing fabric to foam) where high heats may be involved - like cooking your interior on a hot summer day with the windows all rolled up.

From my VERY limited experience, I used much more of the DAP landeau and interior adhesive than I did K-Grip and probably could have done the project without the K-grip at all. The reverse, however, is not true. I could not have done the project without the DAP

One thing to note, the K-grip seems to tack up much more quickly than the DAP. So if you need something glued up on an immediate basis (that's not subject to high heat), the K-grip seemed to be the better option.

That is absolutely right,........ you could do the whole interior with just DAP or 3-M top and trim adhesive, but it can't be done the other way around using just K-Grip or Kwik Spray.

I use it as much as possible because of the fumes from the DAP.
