Adhesive used for plastic molding?

Does anyone know what adhesive Escape uses to attach the plastic molding to the wood paneling (plastic trim edge used on the vertical wall between the oven and the bed-19/dinette-21)? The dried adhesive appears to be clear in nature and feels like a silicone, but am not sure. I bought an extra strip of trim for a mod and would like to use the same adhesive since it's proven.

Thank you,
Michael

I doubt it's silicone. Probably ProFlex, but the easiest way to confirm that is to call Escape if you really need to know. I don't think they use silicone anywhere.

Michael I have used contact cement to attach the trim to the front of shelves I have made and it works well.

I was wondering if it was proflex and wanted to ask the community before bugging Escape.

Clear Gorilla Glue

They've released a new clear non-foaming glue that the radio hosts of DIY house repair rave about. I've used it on a broken glass flower vase and worked great:
