Mounting Chooch Enterprises Flexible Limestone Walls

  I have some sections of Chooch Flexible Limestone Wall No. 8604 that I would to install.  My thoughts are to adhere the flexible Limestone walls sections to pink foam board  to create a rock wall cut.
  I have contacted Chooch Enterprises before the Walthers bought the company about methods of fastening the wall sections to pink foam board.  They suggested a hot glue gun.  I tried that method and the rock wall section just pulled away from the pink foam board.  Has anyone use this product and what were Your methods of attachment (adhering) to pink Foam board?

  I would greatly appreciate any and all information or methods.

Thank You

Quick Grab?  Never tried foam. They make super glue that is made for foam.

 Hot Glue melts pink foam,(ask me how I know).
Try an acrylic bonding product that is used to seal joints in timber.
Here in OZ its called no more gaps and works well.
I use it for bonding foam to foam and my track to the cork sub-roadbed.

My hot glue gun has 2 temperature settings. I’ve used the lower temperature setting successfully to glue foam pieces together.

I’ve also used my finger to smooth it out, but I don’t recommend that.  :facepalm: 🤕

I've got some low temperature hot glue, but for foam, I use, as recommended by DKS, Loctite PowerGrab.  That and some T-pins to hold the flexible wall sections in place until the adhesive sets up, and you should be good to go.

Hope this helps,
