GLue/ Adhesive that works with vinyl + soft foam?

I am trying to stick vinyl to soft foam (pillow foam or the very bendable type one). But i am not sure which type of adhesive that can be use. Since if i use wood glue won't it lose its flexibility and could also have wrinkles?

While spray adhesive might not work too strong on frabic like vinyl since the surface is way too smooth ?

anyone could help me out here ? (also provide location of purchase) any advice is very appreciated, thank you.

generally speaking anything you want to adhere, you want to ruff up the adhesion area. This creates microscopic undercuts that allow a mechanical bond. If you have such a bond, it doesn't matter how completely nonstick a surface may be, it still adheres.

For foam, the best adhesive you can get is this 3M FoamFast 74 adhesive

though it's not cheap and a bit hard to obtain....

Oh wait, you mean vinyl fabric. You really gotta be specific with those sort of things. lots of different types of products are made from vinyl. What exactly are you trying to do? I suspect hotglue would be your easiest bet. But you'd probably still wanna consider poking small holes in your fabric to alllow the glue to seep through.

Silicon based glue or silicon caulk is what I use, if you want to glue to the front “shinny” surface you actually need to sand it a bit with 1000 grit paper to give it more of a tooth.

PVC vinyl trying to glue polythelene (i think?) foam on them. I am thinking to buy one of those 3m 80 for it but not sure if it is even needed. I tried to use few type of glue, it either rip off the foam or it just won't stick on vinyl.
