Coverings? Would help if you told us what they were made of. There are many types of glue for many types of product.

I doubt it. Watterlan. My expierence of laminate on kitchen doors is if they start peeling it is time for new ones. I would try evostick contact adhesive as tenperary repair but doubt it will last. John
PS.. peeling laminate is one reason I have always gone for solid wood doors. Cost more but last longer. ........John

When I googled it the advice I found basicly said that they generally are coated with a vinal and if it is peeling somewhere normally a corner best thing to do is stick it back with an contact adheasive coating both the vinal and the surface of the door. Peel back the vinal if you can (gently) apply contact adeasive to both door and vinal wait till adhesive is ready to stick and push togeather using clean kitchen towel or lint free cloth. Peeling vinal back enables you to streach the vinal a little taking out any folds or crinkles which may be prescent. That was my wording not as it was written...........

Copydex is a glue that works the best with fabrics like cotton duck. I have had less success with other materials.
