### Less than what their use was is what their made from. For Ensolite and Neoprene, any fair quality "all-purpose" cement should do the trick well. I have also used a hot glue gun (melting a slightly-flexible plastic, remember) to good effect -- with the cozy(s) going hundreds of miles and looking fine. The inner tubes would probably do well with the all-purpose cement, perhaps less-so with the hot-glue gun, as the plastic "glue" is so much less flexible than the rubber, and hell, is not really a glue.
