    Bit expensive but it works and doesn't eat the tiles.

    It might be but I had visions of my tiles melting away like the wicked witch of the east.

    They are all still up after months so it does the job.

    If you were closer I'd lend you mine, I must only have used about one percent of the can.

    What does the manufacturer or supplier recommend? Spray contact adhesives are the normal thing to use and won't dissolve most soft foams. Do a test piece if in doubt.

    yup, and in general, pva 'should' work fine as well. but it does take a while to dry so i would use a spray adhesive.. note thou that when removing, spray glue is inclined to leave itself on the wall

    ive used spray carpet glue for lots of things and not had any issues. it is designed to stick foam back carpets for instance. works great inside speakers too hell, it even sticks carpet tiles
