Default Stronger rubber cement?

Is there something stronger than the usual rubber cement in
the patch kits? Ideally something that won't dry out so fast
or where multiple cheap small tubes are available.

The reason is that I sometimes have larger holes from side
wall blow-outs. Not inch-long gashes but one or two tenths
of an inch long. The tubes I use are super thick and,
therefore, expensive. $15-20 each and that's not something
to be thrown out lightly. Instead of the li'l REMA patches I
need to use thicker rubber from an older sacrified tube but
this has to be vulcanized/cemented really well.

See an auto parts house for Tech rubber cement in the steel
can. You might want their buffer solution too - very
effective for cleaning before your patch.
