Default Glue for helmet pads?

I have spoken to the old distributor for Giro and they said to use hobby
glue or water based glue such as PVA clean the foam and apply glue, wait
till glue is almost dry 10-15 mins then apply wait 24 hours for it to dry.

Anyone know what glue I should use to restick my hemet pads? I know a
lot of glues will melt/disolve the foam. Cheer Steve

All the helmets I know are based on polystyrene foam. Solvent based
adhesives (e.g. contact adhesives) dissolve the stuff nicely. Epoxies are
safe on polystyrene - I have used them with complete success. Test a small,
unimportant part first in case your helmet is made of something else. Water
based glues (e.g. PVA) will not stand up to the rain and sweat.
Cyanoacrylates ("super glue") will work for a while, but break down in time
from exposure to water.
