Attaching Cork Tile to Acrylic

Hey,

You guys think I should use silicon or epoxy to attach tiles of natural cork bark to the inside of the acrylic tank I'm using? The tiles will be 90% above water, but there will be a portion of it that stays wet.

Thanks,
Ryan

Silicone usually does not bond to acrylic... I have had decent success with a hot glue gun for light duty applications....Weldon ( and I forget the number) makes a good acrylic cement for heavier applications...

I'm going to be using weldon number 16 to cement acrylic baffles to the tank, but I didn't think it would work attaching anything other then plastics. Have you ever used the weldon for cementing cork bark to acrylic?
