Repairing stainless steel sink insulation

I had a significant piece of insulation material come off my stainless steel kitchen sink. See attached pictures. I am wondering if I can just glue it back on, and if so, what glue do you recommend. Any suggestion on how to get pressure on the patch while the glue is setting?

A good quality double sided foam tape will work. You could also use adhesive pads.

Contact cement is also a viable solution. I like Pliobond and also Weldwood contact cement.

You brush it on the sink and the piece that fell off. Allow the glue to just about dry. It should be dry to the touch. When you put the piece on the sink..... it's done. No need to hold it.

DAP Weldwood 3 fl. oz. Original Contact Cement-00107 - The Home Depot

Thanks. I had not thought of contact cement. Will it be OK with the range of temperatures that the sink encounters?

Absolutely. Contact cement is very tough.
