Adhesive for EVA foam

Hello All, I am writing here to have some valuable opinion from you experts to know about the adhesives that can be used for the bonding of EVA foam with EVA foam. Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) foam is a closed cell foam; which is being manufactured through compression molding. Sheets are obtained in different sizes then these sheets are further join to make a roll foam. My requirements regarding joint are: 1. The joint should be invisible. 2. The joint should be of high strength. 3. There should be water and chemicals resistance in the joint. Please be informed, after continuous experimentation I have reached to the conclusion that a Vinyl Acetate Ethylene (VAE) co polymer emulsion can work best for this application. The joint obtained was invisible, water and chemical resistant. The only issue with this joint is that it is of low strength and take a lot of time (almost 24 hours) to get cure. Please suggest some of the product that can work best for this application.
