16xrb counter top issues

What's the best glue to fix this? Trim piece is separating from the counter top.

I didn't take a look at your picture, but generally speaking, any good quality contact cement made for laminate countertops should work. The cement I used (Elmers) required that you apply to both the wood and the laminate, wait a bit, and then apply. You'll want to clamp it down somehow while it sets.

Could not see your picture, but, typically they use a T molding edging. You can use a regular wood glue ( Titebond etc) and hammer it back in. .If it is a laminate then contact adhesive would be appropriate. If a laminate edge you can reactivate the contact adhesive with heat. Use a heat gun or a strong hair dryer. Heat the edge to about 210 degrees and the contact adhesive is reactivated, may only have to apply pressure to get it back in place. If you could post an actual picture rather than a link it would be helpful.

Good Luck.

Ok I was able to see the picture.. Wood glue and strapping tape should work well on that edge. Apply the glue, hold it in place with strapping tape, wipe off excess glue and you should be good to go after a few hours.

It looks like you may have a water intrusion problem.... At least, it appears that way from the picture, in that the corner by the wall is swelling. That may be why the laminate is separating.
