    I have a light blue iPad Air Smart Cover. The cover has come away from the magnetic strip - completely and cleanly. I think it's made of polyurethane but I'm not 100% sure and as I research glues I see warnings like "UHU All Purpose Adhesive - not suitable for PE" (which I believe stands for polyurethane) or other glues that list all sorts of materials but not polyurethane.

    Does anyone know what glue I can definitely use?

    If you want to be technical, the only way of knowing that would be to select a brand of glue that you want and you're going to have to research the manufacturer data sheets. Most list the ingredients or major compositions on the bottle. Otherwise, contact the manufacturer directly and have them research it for you.

    As far is the most durable and one of the most widely used available adhesives on the market, I would suggest a Gorilla glue.

    Also, whatever glue you use, you want to make sure it's non-caustic, so it doesn't have a chemical reaction where the material heats up and potentially could damage the product.

    I would try some kind of so called " super glue",usually works with all materials,and you only need a few drops of it.
