We have made a aluminum box to fit inside a Van and want to cover it
in that white sheet plastic foam. I think the two materials are some
what smooth or greasy to the touch. Is there a good recommendation on
attaching the two materials together.
I assume you are talking about Styrofoam. The high density foams
have a better R factor, they are either pink or blue, polyiso is
even better. There is a special version of liquid nails made for
foam. I have also had good results with 3M spray adhesive.
Keep the whole world singing . . . .

Smooth and greasy might be polyethylene foam, so you may not have much
luck with adhesives. Best approach may be to round up a variety of
materials and simply try out small samples of each. There many
sealants and adhesives in the building materials at your local borg,
so give it a try and good luck.
Need to know what type of plastic. Polyethylene does not stick to anything.
Polystyrene will dissolve with some solvent based adhesives. Consider
mechanical fasteners like a big washer and a bolt through the aluminum.
