Rubber Cement

Rubber cement is an adhesive made from elastic polymers (typically latex) mixed in a solvent such as acetone, hexane, heptane or toluene to keep them fluid enough to be used.

This makes it part of the class of drying adhesives: as the solvents quickly evaporate, the "rubber" portion remains behind, forming a strong, yet flexible bond. Often a small percentage of alcohol is added to the mix. Alcohol does not pose a problem, but acetone—a solvent widely used in nail polish removers—does irreparable damage on polished surfaces and many plastics.
