Is it safe to use this glue on EPO foam?

Hey guys, I jut got my HobbyKing Atom mini glider (EPO foam) Since it does not come with glue, I wonder if I can use the glue I have.

Here is the one that I have:
3M Plastic Emblem and Trim Adhesive

I wonder if I can use it safely. btw, I have another Cessna 182 which is made of EPS foam. Can I use this glue on that?

Thank you!

Test it on an area that you don't mind melting or you could get something designed for gluing foam.

You should read the back of the package and see what it says about using on foam.

The glue you would want to use is a CA glue, does not need to be foam safe as you plane is made of EPO foam.
