I have used several different brands of patch including Remas. For the last 4 years I have been using Elmer's rubber cement. Maybe have applied 20 patches with it. It does not seem to make a difference. They have all held.

I guess YYMV. It is good to consider John's warning, but I don't think it makes a difference.
