I purchased the sheet already laminated in a sandwich construction.
It was so long ago ~30 years, that I can't possibly remember the source.
If you were to do the lamination your self, then I would suggest a solvent based psa adhesive (Ashland Chemical Co.), failing that, a water based psa woukd probably work based on the mfgrs recommendation.
I can not over emphasize the need for a PRESSURE SENSITIVE adhesive.
Foil is easily available on line.
Hope thia helps.
