Alternative tube patch cements

Are there any other types of cements that will work other than the usual patch-kit rubber cement? (usually it's Rax or that German brand )

Weldwood contact cement? Duco Cement?

Napa has Valvoline Red Synthetic for only 2.99. Coastal Marine was 3.99 or 4.99. Tempted to try these instead of Mobil One, which I have used before, and I do like it.
