What kind of adhesive is used to secure an undermount kitchen sink to the underside of a countertop?

I have an undermount stainless steel kitchen sink suspended underneath a Corian countertop. While a normal kitchen sink rests on the surface of a kitchen countertop, an undermounted sink is suspended from below, attached to the countertop using a special high-strength adhesive.
Today, when I came home from work, I found that one of the sink basins dropped; something happened with the adhesive, and the basin came loose and fell from underneath the countertop. This isn't supposed to happen, but considering the seemingly weekly loads of fail my moneypit of a house have been giving me the past year, I'm not surprised.
There's a special type of adhesive that is used to mount stainless sinks underneath Corian countertops. However, a half hour of searching through Google found nothing more than the fact that ... well, a special kind of adhesive is used. What kind of adhesive, though ... no such luck. Anyone handier than me any ideas?
