Granite is a granular material that is phaneritic in texture. It’s tough, strong and grainy, qualities that make bonding granite incredibly troublesome. Granite rocks contain amphibole, quartz, mica and feldspar minerals. These minerals form an interlocking bond and consist of light and dark peppered minerals. This, along with other defining properties, makes bonding granite difficult and challenging. The best way to do so is to use a construction adhesive that specialises in bonding heavy duty materials such as stone, brick, concrete, marble and granite.
Bonding with Power Grab ‘n’ Bond
Power Grab ‘n’ Bond from C-TEC creates indestructible bonds between a huge range of materials and one of those happen to be granite. The same company that created Power Grab ‘n’ bond also created CT1, the ultimate sealant and adhesive in construction applications. Ever since then, people have looked to C-TEC for the next biggest thing to enter the market. That wait was finally over when they came up with Power Grab ‘n’ Bond, the best and strongest adhesive for construction applications and heavy duty bonds.
Old and dated granite adhesives largely contain two components that have to be well mixed to form a formidable bond. This takes a lot of time and effort to get right. If you use the wrong ratio to create your finished adhesive, the bond simply will not last. In addition to all this, granite adhesives are extremely slow to cure. In some cases, it can take up to a week for full adhesion. The bond tends to lack flexibility and often weakens over time.
Bonding granite to granite or granite to other surfaces requires a heavy-duty bonding formula such as C-TEC’s Power Grab ‘n’ Bond. This revolutionary product is ideal in heavy duty vertical bonding. Its composition is based on the unique formula used in CT1’s construction adhesive formulation.
Advantages of Using Power Grab ‘n’ Bond to Stick Granite
Power Grab ‘b’ Bond creates a ultra-strong initial grab that offers rapid curing. This means that you no longer have to wait hours or even days for the granite bond to adhere successfully. Reduce labour time by a massive 50% when you use Power Grab ‘n’ Bond for all of your bonding needs. Originally, this strong adhesive was created for façade applications. It takes away the need for additional supports to aid the bonding process and no longer requires that you drill extra fastenings to granite in order to ensure a stable and durable bond.
Before bonding Power Grab n Bond, you can use Multisolve to clean and remove unwanted debris and adhesives which may be present and that could compromise the initial grab power of the granite adhesive.
