Bonding stone requires an extra strong and powerful adhesive. C-TEC have several different adhesives including CT1, The Snag List Eliminator and Power Gran ‘n’ Bond, the ultimate construction adhesive for vertical heavy bonding applications. Traditional construction adhesives rarely provide a strong enough bond to adhere to stone. In fact, there are very few that are able to even provide a mild bond between stone and stone, stone and brick and stone to concrete etc. Two component adhesives are probably the most common type of adhesive to stick stone. However, it can be extremely difficult to bond stone successfully because a large part of that process requires mixing two different components with exact and correct ratios. If this fails, the bond fails.
Bonding stone to stone
Some of the main disadvantages of using a regular adhesive to bond stone is the fact that they are slow to cure and the bond it creates are extremely unreliable. Flexibility is a quality that is seriously lacking with two component epoxies. Without adequate flexibility, any slight movement to the structure or stone, and the entire bond could give in and fail. In order to successfully bond stone, you will need an adhesive that can fight against the porous nature of the stone. If you adhesive can’t resist the moisture, then the bond is at risk.
C-TEC, the creators of CT1, have carried out significant research in order to create a powerful and durable bond between stone. There are three different types of stone in existence. The most common and the one most regularly used in construction and building is silica dioxide. Bonding this type of stone is quite difficult, which is why you need a heavy duty adhesive to form a long lasting bond that won’t cave in.
