Trying to Bond Stone to Concrete is extremely difficult to say the least, but why is this the case?
There are certain reasons, but primarily the composition of the concrete and the porous nature of the stone create an almost impossible environment to bond Stone to Concrete.
The products available on the market for Stone and Concrete bonding are sparse. Even the ones that are available are barely fit for the job. Most are the epoxy type, which is made up of two components. These epoxy adhesives do not perform adequately for Stone or Concrete bonding, for a couple of reasons. Firstly, epoxies are temperamental in respect that if two components are not mixed in exact measurements they will fail. This means that intricate precision and accuracy is required to formulate the best bond. Secondly, they are slow to cure and in some cases will take up to a week to completely cure. Thirdly, they lack flexibility. This is a real disadvantage when bonding Stone to Concrete because there is a lot of movement due to temperature/climate change.

This incredibly pioneering product, in the field of construction adhesives will bond Stone to Concrete immediately without the need for any supports.
