How to fit a metal sink to a worktop

This process may seem rather banal and inconsequential – a procedure carried out currently, you may say, by kitchen fitters or worktop specialists as a matter of course – a method  implemented since the invention of fitted kitchens. On closer scrutiny you will find that the adhesives used historically to secure sinks to worktops are not entirely safe or permanently effective. Sinks are secured with metal clips and bonded and sealed with a silicone which often proves to be a temporary deterrent to moisture penetration and fungal growth. Over time silicone joints succumb to moisture egression and the negative effects of other prevailing conditions such as heat and cold. The bonding and sealing integrity of the product is greatly diluted and the silicone has to be removed and replaced to provide a new sealed joint. The obvious challenge arising from this situation is to find an alternative adhesive/sealant that is safe and provides a permanently effective solution. A tall order, you might well say, but the justifiable and necessitous expectation of kitchen fitters in this particular instance. What is required is a single safe adhesive/sealant that adheres and seals simultaneously to provide a permanent effective solution. In recent times a Company by the name of CT1 has researched and developed a product that bonds and seals at the same time to provide a long-lasting fix. The eponymous product CT1 meets the full criteria for an ideal bonding sealing solution to fitting a metal sink to a worktop.
