The best way to attach granite corbels to a granite countertop.
The best way to attach granite corbels to a granite countertop is to glue them in place with a tried and tested super strong industrial adhesive that is safe – does not crack or shrink and is long lasting. Kitchen island granite countertops need an overhang to accommodate stools and legroom. To provide that overhang the granite countertop needs corbel support every thirty inches on average. The idea is to ensure you instal the corbel supports to the side of stool positions so adequate legroom is allowed. Traditionally metal brackets were screwed into the wooden island to give support to the granite countertop overhang and that process required drilling and screwing. They were not aesthetically pleasing on the eye and their role was purely functional. If corbels were used instead of metal brackets they had to be carefully drilled to provide holes for screws to secure them to the island – a tedious task not without risk of damaging the granite corbel surface. A new method of attaching the corbels was badly needed to simplify and strengthen the bond between corbel and kitchen island. Many strong adhesives were tried but they all had failings and did not produce the desired result – a strong, long lasting adhesive solution. Fortunately a super strong industrial adhesive has been developed that meets the full criteria for effective multi purpose bonding applications.
An innovative super strong adhesive has been developed.
Power Grab N Bond is the revolutionary new heavy duty adhesive from CT1, the home of adhesives and sealants designed specifically for the construction industry. The result of years of research and development into chemically engineered industrial adhesives it has quickly established itself as the ‘go to’ solution for practically all bonding applications. Endorsed by construction workers and industrial operatives in Spain, the UK, Ireland and Norway this innovative adhesive has become the must have item in every trades person’s tool box. Its unique formulation combining super strength, flexibility and longevity is based on CT1’s eponymous construction adhesive/sealant but with greater density and formidable grab. Power Grab N Bond is the perfect heavy duty bonding solution for attaching granite corbels to granite kitchen countertops as it was created for vertical adhesion tasks. Designed structurally to adhere stone, marble and granite slabs to block or concrete facades it is ideal for attaching granite corbels to a wooden kitchen island as countertop supports. Not only are they functional but also decorative and attractive in adding a focal point to the kitchen island. Power Grab N Bond’s strength may be astronomical but its application is very easy. You simply deliver beads of adhesive product from the container directly onto the corbel, using a caulking gun, and press it firmly into position on the island and underneath the granite countertop overhang. The adhesive will provide instant grab with no sliding and will cure to a strength that is stronger than the granite itself. The future of successful industrial adhesion is here now!
