How to Stick Marble16 August 2011
How to stick marble is normally a difficult question to answer. Why is this; or why is there such a demand to stick marble? Firstly let’s look at why marble is so difficult to stick. Marble is a metamorphic that has been formed and re-crystallised due to extreme pressure and heat, sometimes up to 800°c. This creates an almost perfect non porous smooth surface. This is one of the reasons why marble is so difficult to stick.
Marble has become increasingly more popular in domestic applications such as marble kitchen counter tops that have to be attached to stainless steel brackets. To drill and bolt the marble is extremely difficult and time consuming so the ideal option is to stick the marble. There are some products that proclaim to stick marble but do not perform favourably. Initially it may appear the marble has bonded but after a short period of time the bond deactivates. To achieve a successful bond the adhesive molecules need to penetrate the surface and needs to remain flexible.
The CT1 unique sealant and construction adhesive has been used very successfully to stick marble for over five years. But what happens when you need to stick marble on a vertical application? Heavy marble such as plaques have to be drilled and mechanically fixed this is a difficult and time consuming job. Enter CT1’s big brother Power Grab n Bond – the phenomenal heavy duty adhesive to stick marble on vertical applications.
Power Grab n Bond is truly an amazing phenomenon, can you imagine taking a marble slab weighing 16/18kg and sticking it straight onto a wall or any vertical surface with no support, no fixings and absolutely no sliding. Sounds impossible but you have to see it and try it to believe it. How does it stick marble so well? Power Grab n Bond is a unique construction adhesive developed by C-Tec using a hybrid polymer formulation that will replace mechanical fixings.
Power Grab n Bond not only will successfully stick marble but will stick all stones, metal, plastics, virtually anything.
