What is the expected shelf life?
Properly stored – the Surface Bonder XI and Surface Bonder Zero have a shelf life of two years. All our other adhesives are rated for one year. For best results, we recommend that you use the adhesive within 6 months of production. Elevated temperatures will reduce the shelf life of any adhesive so refrigeration is an acceptable means of storage. For optimum shelf life and performance, store adhesive upright away from direct sunlight in a cool area or fridge. Store between 50-70 F degrees for best results.
Can you match other suppliers’ adhesive colors?
The lab in our production facility has all the necessary pigments to match nearly any color. Using our extensive adhesive color line up we have matched more than 10,000 colors for Stone, Quartz, Solid Surface, including those matched by our competitors and more. However, if you have a custom color requirement and can provide a sample of the product – we can do that too.
What are Bonding Fasteners for?
Bonding Fasteners can be used with our Component Bonder to under mount sinks or other fixtures on Solid Surface, Quartz, Granite or Engineered Stone. This simple system can greatly reduce the labor time involved in sink installation and when properly applied is incredibly strong. Watch the Video.
