STONE ADHESIVE, WHICH ONE TO CHOOSE?

//STONE ADHESIVE, WHICH ONE TO CHOOSE?

What stone glue should we choose to achieve the expected resistance and finish?

These are some of the doubts that arise when choosing the correct stone glue. With which to join marble, porcelain, granite, ceramic or quartz agglomerate. Putties and resins are among the most demanded products by marble workers or sculptors, who use them daily. The most demanded chemical characteristic in these adhesives is that after hardening, they acquire the properties of stone. As is its hardness and its color.

ADHESIVE FORMATS FOR STONE

The formats in which we can find these adhesives depend a lot on their composition, use and application. On the one hand, there would be liquids and on the other the solids that exist in putty, paste or silicone format.

adhesivo adhex2, belcare, maser, maquinaria piedra, marmol, piedra, granito

 

 

Within these two divisions we can distinguish between:

One-component adhesives, which do not need the help of a catalyst for hardening.

And two-component adhesives, which are those that do need a catalyst. Due to this mixture, a stone-like hardening and appearance will be created.

Catalysis is a process by which the rate of chemical reaction is increased, thanks to the participation of a substance called a catalyst. With the use of the catalyst, the setting of the stone glue is accelerated.

TYPES OF STONE GLUE

In the market we find them for sale with different chemical formulas. So therefore, we can find putties, silicones, resins, pastes and glues.

Epoxy: It is an epoxy or polyepoxide stone glue, which is a thermosetting polymer that hardens with the mixture of a catalyst or hardener.

Polyurethane: This type of adhesive has its chemical base in isocyanate. They are characterized by being elastic during application and by being highly rigid after drying. Which provides great resistanceia.

Polyester: The chemical base of this adhesive starts from the elastomer, which is characterized by its flexibility and transparency.La base química de este adhesivo parte del elastómero, el cual se caracteriza por su flexibilidad y transparencia.

catalizador, belcare, maser, maquinaria piedra, marmol, piedra, granitoCatalyst: It is the chemical component that certain stone glues need and that causes the acceleration in the hardening process of these. This gives it toughness, but does not alter the appearance and final result.

 

 

APPLICATION OF THE GLUE INDOOR AND OUTDOOR

Vertically for walls or horizontally for countertops and tiles

When choosing a stone glue, the first thing we must take into account is the place where the piece that we are going to join will be placed.

  • If it is the covering of walls and therefore a vertical work, the use of putties is the most advisable. This is because it allows its molding.
  • We can also work horizontally, as in the union of a countertop. For this job, liquid glues or glue are more manageable and cover the pores.

Most of the adhesives on the market withstand normal humidity and temperature conditions. However, on many occasions the coating will be subjected to extreme situations and therefore we need a more specific glue. For this, epoxy-based and polyester-based ones are the most suitable, since they withstand large thermal expansion and high humidity situations.

TRANSPARENT PUTTY FOR STONE OR COLORED

Restoration, marble, Travertine, porcelain, quartz, granite

Another element to take into account is the type of finish of the joints, visible or hidden joints, holes, etc. Today, there is a wide variety of products. Thanks to this, we can find the color that best suits that of the stone.

    Buenos días! Muchas gracias por la información! Me gustaría saber que pegamento recomendaríais para pegar los costados de una isla de cocina realizada con terrazo a los costados de los muebles?

    Muchas gracias!

      Hola Alba ¡Gracias por tu comentario! . Para la unión de esos costado y con la información que nos facilitas es difícil date la solución idónea. Si las piezas que vas a unir las dos son de terrazo te recomendamos un adhesivo epoxidico como Adhex+, más abajo tienes el enlace. Esto hará que la unión sea más solida. Si lo que quieres es unir la piedra a la madera, los adhesivos epoxidicos pueden ser una buena solución, ya que es probable que no dañen la madera. ¡Esperamos haberte podido ayudar!

    Buenos días. ¿Podrían indicarme que tipo de adhesivo sellador preciso para fijar un fregadero de acero inox bajo una encimera de granito? Muchas gracias

      ¡Hola Recadero! Gracias por tu comentario. Para la instalación de un fregadero de acero inoxidable a una encimera de granito, esto debe de realizarse a través de una fijación con tornillos que vienen suministrados con el fregadero. La unión de un fregadero inox y una encimera siempre debe ser de este modo. Lamentamos no poder resolver tu duda. ¡Muchas gracias!

    Buenas tardes, querîa intentar fijar unas baldosas de porcelanico que suenan al pisarlas y tendría que ser un adhesivo muy liquido que se cuele entre las juntas…..me aconsejan alguno?

    • maser Tuesday November 17th, 2020 at 12:32 PM - Reply

      Hola Alberto, Gracias por tu comentario. Para fijar baldosas de porcelánico te recomendamos nuestras resinas líquidas, para su aplicación debes proteger muy bien el suelo para no dañarlo ya son muy potentes. Para el tipo de problema que nos describes te recomendamos que utilices un cemento cola muy líquido. ¡Esperamos haberte podido ayudar!
