Princeton Chemical Holds Join.It Adhesive At Current Rates

Posted on 16 September 2021 by cradmin

While several adhesive suppliers announced multiple price increases over the course of the year, some totaling in excess of 11 percent, Princeton Chemical has refused to raise prices on its Join.It Surfacing Adhesive. Raw material costs have increased, but Princeton Chemical’s unique online ordering system and determination to maintain product in stock and ready to ship within 24 hours, allows the company to avoid passing on costs to users of Join.It Surfacing Adhesives.

“Now is not the time to increase pricing on fabricators, many of whom just came out of crisis mode because of the pandemic,” said Sales and Marketing Manager Kevin Cole. “Our easy-to-use online ordering system at www.PrincetonChemCo.com allows us to keep pricing extremely competitive. Additionally, we have a full inventory that generally ships in less than 24 hours and often with no shipping costs. Signing up on for an account on our website literally takes seconds, and full orders can be made easily in minutes. This streamlined process allows us to avoid increased customer costs, which is especially critical at this time in the industry’s recovery.”

According to the company Join.It is a methacrylate-based adhesive that produces strong, durable bonds for solid surfaces, quartz, granite and other natural stones, ceramic and sintered materials, and a wide range of other surfaces. Princeton Chemical manufactures Join.It in the United States for professional use in seaming countertops, backsplashes, wall panels, integral sinks and bowls, and other on-trend designs to satisfy today’s discriminating consumers.

Wood & Stone Co. Offers Stone/Surfacing Glues

Posted on 15 October 2015 by cradmin

wood and stone 2 acrylic penetrating gluesWood and Stone Company has two types of acrylic penetrating glues made for repairing and laminating granite, quartz surfacing, marble and engineered stone. The first is Wood & Stone Acrylic Penetrating Crack Sealer, which is a thin liquid designed to flow like water and made to fill cracks and reinforce stone and stone-like products. It is for very thin, hairline cracks that flowing glue has difficulty penetrating. It is  clear and cures quickly, according to the company.

The second adhesive product is Wood & Stone Acrylic Super Penetrating Glue, a low-viscosity system for bonding and filling on horizontal surfaces. While it is thinner than standard polyester flowing glues, it is not as thin as the company’s crack sealer, which allows broader usage. According to the company, it is suitable for filling larger cracks, pits and holes. Additionally, because it is clear, users can mix in ground up stone powder to assist in color matching with larger holes, chips and blowouts. And, because of its thinness, it is very suitable for laminating, as it will spread very thin to create tight seams, reports the company.

The company also makes an acrylic knife grade adhesives as well.
