Cookware and plates that drag on the countertop can scratch it. This video from Chemical Concepts demonstrates how to repair scratches in porcelain countertops using SurfaceRenu Scratch Repair System.

Chemical Concepts to Feature New Products at Coverings 2017

Posted on 28 March 2017 by cradmin

Chemical Concepts has been in the countertop fabrication and kitchen remodeling business for more than 50 years, and this year at Coverings 2017, the company is featuring several new products, including Stonetac Activator, 6600 Rodmaster Quick-set Rodding Adhesive, 650UC Ultra Clear Epoxy and the Counterplate Plus 12-in. bracket.

The Rodmaster 6600 Quick-Set rodding compound is a toughened structural acrylic adhesive that sets up in 5 to 10 minutes and offers 5 times the strength compared to polyester adhesives. This convenient cartridge-based product is much faster to apply than traditional epoxies, saving time and labor while providing superior protection for delicate surfaces.

The new Counterplate Plus 12-in. bracket provides ultimate support for bartop overhangs, with no deflection even at high loads. These brackets offer the strength of 1/2-in.-thick steel without the weight, bulk or cost. They are also much easier to install than 1/2-in.-thick supports.

Chemical Concepts Introduces New Counter-Lok Tool

Posted on 13 October 2014 by cradmin

chemcon picThe Counter-Lok™ is used to install and align ‘bridge’ sections of granite when a sink or cooktop is installed at two seams in the countertop. These small strips or ‘bridge’ pieces are often difficult to align correctly using conventional techniques. This inexpensive tool simplifies and streamlines this process with great results.
To use the new system, set up Counter-Lok tool on both seams. Apply a silicone sealant to the top of the cabinet where the ‘bridge’ section will be installed. Prepare the ‘bridge’ piece for installation using your preferred seaming adhesive. Insert ‘bridge’ piece and level with existing counter using supplied nylon thumbscrews to adjust for height and alignment. Remove excess adhesive and prepare seam. Let adhesive set according to manufacturer’s recommendations. Remove Counter-Lok tool and finish seam.
