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.

Solid Surface Countertop Crack Repair

Posted on 11 November 2013 by cradmin

Here is a video that shows the complete steps from beginning to ending on how to repair a solid surface countertop. While there are numerous methods for doing this, this is one interesting way. This video was shared by Nurlex Fabrication in the United Kingdom, and shows a pretty complex crack repair in a DuPont Corian countertop.

There are a couple of things that maybe could be done a little better in the video, such as flat sanding, versus tipping the sander on its edge (which could possibly cause low spots in the material), and the narrator uses the term “v-groove” when he means “v-shaped groove” instead of the v-grooving process, but the video is done quite well and the point comes across strongly.

We hope you enjoy this video, and if you have or know of a video that we should share, please send a link to [email protected] for consideration.

Utilizing Granite, Quartz and Solid Surface Repair Services

Posted on 24 October 2012 by CRadmin2

Many countertop owners are surprised to learn that damage to granite, quartz and solid surface countertops can be repaired, often without having to remove and reinstall them. While fabricators are aware that these repairs are possible, the work may require some of their best employees, and it detracts from the primary task at hand, which is fabricating new countertops.

One solution to the dilemma caused by damaged countertops is to hire a repair specialist. A specialist, such as Surface Link Corporation, can complete repairs on countertops from most major manufacturers, and can help fulfill warranty service work that would otherwise detract from new countertop fabrication. The service has the potential to save fabricators time and money while keeping their customers satisfied.

Countertop repair firms that hire only professionally trained and certified technicians can complete any type of granite, quartz or solid surface repairs with minimal disruption to the lives of the customers requiring the repairs. Restorations, refinishing jobs and repairs can be completed onsite, and most jobs can be done in a single day, especially if they are only crack and scratch repairs.

Although they are still relatively unknown, specialist countertop repair companies seem to be catching on with both consumers and fabricators. When asked about the current market, the national account manager at Surface Link, Marty Vatis, said, “Many people are surprised to hear that their countertops can be repaired or refinished to look like new and that all the work is done without removing the countertop. In addition, many are surprised to hear that we can replace their sink without removing the countertop as well.”

As proof that the market for these specialists is improving, Surface Link has just expanded to offer service in all 50 states after 15 years as a certified warranty agent. Previously, residential and commercial restoration services were only offered by the company in a few select markets.
