We are a stockist of marble glues, epoxies, stone mastics and polyester resin glues.
These marble glues are specialized products that are fully imported from Italy and they have been used by stonemasons, tilers and builders for more than 20 years here in Australia.
Our marble glues & colourants consist of epoxies & polyester resin glues that have different uses. Our brand Tenax has it in 4 base colours. They are available in transparent, white, beige and black. As for epoxies, we carry the Bellinzoni brand from Italy as well which comes in high grade polishable transparent ultra thin liquid, liquid & solid...
These special polyester resin marble glues & epoxies also come with additional colourants that you can add to the base colours to produce a good colour match when filling cracks or chips. They are all knife grade which means you can use a single edge razor blade to cut of the excess as it sets.
The product when used as marble mastics is suitable to use at the rear of the tile and can bond the marble tiles to various sub surfaces. It has excellent strength and is great for cladding of walls tiles and can assist in absorbing some weight distribution for larger format tiles. However during installation, it is important to check the substrates suitability for tiling when choosing Tenax or Bellinzoni marble glues as an adhesive. This is particularly important when tiling wall tiles.
Fast setting polyester resin marble glues like these make stone working a lot easier. After 15 - 20 minutes, they harden enabling further sanding or grinding work to continue and if used as an installation adhesive, there will be no downtime as compared to overnight drying of regular tile glues. These marble glues are excellent for use on moisture sensitive natural stone tiles as it have no water component and does not give rise to absorption through the material.
These marble glues are 2 component. Component A is the glue and component B is the catalyst or hardener. If additional colourants need to be added, it has to be added to component A before adding Component B. You will require approximately 2% by volume of Component B to be added to Component A and the pot life would be approximately 2 - 10 minutes. The pot life can be prolonged by adding lesser of Component B.
The excess can either be cut off using a single edge razor blade as it is setting or to use diamond abrasives to smoothen it off by grinding. The second option will give you a more seamless feel when filling a crack or repairing a chip.
