Choosing Stone for Epoxy Stone

May 5, 2016

Epoxy_Stone_OverlaysBonding stone together with Product #17 – Epoxy Stone Adhesive is attractive and functional. It allows you to have the look of natural rock. This “natural rock” will let water pass through it just like its non-epoxied counterparts. It is however a good choice when you don’t want that stone to be moved, accidentally or on purpose.

This function is so nice that I am seeing projects where larger and larger stone is being utilized for the same reasons (above) as the small stone. There are a few shortcomings that should be avoided when bonding larger stones.

You want to make sure when selecting your stone that it is not too round. Round stone reduces the square inches of surfaces touching each other that are bonded together. That reduces the strength of the material, by reducing the square inches of bonding surface. If angular stone is used (as in the picture above) you increase the surface area touching each other and increase the strength.

If you want larger stones in the mix, I suggest you use a variety of smaller stone to fill in the large gaps between the bigger stone. If you combine a mixed gradation of stone that is also angular (not round) you can get an excellent compromise of strength and large stone beauty.

What is Most Versatile Epoxy?

August 18, 2015

My company has many different products and systems. I often get asked, “What is the best epoxy?” I need details about the

Clear Chemical Resistant Epoxy #15 over Stained concrete

job to answer that question. The best epoxy is the one that is right for the specific job. That is where our company’s motto “The Right Product for the Right Job” came from. This is the driving force of our company and our technical support department. This has been our driving force for 35 years.

Perhaps the real question is, “What is the most versatile epoxy?” That is an easier question to answer. It is Product #15 – When I was an epoxy installer I always had Product #15 Clear Chemical Resistant Epoxy Resin on my jobsite.

  • Sealing of stone that has been previously epoxied together (aka epoxy-rock, stone carpet etc.)
  • Surface sealing concrete cracks and joints (when mixed with fumed silica thickener)
  • Use with fiberglass or Kevlar to make strong composite members
  • Waterproof wood joint sealer (when mixed with fumed silica thickener)
  • Wood bonding as neat material or mixed with fumed silica thickener
  • Wood Floor Coating

Product #15 – – is a great product to have around for any number of emergency situations. Please address your questions to Technical Support at 352-533-2167 or email me at

Improved Epoxy Gel Adhesives Added to

What are Epoxy Gel Adhesives

Epoxy Gel Adhesives are thickened 100% solid 2-Component Epoxy Resin and Epoxy Hardener systems. Epoxy Gel Adhesives come in various viscosities from whip cream consistency to clay consistency. Some Epoxy Gel Adhesives have a longer working time, and slow set. Some Epoxy Gel Adhesives have a short working time and fast set.

Epoxy Gel Adhesives can have a “high modulus of elasticity” (rigid), or a “low modulus of elasticity” (flexible to semi-flexible). All the Epoxy Gel Adhesives that we sell are very strong. Our Epoxy Gel Adhesives when applied to most common construction structural material that are properly prepared have a bond strength to the substrate greater than the tensile strength of the material you are bonding to. In other words if you go to pull it off from the substrate that you are bonded to, the substrate will fail before the bond of the Epoxy Gel Adhesive will fail.

Uses for Epoxy Gel Adhesives

Epoxy Gel Adhesives are one of the most versatile tools in the construction industry. Epoxy Gel Adhesives are useful for bonding concrete to concrete, wood to concrete, wood to wood, and for that matter most typical construction structural materials to other construction structural materials. Epoxy Gel Adhesives are also useful in patching and repairing inperfections in concrete, wood and steel. Epoxy Gel Adhesives have also successfully been used to repair wood damaged by termites, wet rot, or dry rot. Epoxy Gel Adhesives are used in setting dowel bars, anchor bolts, and ports for epoxy injection.

Newest Epoxy Gel Adhesives Added to Product line.

Product #2005 Low Modulus Fast Setting Epoxy Gel is a two component 100% solids designed for shallow repair on either vertical or horizontal surfaces. This product is easy to mix and use and has the consistency of Vaseline petroleum jelly. Additionally, the product, because it is a 100% solids product, can be applied thicker on horizontal surfaces when required.

Product #2006 – Epoxy High-Mod Gel Adhesive and Bonding Resin is a 100% solids high-mod epoxy gel adhesive used for vertical and overhead bonding applications and structural repairs. Epoxy High-Mod Gel Adhesive and Bonding Resin – Product #2006 is also used as a grout for anchor bolts, dowels and rebar. Epoxy High-Mod Gel Adhesive and Bonding Resin – Product #2006 Meets ASTM C881 Requirements for Type I, Type II, Grade 3, Class B, C, D, E.

Product #2007 Epoxy Fresh Concrete to Hardened Concrete Adhesive is a two component, 100% solids epoxy resin system designed to bond new concrete to old and other materials to concrete. It has a convenient 2:1 mix ratio, by ASTM C-881-90, Types I, II, IV and V, Grade 2, Class “B” and “C” volume with a viscosity similar to heavyweight oil. Epoxy Fresh Concrete to Hardened Concrete Adhesive #2007 (adhesive) exceeds the requirements of ASTM C-881 Type II, Grade 2, Class “B” “C” “D” and E.

Product #2011 Low Modulus Fast Set Epoxy Gel is a two component 100% solids polymer system designed for applications where a resilient joint material is needed. The two component material (standard) is supplied with a gray component and a clear component. Product #2011 was developed for plural component pump equipment, and is available in cartridge units.

Product #2704 Epoxy Gel Super Fast Cure is a fast setting, 100% solids epoxy crack gel and filler used to line, patch, or repair floor and wall surfaces. Epoxy Gel Super Fast Cure Product #2704 is the ideal material for repair of surfaces damaged from environmental or chemical attack. Epoxy Gel Super Fast Cure Product #2704 can also be used as a base material beneath coating, slurry, and mortar systems to repair before coating.

Product #2707 Splash Zone Epoxy and Underwater Epoxy Paste is a moisture-insensitive, two-component, 100% solids epoxy-resin system. Splash Zone Epoxy and Underwater Epoxy Paste Product #2707 is mixed at a 2:1 ratio, by volume, this product produces a paste-like material that is ideal for protection or restoration of concrete, steel and timber piles and other structural elements in marine environments.

Limitations does not recommend using any epoxy gel adhesive to bond anything to a ceiling without reliable mechanical methods of attachment as well.
