Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I use my existing equipment for dispensing your adhesives?

Yes, you can! Our Adhesives are packaged in 250ml and 500ml cartridge sizes.  We recommend the use of any of the dispensers available from GranQuartz.

  • Will your adhesives work on Solid Surface, Quartz Surfaces and Granite?

The Nitro One Shot Stone and Quartz adhesives are designed to work on solid surface, quartz and natural stone.

The colors were developed to match a number of key quartz brands available in the US market.  The wide range of color options also makes these adhesives an excellent choice for granite and natural stone installations.

If you have any specific questions, feel free to call your GranQuartz sales rep for advice!

  • How strong is your adhesive?

Our adhesives have been tested using industry standardized procedures and provide improved performance properties over most OEM adhesives.

  • What is the expected shelf life?

If properly stored – the adhesive has an estimated shelf life of one year. For best results, we recommend that you use the adhesive within 6 months of purchase. Please note that elevated temperatures will reduce the shelf life of any adhesive so try to keep your inventory stored under cool temperature.  For optimum shelf life and performance, store adhesive upright away from direct sunlight in a cool area or fridge. Store between 50-70 F degrees for best results. Refrigerated adhesives may stay for up to two years.

  • What is the cure time for the adhesive?

Once applied, our standard adhesive cure time is approximately 10 to 15 minutes at 75F. Handling strength can be estimated at 2X the open time.
