You are watching: Best adhesive for granite to wood
I to buy a vanity "kit" and am currently installing it. It claims to usage a "proper adhesive" for bonding the granite peak to the lumber vanity. The does not state any type of more plainly what I need to use come bond the two. This might be a stupid question, yet can I usage "Gorilla Glue"? that lists many uses, including securing floor tiles. If not, what must I use? Thanks!!
No. Gorrilla glue is a strict adhesive, and it"ll probably crack if bumped, or together the hardwood expands and also contracts. Usage a functional adhesive, prefer silicone caulk. Silicone will be removable later, and will host the granite optimal in place. If you really wanted it to never ever budge, you might use liquid nails construction adhesive.
Silicone functions well, the last stuff I used was the latex version, and also it seems to be doing it"s job!
Sikabond construction adhesive. It"s not with all the other caulk, silicon, and adhesives. It"s in the building section.
I"ve been less than impressed with Gorilla glue. Unless tightly clamped, it often tends to foam up and also expand, resulting in a an extremely weak bond. Look like I am not alone - in a current test that glues for woodworking application run by IIRC, good WoodWorking, consistently inserted Gorilla in ~ the an extremely bottom.I introduce THIS. Great stuff.

I agree that Gorilla Glue functions well for the ideal applications, but I think it"s funny just how many civilization got the impression the it"s "the ideal glue for EVERY application"! ns think it should be that their declaring was a small too convincing/boastful. The adhesive is an excellent for woodworking wherein yellow adhesive doesn"t organize well, but of course you have to clamp it! The bottom line is that no adhesive does the all. Silicone, building and construction adhesive, yellow glue, epoxy, Gorilla, and so on . . . Each has it"s place.
