Installation of facades with adhesive mixture
The classic and most common method of stone installation, primarily due to the simplicity and cost of work.
Suitable for gluing stone slabs to hard surfaces such as brick, concrete. EPS and so on.
Installation of natural stone requires knowledge of technological nuances and a specific approach.
Universal glue will not work here, you will need exactly the one that is intended for outdoor decoration. The solution consists in plastering the surface of the walls with further fastening of natural stone using adhesives with improved performance characteristics.
Special additives-modifiers impart moisture and frost resistance to the glue, contribute to good adhesion to the substrate, and resistance to weathering. At the same time, the optimal temperature for glue setting is considered to be from 10 to 25 ° C, and the best time for finishing and grouting is morning and evening.
Two-component adhesives have the highest performance characteristics due to their advantage - plasticity. The adhesive compensates for changes in the linear dimensions of natural stones due to thermal expansion. Also, strength increases, microcracks are not afraid of their rapid appearance, and the growth of mosses and lichens is inhibited in the seams.
