Adhesives & Grouts for Natural Stone
Bellstone Recommends Ardex Adhesives & Grouts - WHY?
Bellstone sells stone products that are capable of lasting hundreds of years, so there is little point in recommending an adhesive that will only last 10 years!
We have chosen Ardex products for the following reasons:
- They specialise in adhesives and have been making adhesives for over 50 years
- Ardex is an Australian company; it has branches in 50 countries
- Ardex has a strong commitment to the environment & rubber recycling
- They provide 1st rate technical information on their products
- They have a help line available to anyone with a person at the other end rather than a voice recording!
Selecting An Adhesive - What We Will Ask You
In helping you choose the right adhesive, we will ask you some simple questions about your project such as whether it is:
- Indoors or outdoors?
- Dry areas (inside or outside but undercover) or wet areas (pools or bathrooms)?
- Substrate - concrete/sand cement screed, compressed fibre-cement sheet, existing tiles, heated concrete slab or sheet timber?
- Normal foot traffic (home, office) or high traffic (bars, dance floors, trolleys, vehicles)?
- Dry or wet?
- Substrate - concrete/cement render, fibre-cement sheet/plasterboard, existing tiles?
