    Customers have been asking us for a true clear adhesive that cures fast and provides strong bonds on stone, polyesters and acrylics. We’ve responded.

    The new color “Glass” is the latest to join the Seam-it lineup and it’s unique formulation provides a crystal clear glue-perfect for Granite laminations and difficult to seam products like the Avonite Glass series.

    This is great news. I have used clear adhesive in the past and the glue turns yellow after it's cured.

    Are you saying this glue stays clear even after it's cured?

    Should work great for Avonite.

    Andy,
    Yes it stays Clear. 
    We have always been able to produce a true clear even after curing-the problem has been it required a really slow cure (1 hour or so). The new chemistry maintains clarity and cures in roughly 20-25 minutes.
    I am sending you and Gene samples to try.

    Thanks for the information.

    If you use this color on medium colors like Sandstone, would you see a dark like if there was a gap in the seam?

    Andy, I can answer that.   Yes.  Super clear is only good for the tightest of seams be they granite or ss.

    Any any any gaps will show a shadow line and look dark.

    Chad could this be used to fill an engraving? we are looking for an optically pure (or as near as possible) material to back fill engraving and back side bas-relief type work to help maintain the strength of the working surface above. Just wondering and would rather ask and find out not then not ask and miss a tool that could be used.

    Hi Michael
    The short answer is yes-you can use the adhesive as an inlay/filler and the new Glass is very clear. It has optical properties similar to tempered glass in that a thin casting will apear completley clear and a thick casting will have a slightly off clear appearance. It doesn't turn cloudy' just a very slight green tinge like you would see in a thick peice of glass. When using adhesive as an inlay, it is important to fully wet out the mixing tip before filling your casting to eliminate air bubbles.

    I would reccomend ordering a free sample and trying it on your application-we would love to hear the results. Visit www.gluewarehouse.com and look to the top right corner of the homepage for the free sample link.
    I should also mention Align Rite Tool. They manufacture and sell an acrylic product that is specifically for inlays.  www.alignritetool.com/inlay.htm  Not sure if they do a clear.

    I am on the road this week and posting from a mobile so excuse the grammar and spelling . If you want to discuss on the phone my number is 360 325 6607.
    All the best
    Chad

    So the seam adhesive will work as a fill without issue? Is that correct?

    It will work as an inlay/fill but you have to watch for air bubbles (wetting out the tip should eliminate them).
    Also keep in mind that the larger the casting is the more chance of discoloration due to the glue getting hotter as a result of the larger mass.
    As with any new adhesive application, I would recommend running a small test piece before going full speed ahead.

    Chad,

    I talked to Ray and he has put me onto ta company here in the UK that imports your glues and has some of the glass type in stock. I will be contacting them and getting some as the image he sent showed that it should work as it was 3/16" thick (4.75 mm) which should do the job just perfect. Also had a good chat about ways to improve application and decrease air penetration (bubbles ruin product).

    I am looking forward to hopefully a solution to a problem for me and a number of designer who want to use one of my product line in a way that currently can't be done.

    Gene

    Frost is the best match for the Avonite Glass series. The Ultra Clear (we call it Glass) is recommended for sheets like 3Form and Lumicor where the sheet is completely clear.

    It can also be used as a back up if you happen to run out of adhesive.

    I can send you a couple cartridges to try it out- It'll work great for those inlays you do with coffee beans or screws or MnM's.
