If you have tried to fill a stone chip with glues that don’t dry clear or with glues that turn your stone funny colors, DeFusco Industrial Supply has the answer for you. Introducing LiquaGlass chip filler for stone. This product will dry quickly and will dry clear — clear like glass.LiquaGlass chip filler

LiquaGlass is a product of modern epoxy technology, claims the manufacturer. It has been chemically formulated to cure at a very rapid rate at room temperature, and it is designed initially for marble and granite chip repair. The current accepted form of repair using cyanoacrylates has limitations because of the common “blooming” or color changing effect the CA chemistry has on many light-colored stones. It is claimed that LiquaGlass will experience none of those bad effects of the older technology and will allow the fabricator to have one specialized chemistry that can be used for basically all stones and surfaces that are in need of various small repairs.

LiquaGlass is packaged in novel containers that include dispensing pumps. The epoxy is dispensed in a 2:1 fashion, and when a small quantity (¼ ounce) is mixed, the applicator has less than five minutes to apply. Dry times can be as quick as 10 minutes in warm conditions with very small repair areas. According to the manufacturer, the repaired area can be put into service in as short of a time as one hour. Additionally, there are no associated fumes or attendant smell to the product, which is especially important for on-the-jobsite repairs. (Contact the supplier for additional information.)

LiquaGlass is handy for almost unlimited end uses. Excellent adhesion is claimed for most substrates, assuming they are properly cleaned and free of dust and moisture.

This kit is complete with the glue, mixing cups, mixing sticks and instructions, which will make it easy even for a first-time user to fill a chip and make it look great.

This epoxy will dry water clear. While epoxy is an inherently UV unstable product, this glue has been treated with UV inhibitors to make it more stable; however, it is still recommended for indoor use. If used in direct sunlight, it may develop a hue over time.
