Available from Braxton-Bragg, Tenax Glaxs is a new generation, bi-component material, designed to specifically address both the “shadow” effect, as well as sun-fading or yellowing under normal UV exposure.

The product is a water-clear material that will not create a shadow or bleed into the stone. It does not change the color of the stone when absorbed by the seam, allowing the stone to retain its authentic color.

In addition, it has been extensively tested with an accelerated UV weather-testing simulator which tests conditions of UV rays, rain, fog, hot, cold, etc.

Because Glaxs is a bi-component material, the mixing ratio is extremely sensitive. Unlike polyester or epoxy adhesives, Glaxs must be mixed at an exact ratio. To assist the fabricators with this ratio, Tenax produces Glaxs in a special breakthrough pouch that allows the exact mix ratio.  Simply squeeze one end of the pouch and break the seal that separates the A from the B, and then cleanly mix the two parts together. After mixing for one minute, tear one end of the pouch, squeeze the Glaxs out of the pouch, and easily apply to the stone.

When working with white and light-colored stone, Braxton reports that fabricators can have confidence that the stone will not develop yellow streaks over the long term. Glaxs is VOC free and non-hazardous, and the reaction time is independent of the outside temperature.
