Reinforcing granite and other natural stone countertops is an important part of the fabrication process. By rodding the material around cutouts for faucets, sinks, and other areas, fabricators can increase the flexural strength of the stone, significantly reducing the chance of breaks or cracks. Less cracks means more time and money saved and less dissatisfied customers.
When rodding granite, there is no better option than Rod-It strengthening glue by Gluewarehouse.com.
