Countertop seaming adhesives have come a long way in the last 15 years and the Integra Adhesives brand (operating under IPS Corporation) has been at the forefront. What makes Integra Adhesives (Integra) “stick” out among countertop adhesives? Elevated Industrial Solutions, Elevated, has a few reasons.
Over the years, Integra has grown to be the industry leader in the two-component pre-tinted cartridge-based seaming adhesive category. Remodeling businesses, construction contractors, and those working with countertops look to Integra Adhesives as “the brand.“ It’s the gold standard of countertop seam adhesives.
Integra provides a variety of different colors, and Elevated carries more than 100 colors in stock. That’s why Elevated is Integra Adhesive’s preferred vendor. At Elevated, we send tubes nationwide, quickly – usually within two days. We even have free shipping available on some orders.
And if you’re near Denver, Colorado, or Milwaukee, Wisconsin, you can get same-day delivery or pick color tubes up from the warehouse. Convenient!
When it comes to color matching, you have some options. Integra provides several different product formulations to meet the needs of all types of fabricators. The convivence of the pre-tinted and exact mix ratio of the product avoids waste, saves time (overhand mixing and tinting), and gets the top glued up in record time. Lane Supply’s experts can help you choose the correct product formulation and assist in matching colors for unique situations.
Integra Adhesive‘s labs are state-of-the-art using various optical tools to accurately formulate the correct recipe of pigments for an optically perfect match every time. Integra also works with the major solid surface and engineered stone manufacturers to obtain samples of new material colors they develop. Using their lab, they can quickly create color matches for these new color styles that are constantly coming out.
Integra has made an online tool. They also have a slick mobile app available through both app stores.
Sometimes there are two colors of Integra that matches a particular sheet.
Other things of note when using the online color-matching tool
All colors are available in the XI Surface Bonder formulation.
They even have a mobile app to color match for when you’re on the go. The mobile app provides an additional feature of showing colors and swatches that are adjacent in color hue to the color in question. For example, the mobile app can help if a match to a particular sheet happens to be a custom color, but the job only requires a few tubes.
Use the app to see the two colors that are directly adjacent in hue to the matching color. This may be an option for a fabricator that is in a pinch and the job doesn’t’ warrant a full case of one color. A tight seam and careful mitering will be necessary to make this work.
Even if you don’t want to use color-matching options on the Integra website or mobile app, you can talk with us. Elevated is here to help you as well as provide additional industrial supplies should you need them. With a variety of stock available, nationwide shipping (including free shipping on some orders), and competitive pricing, it’s no wonder that Integra chooses us to be their preferred vendor.
