Time for rapid countertops

Using the best products and materials for your manufacturing operation is imperative. Your tools, equipment, and materials need to meet your high standards, which is why we keep a full inventory of products from Integra Adhesives, a leader in glues and materials for various surfaces, including countertops.

Integra Adhesives’ (Integra) Surface Bonder Rapid is one of the top options for anyone who manufactures products that will be exposed to cold temperatures. With winter around the corner, you can create high-quality, reliable products with Surface Bonder Rapid from Integra! (And you can do it fast!) 

About the Surface Bonder Rapid

Surface Bonder Rapid is a specialty adhesive designed for faster production output. It dries faster —without sacrificing strength — reducing wait time and significantly increasing productivity. That’s great if you’re a high-volume manufacturer who needs things done quickly. Because this adhesive is specifically designed to cure in half the time of other products, your fabrication efforts can continue with peak efficiency. 

Rapid can be used in many situations, but it’s ideal for mitered edges, deck seams, and vertical applications. It’s no drip. With a high strength, it gives better performance to thinner sheets and can be counted on to create long-lasting surfaces. 

Various materials can be fabricated with Surface Bonder Rapid, including: 

  • Natural stone
  • Quartz
  • Compact ceramics 
  • Porcelain 

Surface Bonder Rapid has a working time of 4 to 8 minutes and a fixture time of 10 to 16 minutes, so your team can apply the adhesive and start working on the material faster than ever.

To meet your specific needs, Surface Bonder Rapid is available in a variety of colors, including shades of gray, brown, white, and black to match every application. Integra has a lab that combines advanced technology and practical knowledge to create color matching that is unsurpassed in the industry. But you don’t need to call their lab to get color information. You can use their app or contact us!

Comparing Rapid to other surface bonder products

We know selecting a specific surface bonder can be tricky. It’s why we developed a comparison chart, so you can select the best Integra Adhesives product for the job. Use this chart from the technical specs and know which product is best for which substrate (stone, engineered stone, porcelain, marble, etc.) and job.

Your source for Integra Adhesives

Integra has a full line of top-quality adhesives, but they do not sell directly to customers. To get their products (which are in high demand), you need to work with a preferred vendor. That’s Elevated.

We can offer two-day shipping to most locations and have over 100 colors in stock. Plus, we can break a case for those smaller jobs. Our service is unparalleled with people committed to seeing your business succeed. And we carry all lines of surface bonders as well as a range of other countertop products such as caulks and polishers.
