Nowadays, there are countless kitchen renovation projects, but more people will still choose stainless steel sinks and marble countertops. This is both beautiful and durable. Today, Afastainlesskb is talking about how to combine Stainless Steel Small Radius Sinks with granite countertops.
It is important to understand that the materials used to combine these two different materials are silicone sealant, Klock gun, high-strength epoxy, 2x4 wood (longer than sink opening), bar clamps, and wrenches. It is important to note that there is ample time for drying and curing before using strong epoxy and silicone caulking before connecting to the drain and using the sink.
Specific steps are as follows:
1. Clean the underside of the granite surface to remove any dust or debris left during the cutting process. Dust can interfere with the bonding of epoxy and silicone sealants. Apply a continuous silicone seal around the open bottom of the granite countertop.
2. Place a 2 x 4 piece of wood on top of the opening in the granite countertop. Press the sink against the bottom of the granite countertop and hold it for at least 30 seconds so that the caulking time begins to adhere. In the next step, keep pressure on the sink from below. Insert the bar clip into the drain hole of the sink and connect it to 2 x 4. If the sink has two drain holes, use a second bar clip to maintain even pressure. Tighten the clip partially to secure the sink in place.
3. Adjust from the top to ensure the sink is properly positioned on the granite. After the sink is properly seated, fully tighten the clamp.
Use high-strength epoxy to mount studs and sink clips to the granite base. Wait 10 minutes for the epoxy to cure before installing the clip.
