Solid surface couter edge8/21
We have a project that calls for a solid surface (Staron) edge on PL counter tops. All the reading I have done points to silicone as the best glue to apply the Staron to the PB & Ply edge. I would like to use the seam epoxy to glue the corners but I am concerned the different expansion of the Straron compared to the PB will cause the Staron to crack.
Has anyone done this and if so did it stand up long term? All the install manuals say the expansion of the solid surface is due to temp where the wood is moisture and that is why a flexible bond like silicone is required. This is what makes me wonder about fixing the corners tight with epoxy.
The tops are 40" x 120" banded on 4 sides.
Always silicone to any other substrate. Epoxy for staron to staron joints only.
