 Preparation:

-        Locate all pieces of headstone

-        Carefully check if it will reassemble vertically

-        If so, clean all surfaces to be bonded as well as practical with a wire brush

(if it falls apart, call us)

 Mixing:

-        Scoop out 2 equal piles of epoxy putty onto plate

-        Scoop out 1 equal pile of hardener putty next to them

-        Mix with stick until well blended

 Coloring:

-        For white repairs use TiO2 (more gives better UV protection)

-        For black use marble black (more also gives better UV protection)

-        For gray mix in smaller amounts of both white and black until desired shade of gray

-        For red to pink granite use red with very small amounts of white to desired shade

-        Browns and dulls  may need adjusting with other colors

-        Universal pigments from paint mixers will make any color (you won’t need much)

-        For textured colors, pigments can be applied as a dry rub

 Applying:

-        Stir paint brush in ready to use mortar and scrub into all surfaces to be bonded (both sides)

-        Apply even (probably thin) layer of putty with putty knife

-        Place and align pieces

-        Remove excess putty that comes out with putty knife (reuse elsewhere)

-        Wipe off thin films with 91% alcohol saturated paper towel


NOTE: Epoxy works best above freezing temperatures and stone must be free of moisture. Allow 24 hours cure time before moving a stone.
