100% VINYL ESTER ADHESIVE
A translucent (pearlescent), strong-bonding, 100% Vinyl Ester adhesive making it ideal for invisible joints especially on light colored stones. Perfect for seaming, laminating, mitering and chip repair on all types of natural and engineered stone.
Superior PEARL is very light / white (pearlescent) in color making it ideal for invisible joints, especially on light/white colored stones. Perfect for seaming, laminating and chip repair on all types of natural and engineered stone.
Superior PEARL is available in (3) unique viscosities (See Viscosity Chart Above)
- FULL Knife Grade ‐ Smooth paste consistency
- EHC Knife Grade ‐ Thicker/Less Shear paste consistency (Ideal for mitered edges)
- FLOWING – Pourable liquid (ideal for horizontal applications)
Superior PEARL utilizes advanced Vinyl Ester resin technology making it a great choice for light/white stones and mitered edges. (Due to stone porosity, TEST for “shadowing” on white marble and light colored stones before application)
The light pearlescent color makes it easy to add Superior Coloring Paste for perfect color matching.
To retain its “pearlescent” color, use ONLY the specified amount of hardener and ONLY use hardener supplied by Superior.

Be sure to TEST each substrate for bonding and appearance prior to the actual application.
Use: To achieve the best results, the contact surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned and dried. Before adding the hardener, the resin may be tinted with Superior Coloring Paste to match the color of the stone. The resin is then thoroughly mixed with no more than 1%-3% of the white paste hardener (BPO) by weight. At a temperature of 70°F (21°C), the mixture stays workable for 4-6 minutes. Higher temperatures shorten the working time and lower temperatures extend the working time. After 20-30 minutes, the adhesive is fully cured and work can continue with the stone. For white marble, be sure to test for shadowing and color match prior to application. For indoor use only. Do NOT store above 75°F (24°C).
Storage: Store indoors at room temperature. Do NOT store above 75°F (24°C). High heat and cold temperatures will adversely affect the shelf life. Avoid storage in direct sunlight and where freeze/thaw conditions may exist.
