Tenax Titanium Extra Clear Knife Grade
Tenax Titanium Extra Clear Knife Grade is the latest generation of vinyl ester glue formulas. Titanium Extra Clear is virtually completely clear in film during application. Tenax Titanium is extremely strong with excellent adhesion with a very fast cure time of about 15 minutes.
Tenax used the latest raw resin materials to make Titanium very low yellowing in outdoor or UV applications. Titanium cures shiny and is very easily polished. Titanium takes color very well. Just a drop goes a very long way for easier color matching.
Titanium is a drip-less formula glue. So it will stay on the edge and not on the floor. Titanium in the can looks very very light in color and when spreading it becomes almost invisible. This characteristic makes working with light and white-colored materials much easier. With a gel time of 4-5 minutes and a full cure in about 15 minutes, the Tenax Titanium will keep the production pieces moving through the shop. Tenax Titanium is made to work with:
- Marble: especially white-colored materials
- Granite: all granites
- Quartz: all quartz materials, especially the white
- Ceramic and Porcelain: from the thinnest to the thickest materials, the bond is extremely strong

Instructions for use
Make sure the surface to be treated is dry, clean, and free of dust. If coloring, add the coloring paste to the resin before mixing it with the catalyst. An excess of coloring paste may affect the final product so use caution. The mixing ratio of resin to catalyst is 100:2/3 (see chart below). Stir vigorously and apply. Do not place unused product back in the can. Make sure the can is sealed tightly after use.
Keep away from heat, humidity, and sun. The product will last at least 10 months if kept between 68°F – 77°F.
Please read the safety data sheet before using it.
