How do you fill a granite fissure?
Also asked, how do you fix a granite fissure?
Cracks and fissures are very repairable using a special epoxy that is meant specifically for fixing natural imperfections in stone, large or small! Since the epoxy is very runny, a fabricator will carefully lay the slab on top of plastic and pour the epoxy over the cracks and fissures, letting it set overnight.
One may also ask, what is a fissure in granite? Pits, Fissures and Watermarks. A fissure is defined in the granite industry as a "visible separation along intercrystalline boundaries or the voids between mineral crystals.” They develop during the repeated cycles of heating and cooling during the stone's formation. Fissures should not be confused with cracks.
Accordingly, how do you fill gaps in granite?
Use an epoxy kit to fill the crack between slabs of granite on your counter. Mix the epoxy according to the package instructions, and select a color that will closely match your granite so it is less visible once dry. Carefully fill in the seam, again moving back to front, and wipe off any excess as you go.
Is it normal for Granite to have cracks?
Cracks. Granite is extremely unlikely to crack during normal use. Most cracks are the result of stress during handling, fabrication, or installation. However, it is possible to cause cracks or stress fractures by standing on countertops or, in some cases, placing extremely hot objects on the surface.
