You can order your ceramic picture with a special adhesive made by a company called 3M. Customers sometimes wonder exactly how secure this adhesive is once applied to a headstone or grave marker.
Please read below a summary of what 3M states about its very dependable product.
The 3M adhesive is great for ceramic pictures because it seals the gap between rounded and flat surfaces. It also resists solvents, liquids, U.V. and thermal expansion/contraction, making certain that its seal will last for the ages.
Additionally, the 3M adhesive assures a beautiful memorial because it leaves no visual interruptions for screws, rivets, welding or any type of fastener. The adhesive consistently outperforms traditional fasteners in this vital area.
The 3M adhesive's all acrylic construction provides strength and durability in extreme applications. It bonds with high holding strength for static and dynamic loads. The adhesive resists stress, fatigue, vibration, heat, cold, temperature cycling, moisture, solvents and UV light. Unlike mechanical fasteners which concentrate stress, the 3M VHB tape provides a continuous bond - distributing stress along the entire surface.
The 3M adhesive's foam is 100 percent closed cell; as it bonds it creates a durable shield. Liquids can be sealed in or out, and a protective barrier is formed which resists stress and fatigue.
An important property of the 3M tape is viscoelasticity. Visco- for viscous flow of 3M VHB into the microstructure of the substrates that are being bonded and elasticity for the elastic nature of VHB tape. Viscoelastic materials have the unique ability for energy absorption and stress relaxation, both of which are important for dynamic strength and vibration damping.
