Araldite takes the heat out of the kitchen
Here's a great idea on how you can save money and customise your kitchen accessories at the same time!
Use Araldite(R) Indoor Fix to make contemporary looking trivets to protect your work surfaces.
This newly refurbished kitchen features oiled-oak blockboard wood surfaces and slip tiles arranged in brick format. Using spare tiles, some pieces of finished timber and Araldite(R) Indoor Fix, we made some modern looking trivets to protect the surfaces from hot pans and dishes.
We applied the adhesive in 'beads' to ensure regular spread and contact.
Then laid the tiles, applying firm pressure to each for about 20 seconds.
We used a spare tile just to check the alignment of the trivet surface.
Two matching trivets give us portable protection for wood surfaces and they look great with the decor.
Araldite(R) Indoor Fix adhesive sets in 20 seconds under firm pressure and builds to full strength in 72 hours but our trivets were in use the next day.
If you prefer a different finish we suggest grouting the tiles and painting the base to match your chosen colour scheme.
