  • What if you have to remove a previously installed sink or bowl?
    The Black Mamba FHG Adhesive never cures to a hard, brittle state. Should you have to remove a bowl simply cut away the adhesive with a sharp, lubricated blade or oscillating multi-tool. Use shims to slowly part the pieces. Be patient and you will save both the sink and the countertop.
  • When do you recommend plumbing be completed?
    We recommend you wait a full 24 hours prior to allowing the plumbing contractor to carry out his final drain connection. That being said, the drain assembly and faucet can be installed prior to hanging the sink or bowl.
  • Do I need a special caulk gun or dispenser for the Black Mamba FHG Adhesive?
    If you are hanging one or two sinks then a conventional caulk gun will suffice. However, due to the viscosity of the adhesive, if you are installing multiple sinks or bowls, the adhesive will “wear you out” in short order. We offer a 35 to 1 mechanical ratio dispenser that makes application of the Black Mamba FHG a breeze.
