The KDM110 Keep-nut Drilling Machine from Chemical Concepts™, is a lightweight, precision tool for drilling panels and countertops. This machine will enable any operator to repeatedly and efficiently drill holes with the correct dimensions for use with the Keep-nut anchoring system*. Using an array of compatible bits, the machine can prepare holes in a variety of hard surfaces including granite, marble engineered stone, UHPC, porcelain, Dekton®, glass, and composites. The vacuum foot allows secure attachment to rough surfaces including unpolished granite and textured ceramics. This water-cooled, pneumatic machine requires only a single airline and a water feed to operate. Use with thin-wall core bits to drill faucet holes in record time without a CNC.
*Keep-Nut® is a press-in threaded insert that mechanically anchors to provide permanent threads in panels or countertops. The Keep-Nut insert is specifically developed to fasten ventilated façades, wall-coverings, décor, furniture, under-mount sinks, as well as a variety of other applications.
Chemical Concepts is a company that has been in the countertop fabrication and kitchen remodeling business for over 50 years. This year we are featuring several new products including our new Stonetac Activator, 6600 Rodmaster Quick-set Rodding Adhesive, 650UC Ultra Clear Epoxy, and the Counterplate Plus 12" bracket.
The Rodmaster 6600 Quick-set rodding compound is a toughened structural acrylic adhesive which sets up in 5-10 minutes and offers 5x the strength compared to polyester adhesives. This convenient cartridge based product is much faster to apply than traditional epoxies, saving time and labor, while providing superior protection for delicate surfaces.
The new Counterplate Plus 12" bracket provides ultimate support for bartop overhangs with no deflection even at high loads. This bracket offers the strength of 1/2" thick steel, without the weight, bulk, or cost. They are also much easier to install than 1/2" thick supports.
