I am in the process of facing the bottom portion ( 12x24)of the support
columns on my patio.
I am going to use two 12x12 slate squares on each side.
The columns are made of cinderblock.
I need to find something that I can use to attach these slates to the
cinderblock and STAY put after some small adjustment.
I have tried permabond mortar as recommended by the guy at HD, (I know), but
the "tiles" just slip as soon as I let them go.
I thought there may be a different product or method that someone here could
recommend to really stick these slates to the cinderblock.
BTW I am in Arizona just east of Phoenix, in case heat is an issue in the
summer for a product.
Damn, I can't recall the name of the product, but recent TV ads show a guy
sticking a brick to a wall and walking away. His sticks, but the competition
falls. I don't recall if it was Liquid Nails or maybe Loctite. Staying in
place was the big selling point. Looks for some display ads in the stores.
Or watch more TV
I think I saw a commercial purporting the same thing for a loctite product,
but the guy sticks a hammer to the ceiling.
That might work, I will check into it.
Any other thoughts from anyone?
It would make more sense to explain what it is you are doing.
Indoor / outdoor
vertical wall surface / floor / roof
wall surface = how high?
thickness of slate being applied
Read up on doing ceramic tile and stone veneer.
Go to a tile/stone store
Be aware that these installs will usually require supporting, pinning,
and propping until the mortar sets.
Many stone veneers have some form of mechanical fastening - copper with
plaster; steel with screws and grout; why, even the Romans used iron
pins set in lead to hold the Coliseum together ( not bad for 2,000 years
ago) That polished granite face on that new multi story downtown was not
glued on or stuck on with cement.
Keep the whole world singing. . .

It seems to work fine..
I run a bead of the powergrab around the edge of the tile, I then butter the
rest of the slate and press it into place, hold for about 15 seconds and it
