Cornice adhesive

So my in-law is using cornice adhesive as an all-purpose filler. Patched up a 3 by 50 inch strip in a marble floor with this, patched up the walls around the house and a good number of holes left by screws in the ceramic tile shower unit. He mixed the powder with water based paint and is convinced itís going to be solid and long -standing. I donít know much about different plaster mixes but is he likely to run into any problems in the long run by doing this? The plaster he applied on the floor is not being sealed.

How 'bout you post a link to the actual produce for us to evaluate, Anthony. I'm not familiar with anything called "cornice adhesive."

Looks like a setting-type gypsum drywall finishing compound to me, Anthony, as they reference ASTM C475. The only application you mentioned that I think it useful for is the patching of holes in your gypsum drywall on the interior of the house.

And mixing it with paint I don't see recommended by the manufacturer at all.

Using it to fill large gaps in a marble floor is certainly not something I'd use the product for.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Thanks. Iím still struck by uncertainty. He has done the job so I suppose I wait until there is a problem with it and then take it out.

His reasoning with the paint is that itíll make it waterproof.

People do all kinds of things that are not specifically recommended by manufacturers. Some work well. Others not so much. Just have to wait to see how it survives the test of time.

Take a look at the creative things JBF members have done with tile industry products.

Just curious Anthony, this his house or yours?

Personally if I was ďpatchingĒ (aka short term hack) marble on a floor Iíd use clear West Systems 2 part epoxy. For walls with tile I would add flour or wood dust to get the shade you desire; it will also thicken the West Systems epoxy you can use putty knife to get it place.

And if it were to be more long term? The same epoxy but without additives?

It is a product sold and used in India. Without a doubt it is gypsum based. For a wall in a dry location....maybe. Without a doubt it will not last on a floor or in a shower. Just try scratching it. I have never been to India, but I have been all over South America. Nothing surprises me for the trades in....areas with less infrastructure. Just google image search "Indian electrical wiring".

Epoxy would be a permanent fix. You can also dye or pigment the epoxy any color in the world.

Thanks. I donít know much about epoxy fillers so Iím going to do a bit of research and see where it takes me. Looks like Iíll try find something suitable for using as a grout and filler in the shower. It would probably be safe to use that on the terrazzo floor that has some small holes in too.
