Re: Re: Stabilizing veined quartz slab?

If you have used oil in the cutting, you will want to clean it up as much as possible. You would want to use a fairly nonviscous epoxy (so it will fill the voids more easily - thinner). Placing the slab in a vacuum can also help increase the penetration of the cement into the stone.
