bonding corian to a shower curb

what would be the best way to bond corian to a shower curb that is covered in kerdi? I was thinking silicone, but was wondering if that is the best way to do it
thanks.............nicko

I'd use silicone or Kerdi-fix. Is the pitch already built into the curb?
Thanks Paul.
Yes the pitch is already built into the curb.
Thanks......nicko
My stone guys and Noble tech support say that silicon doesn't stick well to membranes. I agree with Paul, Kerdi-Fix is an awesome sealant/adhesive. But if you don't have access to it, do a light skim coat of thinset over the Kerdi, wait for it to dry and then silicone the Corian down.

Only do that if the pitch is built in, like you did :thumbup:
Thanks angus
My supplier can get Kerri fix but can't have it until Tuesday I can wait if I have to.
Do you think the thin set skim coat and silicone would be as good as the Kerri fix or at least a good alternative ?
I know silicone bonds to corian really good.
Thanks........nicko.
The Kerdi-Fix has a tenacious bond to damned near anything. Like Angus said, silicone may not bond to the Kerdi as well if not skimmed first.
What would any one think about two ss screws counter sunk into the corian?
They would be under the sliding door track.
Fill the hole with silicone then silicone over the screw head then the door track in a bed of silicone.

Uh no. Why? Not necessary. Stop over thinking it...

I've done the skim coat over the kerdi and silicone. Worked fine.

I layed out a bed on both the curb and bottom of the corian in a criss cross basket weave pattern and smoosh it down.
thanks tech dawg.
that's what I will do

For what it's worth, according to the Corian installation instructions silicone is the only material recommended for adhering Corian to another surface.
