I also had the opportunity to use the Zalman blue sinks and found that the adhesion was far less than the Enzotech sinks, with the same surface preperation.

I didn't use any heat, though I agree with Jody that it may help with the adhesion: the adhesives used in tapes sometimes can be activated with heat, thus increasing the adhesion.
Cool.... I've checked all of the other hardware stores in the area and have yet to find any. I'll have to figure out if there's a rona here in moncton and check them out.
