Reading all postings on this subject, it seems, that your best choice is
to use mechanical anchoring systems. Since you have a thin slab, this
system is unique in any way. I think, we can offer this system , which
is a special, small, undercut type insert suitable for thin cladding,
and available in carbon and stainless steel. Please call us at
416-631-9400 or e-mail your phone number and I'll cal you.
