I would think that
?long term creep? would be a problem in a cemetary.

I have a client who is proposing
hanging a series of (approx wt 12 lb) granite tablets onto an HDPE 1/4" thick
sheet, which in turn is attached to a concrete backing. The problem is
that holes will be cut out of the sheet to allow future access into the spaces
behind the sheet. The project is an extension to an existing cemetary
columbarium, and the spaces are ashes urn cubicles.
I don't know this product yet, and
I am addressing the issue of long term creep/deformation in the screw/bolt
Does anyone have experience with
this stuff as a "structural" element.
