Product & Application Information

What is the flexible stone? It is a natural stone veneer material, which is manufactured with thin veneers (from 2 mm to 3 mm thick) of slate or sandstone (metamorphic rocks) so, each sheet will be different as every piece consists of a thin layer of real stone and no two stones are exactly the same. Natural stone has a thin layer of fiberglass or polyester resin composite stuck at the other side which gives the sheets their flexibility and strength while keeping the weight to a minimum of 1.5 kg/ m2. Flexible stone is also water proof once installed and effectively creates a tough moisture barrier, so it can be used in most wet locations such as showers. These materials hold up to most indoor/outdoor environments as well as extreme low freezing conditions. It is ideal for renovations thanks to its easy installation. This means you neither have to remove the existing tiles while remodelling, no have any debris to throw away. Architectural uses include building facades, interior walls, door skins, flooring, columns, shower walls and much more. It is an attractive addition to many decors due to the products of easy installation and the ability to apply the product in areas where stone or masonry would not have been considered previously . Although flexible stone is available in 14 colours in matt or glossfinish with a standard measure of 62 x 122 cm, some colours can reach 244 x 122 cm, facilitating this way its use in the manufacture of furniture.

Product & Application Information

How to use flexible stone? The application and flexible manipulation of the stone is easy, but we must give appropriate treatment according to its usefulness and location to be installed. The sheets can be cut or machined with tools often used in woodwork, although we recommend working with sharp tools or scissors or even a diamond cutter. Interior: If we are working on a wooden raw surface or a derivative product (chipboard, phenolic board, MDF ...) we use construction adhesive, if instead we work on non-porous substrates or other compositions such as lacquers, aluminium, melamine, plastic, water resistant applications etc. we recommend to use a polymer adhesive or contact adhesive. For a better finishive we recommend to apply a water based acrylic lacquer or solvent, to protect and give the piece a wet look or a repellent, if one wants to preserve the natural appearance of stone Exterior: For applications where the product is always outdoors we recommend to use polyurethane adhesives composed of two components appropiate for outside weather conditions. You should us some kind of protection on exterior, acrylic paints or water-repellent, depending on the desired look. For either type of application, we always recommend cleaning and degreasing both the blade and the surface on which it will be applied.
