Stone veneer


Stone veneer

Stone veneer consists of a chipped layer of natural stone and a substrate made of polyester with glass fibre. This ensures sturdiness, shape stability and flexibility.
The light weight and simple processing of our stone veneer offer applications which were previously only possible with arduous and expensive measures using natural stone. Given the unique character of this natural product, colour and structure vary from piece to piece, lending the material its natural charm - every stone is a one-off!

Our stone veneer offers a variety of advantages:

  • Stone veneer is light in weight. It is therefore easy to transport and handle.
  • Good stability is achieved through the penetration of polyester into the material.
  • The range of possible surface impregnations makes stone veneer ideal for numerous applications.
  • It is easy to cut, saw and drill. DIY tools are usually sufficient.
  • Adhesive systems are available for many applications.
  • Upon request, some types can be supplied in large format up to 250 x105 cm.

Technische Details:

  • The material thickness of stone veneer is approx. 1.2 to 1.4 mm. It consists of approx. 0.4 mm of natural stone on the surface and approx. 0.80 mm of polyester with fibreglass.
  • Its weight per m2 is approx. 1.5 kg.
  • The standard format is 1220 x 610 mm, or piece sizes thereof, such as 60 x 30 cm.
  • Water absorption on the unsealed surface is +2.50%.
  • Stone veneer is resistant to frost.
  • It can be easily handled using stone or wood working tools.
  • As with practically every natural stone, surface impregnation is recommended.
  • It should be cleaned using the standard products for natural stone - please note that no acidic or strong degreasing products should be used.
  • Dimensional tolerances are +/- 3 mm in length and width, as well as right angles – nevertheless, these limits are not generally utilised.
