Only 1-2MM Thick? How Thin Can A Stone Be?

Posted by MO LI on

Stone is a non-renewable resource. In recent years, people in the stone industry have been working hard to develop new building materials through new technologies and processes. There is a material with a texture that looks like a stone, but it is far less heavier than traditional stone. This material is soft and has a certain uneven texture on the surface. This type of product is collectively referred to as "ultra-thin stone."

How thin is ultra-thin stone?
People who work in construction industry know that the thickness of stone used in construction is generally between 10-18mm. Stone with its thickness less than 15mm is called ultra-thin stone.Have you ever seen stone with a thickness of 1-2 mm? This thickness is almost the same as that of wallpaper. It is also a kind of safe building material, with pure natural slate or quartz mica on the surface and glass fiber on the back.

This ultra-thin stone is a 100% natural slate veneer with a thickness of only 1~2mm and about 1.5kg per square meter. The backing uses glass fiber and glue as the bottom, making the hard stone bendable and deformable.
Surface texture of ultra-thin stone:

As you can see, it is no different from ordinary stone, retaining the natural texture of stone.

Advantages of ultra-thin stone:

It is thin, light, so it is easy to tailor and bend.

Ultra-thin stone also features good light transmittance!

The appearance of ultra-thin stone has overturned stone insiders' cognition of traditional stone!
It overcomes the problems that natural stone is fragile, difficult to transport and difficult to install, and greatly expands the use of natural stone.

How does ultra-thin stone perform in indoor and outdoor cases?
Ultra-thin stone can be used for walls, suspended ceilings, cabinets, furniture, lamps, hanging pictures and decorations:

Ultra-thin stone is the ultimate pursuit of stone for people!
It provides more miracles for the blending of design with nature!
