Natural Stone Veneer

Cosmic Grey

Eco-Core® Natural Stone-Veneer is a natural stone surface obtained from quarries around the world. These light, flexible and ultra-thin sheets of natural stone (slate and quartzite) are split from real slate from various geographical locations resulting in different vibrant colours.

The raw split surface of the slate and the interchanging colours of each stone layer are absolutely unique and a stimulation for the senses. Natural slate has a content of minerals and metal oxidants which are not visible underneath the surface. Colour, surface variations and fractures caused by pressure are quite normal and do not constitute a fault.

Some quarries contain a high degree of quartz combined with the slate bedrock. Quartzite is derived from soft rock from various quarries. With different quarries having this quartz content with layers of silicate there are different colour hues as seen in the Quartzite products, all with a natural glimmer and shine. It requires a high degree of skill and additional "hands-on" labor to split. The natural structure of the Quartzite slate also gives it a rougher surface than slate.


The Eco-Core® Natural Stone-Veneer range is as natural as nature created millions of years ago. Nothing is added to any of the texture, coloration and pigmentations. This is why every piece is different in stratus, three dimensional accentuation and feel, graining and variances of colour hues. “Sequencing” or matching any two pieces cannot be expected as there is no duplication of slate. Each piece has its own natural and individual beauty.

Eco-Core® Natural Stone-Veneer is formaldehyde-free.

How Does The Slate Become Eco-Core Natural Stone-Veneer?

The slate is split into very thin layers while applying a glass fiber reinforced polyester resin (GRP) for a strong bond producing the backing for the Stone-Veneer® sheets. Due to the high degree of adhesion accomplished between the slate and the GRP, the product now becomes stable and somewhat flexible.
 
What is GRP Backing and What Adhesives Do They Use?

· GRP (Glass fiber Reinforced Polyester resin) is the standard backing for all Slate and Quartzite products. It is durable and recommended for exterior as well as interior use.

Polyester back (GRP) can be adhered by some standard tile and polyurethane adhesives. You must follow the glue manufacturer's instructions as well as test the adhesive on a small area first to determine suitability before proceeding with the full installation.

More information is available on the installation guide found on the downloads tab.
