4 Tips for using SKIN flexible slate
Since the ‘80’s we have a new trend in interior design: the flexible slate, an innovative product that transforms the perception on natural stone. What was until then considered a raw, unpolished and not malleable natural material, turned into a definition of flexibility. As a result, SKIN flexible slate becomes the ideal solution for curved, atypical surfaces.
What is the flexible SKIN slate?
This is a unique product on the Romanian market, produced from the most amazing slate. A revolutionary method allows the production of multiple layers of natural stone from 5 tonnes block. The fiber substrate is applied to the back of the SKIN flexible slate, then applied in liquid shape over the slate block, which allows sheets to peel manually.
The result is a natural stone sheet, 2 cm thickness and 1.5 kg/sqm weight, thus reducing both transport costs and depletion of natural stone resources. SKIN flexible slate sheets can be installed on virtually any surface, such as: wood, MDF, particleboard, concrete and ceramics. Forget everything you tought you knew about natural stone and discover the new revolutionary SKIN range.
1. "Natural Stone Wallpaper"
SKIN flexible slate is the ideal material for fast cladding your home. Similar to a wallpaper sheet, but with an area of 100% natural stone, flexible slate will convey personality into your space.

A simple process and a special adhesive, the flexible slate can be installed on any surface, even for bathroom / kitchen ceramic tiles, but not before applying a leveling layer. And because we are talking about natural stone, it naturally requires sealing, i.e. closing pores and we recommend using LTP Mattstone for this.
