Flexible slate also comes in translucent colours such as Copper, Indian Autumn, Black Line, Golden and Multi-coloured. Aside from its impressive flexibility, durability and natural beauty, flexible slate veneer is also hypoallergenic, because it repels bacteria. It's also waterproof (absorbing less than 0,4% of water), can easily withstand freeze-thaw cycles, it doesn't stain when it comes in contact with acid liquids, grease, alcohol or cleaning solutions, if sealed and properly maintained. Due to its 1 to 2 mm thickness, SKIN flexible slate veneer can be easily installed on almost any surface.

Bathroom walls cladded with SKIN
Through a simple process and using a special adhesive, flexible slate can even be installed over ceramic tiles, but only after applying a levelling layer. You can see a very good example in photo no. 4. It's very important to seal it, which is the process of closing the pores of the stone. We recommend the LTP Mattstone sealant, which, from our experience, is a very efficient product.
