publicat in: Bathroom // Publicata pe 27.03.2017

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.

In the above images, the shower's walls are cladded with flexible slate veneer. The lightweight panels are ideal for this projects because they do not put a strain on the walls and they are also completely waterproof. And last but definitely not least, slate is elegant, modern and exotic. There are two aspects that need to be taken into consideration when opting for slate veneer. First, make sure to match the color of the slate with that of the appliances used. And second, slate requires adequate lighting in order to highlight its special texture. That is why, the transparent slate sheets, pictured in the third photo, work so well.

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.
