Tips for installation:
Installation is as important as choosing the stone best suited to your decoration project
Flexible slate is a material easy to handle and easy to transport
It will not need special tools for installation
For binding the slate we recommend a flexible adhesive such as Soudal Fix All
For a perfect binding, the surface should be entirely covered with adhesive
For applying the adhesive, use a trowel with teeth or a putty knife
Weber Color Comfort grout joints is available in 30 shades and should be applied after installation
For a perfect decoration project we recommend hiring an expert in natural stone installation
Tips for SKIN Flexible Slate aftercare
The surface of SKIN Flexible Slate is as hard and durable as any standard slate, yet for an extended lifetime you should keep in mind 3 steps: cleaning, sealing and aftercare
We only recommend using aftercare products designed for natural stone
Natural stone should be cleaned before and after installation; the thorough the cleaning before installation, the better the action of the waterproofing agent
We recommend LTP Grimex, available in our product range
Waterproofing is essential for maintaining the original look and beauty of natural stone, plus an extended lifetime. Waterproofing closes the micro pores of natural stone by creating a barrier against water and thus preventing the easy staining
You can apply 2 or 3 coats of LTP Mattstone H20 for waterproofing, an eco-friendly solution based on water that will not influence the surface look
You can also use LTP Glaze Protector for a “fresh clean look”
Use LTP Grimex for cleaning after installation and LTP Waxwash for daily cleaning
For stubborn stains, use LTP Power Stripper and for rust stains use LTP Grout Stain Remover
SKIN flexible slate is a versatile material that can borrow many geometrical shapes, conveying into your decoration project such a special elegance and unique touch.
