What is Lepto Slate
Lepto Slate is an appealing ultra-thin flexible slate surface. The surface is 100% natural slate surface. With our state-of-the-art technology, we are able to separate the slate surface and reinforce it with fiberglass and bond it together with polyester resin.
Lepto Slate can be used as protective and decorative panels covering interior and exterior walls and surfaces.
Its flexibility also allows you to apply at areas where heavy and thick stone cannot be done in the past.

Colors of Lepto Slate
1.Installation of Lepto Slate can be done using most of the basic tools used to install tiles.
2. Preparation of the area to be covered and the layout of the Lepto Slate sheets is the same as for natural stone or tile.
3. Cutting straight lines and curves is best done using long-nosed tin snips. Stone Art can also be cut with a metal shear, wet saw, or table saw with a carbide blade.
4. It is best to pre-seal Lepto Slate sheets prior to installation. This protects and seals the face from adhesives and grout during installation and handling. Stone panels can be sealed with the same sealers used for slate, stone tiles, and wood.
5. All adhesives should be tested prior to any installation including consideration of moisture and temperature in the planned environment. If the application is outdoors, consideration of thermal expansion needs to be taken into account. Since Stone Art is a veneer it must expand and contract with the substrate or delamination may occur.
