Slate-Lite is a stone veneer with a real stone surface and flexible cotton-based or fiberglass backing. This state-of-the-art method makes it possible to attain many very thin slate slabs from some of the world’s most beautiful slate blocks. Each sheet is one-of-a-kind, preserving the natural beauty of a regular slate slab. You can use it for your furniture, walls, or even floor covering for breathtaking light effects. Most decors can be produced as translucent material. A light source behind the sheet will create a unique pattern with incredible light effects. The material is extremely robust and therefore can be used as a wall covering inside and outside, in wet areas or as a covering in almost all areas of industrial processing.
