Design And Application Of Ultra-thin Stone

Granite, marble, small gravel, strip stone, and block stone are familiar to you, but there is a stone: thin as paper, bendable, transparent, and changeable in shape, which completely subverts your understanding of stone. It is ultra-thin stone. Do you believe in such ultra-thin stone? In this article, let’s talk about this new material.

Application of ultra-thin stone in indoor

01. Natural stone or artificial stone?

Ultra-thin stone uses natural layered stones such as slate and sandstone in nature and uses modern nanotechnology to peel them out. It completely retains the grain and texture of natural stone. It is the crystallization of nature’s uncanny workmanship and contemporary science and technology. Its natural texture is unmatched by imitation stone materials.

02. What are the classifications of ultra-thin stones

In addition to the natural layered stone such as shale and sandstone, contemporary nanotechnology can also extract the original marble. According to different stones, they can be mainly divided into slate ultra-thin stone, sandstone ultra-thin stone, and marble ultra-thin stone. The ultra-thin sandstone stone has a strong sense of particles, and the surface has a wavy texture, but it is easy to absorb dirt; The color of ultra-thin slate stone is purer, and its hardness is higher than that of sandstone; The surface texture of ultra-thin marble stone is exquisite, and the pattern is the most abundant.

03. Why can an ultra-thin stone be bent?

After the separation of natural stone by nanotechnology, the material itself has certain bending characteristics when the thickness is relatively low. At the same time, the separated materials are mostly bonded and fixed with soft glass fiber and glass fiber polyester, which further ensures the stability of the material during bending.

The bendable ultra-thin stone is not only more handy in the decoration of indoor curved surface structures. It can also break the original modeling system of stone and show a different effect.

Cotton linen is also one of the commonly used bonding and fixing materials for ultra-thin stones. The ultra-thin stones of the weaving series have a softer texture and a higher degree of bending and folding. Therefore, they are mostly used for furniture, lighting, digital products, and other finishes, adding a different aesthetic meaning to small-scale industrial products.

04. Why can ultra-thin stone transmit light?

The bonding and fixing materials such as glass fiber and polyester material are replaced with resin with light transmission performance, and then the ultra-thin stone is paved on the tempered glass or plexiglass to increase the strength. After polishing, the ultra-thin stone has the characteristics of light transmission. Under the flicker of light and shadow, the subtle changes of stone texture and color are more obvious, and the visual effect is excellent.

05. How thin is the ultra-thin stone?

Ultra-thin stone is mostly composed of stripped and layered natural stone and backplate with bonding and stabilizing effects. The existing nano layering technology can separate the stone into only 0.5mm layers. With the adhesive backing plate of various materials, the thinnest ultra-thin stone can be 1-2mm, and the weight per square meter can reach about 1.5kg.

06. Can ultra-thin stone be produced in China?

The manufacturing technology of ultra-thin stone comes from Germany. At present, most of the ultra-thin stones in China are agents or partners of foreign brands. Few manufacturers can independently produce ultra-thin stone in China. Therefore, ultra-thin stone has high added value.

07. What is the construction technology of ultra-thin stone?

Ultra-thin stone has very lightweight and does not need to adopt a more complex dry hanging process like traditional stone. The ordinary hanging and pasting process can meet the requirements. Ultra-thin stone will become very soft under the thermal action of warm air and can be easily competent in both plane and curved surfaces. Cutting is also very convenient, a small cutting machine can be easy. Only need to apply glue to the wall, wipe it evenly, and then wet paste it can be very firm.

It should be noted that generally, protective strips are pasted around a single ultra-thin stone in advance to prepare for the pointing between the two ultra-thin stones behind. After the joint is compacted and fixed again, the construction of the whole ultra-thin stone is completed, which is as convenient and simple as pasting wallpaper
