Quick & easy to the perfect stone experience

With Slate-Lite, you are choosing a quality product from the original manufacturer that has been thoroughly tested in all its components - both in our own internal test laboratory and by external testing institutes.

Thanks to the unique properties of Slate-Lite, such as the low overall thickness of just a few millimetres and the low weight, our stone veneers can also be processed easily and conveniently - regardless of being a professional or the ambitious amateur craftsman.

Targeted advice for a specific area of application.


Areas of application

Slate-Lite is suitable for almost all applications, including:

  • Interior walls
  • Exterior walls
  • Wet areas (bath, shower, sauna, pool)
  • Floors, terraces
  • Kitchen, backsplash
  • Facades, roofs
  • Furniture construction
  • Fireplaces

Substrates & pre-treatment

No special preparation of the substrate is necessary to install Slate-Lite.

Almost any material is suitable as a substrate, including concrete, sheetrock, wood, metal, tile, plaster, etc.
The substrate only needs to be smooth, dust-free, clean and dry.

No special preparation is necessary for "stable" substrates.
Crumbling substrates such as old, flaking plaster or wallpaper that is already peeling off must be pretreated with a primer to ensure a permanent bond between the adhesive and the wall.
Excessive unevenness in the substrate must either be treated with a primer or sanded down.

Cutting Slate-Lite to size

If you need a special format for your Slate-Lite sheet, you can either order it directly in your desired dimensions, or simply cut it yourself:

Slate-Lite can be cut with all standard wood and stone working tools. To do this, use a (skill-) circular-saw or a multitool and a saw blade with fine teeth.

To get a clean result, you should cut the stone veneer sheet from the back. A guide rail can be helpful.

Drill Slate-Lite

The stone surface of Slate-Lite can be drilled with any standard (stone, wood or metall) drill.
Nailing and screwing is also possible without any problems.

Gluing Slate-Lite

Gluing Slate-Lite is very simple: you can either apply the adhesive directly to the processing surface or to the back of the stone sheet.

As a rule, the adhesive is applied over the entire surface with a B3 trowel.
Then position the stone sheet and press on firmly with a pressure roller: Done!

For the exact application of the respective adhesive, please refer to the respective data sheet of the adhesive product.

Press Slate-Lite

Slate-Lite can be pressed onto a wide range of materials. These can be MDF, chipboard, plywood, multiplex, HDF or AluDibond, among others.

We recommend the use of a backing paper of approx. 120 g/m² or another laminate (HPL) to avoid cupping due to the surface tension of the stone layer.

For detailed information on adhesive products, pressure settings and pressing times, please refer to our pressing instructions.

Protect Slate-Lite

Depending on where it is applied, you can use Slate-Lite without additional protection of the surface, for example in interiors with low exposure.

For applications in areas with high loads, such as the kitchen or in showers and bathrooms, we recommend the use of an additional impregnation or sealant.
This is usually applied to the stone surface with a foam roller in a criss-cross pattern; this can be done before or after installation.

For detailed instructions on the protective products, please refer to the respective data sheets and recommendations in our theme worlds.

Cleaning Slate-Lite

Slate-Lite can be cleaned with all commercially available, non-caustic household cleaners.

In most cases, clear water and a lint-free cloth or brush are sufficient.

In outdoor areas, cleaning with a high-pressure cleaner is also possible; please only observe the recommended distance of the device manufacturer when using it.


Fields of application and substrates

UltraThin eco+ is suitable for interior walls and perfect for furniture construction. This product line is also ideal for creative DIY or fashion applications.
Almost any material is suitable as a substrate, including concrete, sheetrock, wood, metal, tiles, plaster, etc.
The substrate only needs to be smooth, dust-free, clean and dry.

UltraThin Translucent is also translucent and can be used for backlit objects. Almost any light source can be used.

For better stability and light distribution, UltraThin Translucent can be glued to glass or acrylic. Depending on the span width, we recommend an acrylic thickness of 4 mm for standard formats 122x61cm and 8 mm for large formats 240x120cm.

When using fluorescent tubes and LED strips, acrylic panels with a frosted glass colouring have proved particularly effective, as these distribute the light effectively. When using LED panels, UltraThin Translucent can usually be applied directly, as the light distribution is already ideally regulated.

Cutting UltraThin eco+

UltraThin eco+ can be easily processed with scissors or a cutter knife.

Laser cuts are also possible without any problems.

Gluing UltraThin eco+

UltraThin eco+ can be glued with white glue, glass fibre wallpaper adhesives, spray adhesives or contact adhesives.
We recommend using UltraThin eco+ contact adhesive.

Depending on the type of adhesive, apply adhesive to the sheet, the wall or both. With contact adhesives, the sheet must be placed in the final position immediately, as no subsequent changes are possible. With other types of adhesive, corrections can be made.
As a rule, the sheet is fully loadable after 48 hours.

UltraThin eco+ grouting

Like all other Slate-Lite product lines, UltraThin eco+ can be easily pressed onto other substrates.
These can be MDF, chipboard, plywood, multiplex, HDF or AluDibond, among others.

We recommend using a backing paper of approx. 120 g/m² or another laminate (HPL) to avoid cupping due to the surface tension of the stone layer.
For detailed information on adhesive products, pressure settings and pressing times, please refer to our pressing instructions.

Protect UltraThin eco+

Depending on the place of installation, you can process UltraThin eco+ without additional protection of the surface, for example in interior rooms with low load.

Should you wish to apply a protective product, it is usually applied to the stone surface with a foam roller in a criss-cross pattern; this can be done before or after installation.

For detailed instructions on the protective products, please refer to the respective data sheets and recommendations in our theme worlds.

Cleaning UltraThin eco+

UltraThin eco+ can be cleaned with all commercially available, non-caustic household cleaners.

In most cases, even clear water and a lint-free cloth or a gentle brush will suffice.


Areas of application

Translucent is suitable for almost all applications, including:

  • Backlit objects
  • Interior walls
  • Exterior walls
  • Wet areas (bath, shower, sauna, pool)
  • Kitchen
  • Facades, roofs
  • Furniture construction
  • Fireplaces

Substrate and finishes

Translucent is the classic translucent product line with a transparent fibreglass back, a bendable radius of approx. 10 cm and a total thickness of approx. 1.5 mm.
For better stability and light distribution, Translucent can be glued to glass or acrylic. Depending on the span width, we recommend an acrylic glass thickness of 4 mm for standard formats 122x61cm and 8 mm for large formats 240x120cm.
When using fluorescent tubes and LED strips, acrylic panels with a frosted glass colouring have proved particularly effective, as these distribute the light effectively.

Stoneboards are an extra stable and thicker version of the Translucent line with fibreglass backing.
The higher overall thickness means that there is no need for an additional acrylic panel as a support, and even the large format of 240 x 120 cm can be months with a single person.

The right light source

In principle, any light source behind the stone leaf is possible.

The simplest method for uniform illumination is an LED panel with high light output. However, you can also use fluorescent tubes, incandescent bulbs or LED strips; in this case, a frosted glass pane between the light source and the Translucent decor helps to distribute the light better. A sufficient distance between the light source and the Translucent also ensures optimal light diffusion.

Depending on whether you use warm, cold or coloured RGB light, you can create different lighting moods.

Cut Translucent

If you need a special format for your Translucent sheet, you can either order it directly from us with your desired dimensions, or simply cut it yourself:

Translucent can be resized with all standard wood and stone working tools. To do this, use a (hand) circular saw or a multitool and a saw blade with medium teeth.

To get a clean result, you should cut the stone veneer sheet from the back. A guide rail can be helpful.

Gluing Translucent

Translucent stone veneers are processed with our transparent special adhesive Translucent Crystal Clear.

The adhesive is simply applied to the mounting surface or the back of the stone sheet with a smoothing trowel.
Make sure that there are no air bubbles in the adhesive, otherwise they may be visible later.

Protect Translucent

Depending on the place of installation, you should also use an impregnation or sealant for the 100% natural stone surface from our range.

The protective product is applied to the stone surface either before or after gluing the stone sheets.

No protective product is necessary at all for installation locations with low stress.

Cleaning Translucent

Translucent can be cleaned with all commercially available, non-corrosive household cleaners.

In most cases, clear water and a lint-free cloth or brush are sufficient.

In outdoor areas, cleaning with a high-pressure cleaner is also possible; please only observe the recommended distance of the device manufacturer when using it.

All decors and stone types in our Slate-Lite product line are suitable for use in the fireplace area, both for masonry fireplaces or as a back wall for Swedish stoves and free-standing fireplaces.

Our Artdecors Lite are also suitable for this application area.

Substrates and pre-treatment

No special preparation of the substrate is necessary.
Almost any material is suitable as a substrate, including concrete, plasterboard, wood, metal, tiles, plaster, etc.
The substrate only needs to be smooth, dust-free, clean and dry.

Cutting to size and drilling connections

You do not need any special tools to cut Slate-Lite to your desired dimensions, any standard (hand) circular saw or multitool can be used for this.

Simply cut the stone sheet from the back with a wooden or plastic saw blade with medium teeth.

The stone surface of Slate-Lite can be drilled through with any standard (stone) drill.

Heat resistance and fire classes

Slate-Lite is heat resistant up to 120°C and has achieved EU class Cfl-s1 (according to EN 13501-01 for floor coverings) or B1 (according to DIN 4102).

Slate-Lite is also available in a special composition as EU class Cs3d0.
For further questions on this, please contact our sales department.

Gluing at high temperatures

Our standard Slate-Lite adhesives are temperature resistant up to 90°C, which is sufficient for most applications around the fireplace.
For special applications with higher temperature requirements, please contact our sales department.

Gluing Slate-Lite is very simple: you can either apply the adhesive directly to the processing surface, or to the back of the stone sheet.
Apply our adhesive over the entire surface with a B3 trowel.
Then position the stone sheet and press on firmly with a pressure roller: Done!

For the exact application of the respective adhesive, please refer to the respective data sheet of the adhesive product.

The right protection

For interior wall installations, you can either apply Slate-Lite without an additional protective product or use one of our customised impregnations for the stone surface.

For walls with low to medium loads, we recommend our Slate-Lite Special Impregnator or Slate-Lite Special Protection.

Cleaning Slate-Lite

Slate-Lite can be cleaned with all standard, non-caustic household cleaners.

In most cases, even clear water and a lint-free cloth or brush will do.


Product lines and stone types

Our translucent product lines Translucent, Stoneboard Translucent and UltraThin Translucent allow you to backlight objects and wall areas with a light source behind the stone sheet.

Translucent is the classic translucent product line with a transparent fibreglass back, a bendable radius of approx. 10 cm and a total thickness of approx. 1.5 mm.

UltraThin Translucent has a cotton mat as a base instead of the fibreglass backing and is three-dimensionally deformable to some extent.
Thanks to the low overall thickness of less than 1 mm, UltraThin Translucent can even be cut with scissors or a cutter knife.

Stoneboards are an extra stable and thicker version of the Translucent line with fibreglass backing.

Substrates and backing material

Translucent is the classic translucent product line with a transparent fibreglass back, a bendable radius of approx. 10 cm and a total thickness of approx. 1.5 mm.
For better stability and light distribution, Translucent can be glued to glass or acrylic. Depending on the span width, we recommend an acrylic glass thickness of 4 mm for standard formats 122x61cm and 8 mm for large formats 240x120cm.
When using fluorescent tubes and LED strips, acrylic panels with a frosted glass colouring have proved particularly effective, as these distribute the light effectively.

Stoneboards are an extra stable and thicker version of the Translucent line with fibreglass backing.
The higher overall thickness means that there is no need for an additional acrylic panel as a support, and even the large format of 240 x 120 cm can be months with a single person.

The right light source

In principle, any light source behind the stone leaf is possible.

The simplest method for uniform illumination is an LED panel with high light output. However, you can also use fluorescent tubes, incandescent bulbs or LED strips; in this case, a frosted glass pane between the light source and the Translucent decor helps to distribute the light better. A sufficient distance between the light source and the Translucent also ensures optimal light diffusion.

Depending on whether you use warm, cold or coloured RGB light, you can create different lighting moods.

Cutting to size and drilling connections

You do not need any special tools to cut Translucent to your desired dimensions, any standard (hand) circular saw or multitool can be used for this.

Simply cut the stone sheet from the back with a wooden or plastic saw blade with medium teeth.

The stone surface of Translucent can be drilled through with any standard (stone) drill.

UltraThin Translucent can even be cut with scissors or a cutter knife.

Gluing Translucent

The Translucent stone veneers are processed with our transparent special adhesive Translucent Crystal Clear.

The adhesive is simply applied to the mounting surface or the back of the stone sheet with a smoothing trowel.
Make sure that there are no air bubbles in the adhesive, otherwise they may be visible later.

The right protection

Depending on the place of installation, you should additionally use an impregnation or sealing product for the 100% natural stone surface from our range.

The protective product is applied to the stone surface either before or after the stone leaves are bonded.

No protective product at all is necessary for installation locations with low stress.

Cleaning Translucent

Translucent can be cleaned with all commercially available, non-caustic household cleaners.

In most cases, even clear water and a lint-free cloth or brush will do.
