A flexible stone is created artificially, however, in comparison with other attempts to imitate natural material, is the most successful of them. Such material from sandstone is produced, while a flexible stone is a cut of sandstone, which is connected to the textile basis of the polymer.
The advantages of the material
A flexible stone combines the qualitative characteristics of natural stone, as well as the main advantages created using the latest technologies. The main advantage of the material is environmental safety, since it does not distinguish any harmful substances that could provoke allergies and other diseases. In addition, it has good light -proper quality. Thus, a variety of design solutions can be embodied if you place a small lamp under a flexible stone. Also, the material is durable and retains all the qualitative characteristics and excellent appearance for 35 years and even longer. A significant plus is also fire safety and resistance to abrasion of flexible stone. It withstands a temperature from -30 to +650 degrees, does not ignite and does not burn. In addition, the material has light weight. A square meter of material weighs only 5 kg, which greatly simplifies the process of transportation and material consumption. It will not be difficult and care for it, as well as the installation process. It is installed like wallpaper by gluing the walls.
Before gluing flexible stone, the surface of the walls should be leveled with plaster or installed sheets of drywall. It is worth noting that such a material requires the use of fairly strong glue, so it is better to use glue for tiles. Further, the installation process depends on the variety of flexible stone. If the material is used in the form of tiles, it is necessary to first lay out the tile to determine the overall picture and design. If we are talking about flexible stone in the form of wallpaper, then such preparatory work is not carried out.
After preparing the walls on their surface, apply glue and attach tiles or wallpaper, and then flatten. Suts that can be eliminated with the help of a brush moistened in water, or stained with water -based paint after drying after drying out. It all depends on the desired result. After gluing flexible stone, it is also necessary to use a protective coating that can be protective varnish or special impregnation.
