Synthetic stones are agglomerates from natural stones, which are bound with cement or resin. These synthetic stones enjoy growing popularity, as the range of designs due to optical versatility in form and colour appears to be endless. This high quality material excels as a rule through high levels of durability. A few of these materials have pronounced expansion, so that long term exposure to moisture can lead to so-called “curling“. As a rule they can be laid with a highly polymer modified thin-bed adhesive with rapid crystalline water binding technology. A few of these materials, especially those with high serpentinite components can “curl“, which can only be prevented by installing with a reaction resin adhesive. Our technical department is available for individual advice.
