For thousands of years, natural stone has been admired for its ability to add unmatched elegance to any design, and SlimLite™ Slate and Quartzite bring this beauty to applications in which the weight and thickness of natural stone may have traditionally limited these options. SlimLite™ Slate and Quartzite are revolutionary new surfacing products created by splitting raw material from actual slate and quartzite quarries into very thin layers of stone. This thin layer is bonded to a fiberglass backing, producing a strong, yet flexible piece of stone, making it an ideal facade for installation over existing surfaces and remodels.
