With Stonesize lightweight marble panels, we can reduce the weight of conventional marble slabs almost three times. Stonesize marble panels only weigh 20kg/m2, which is even less than porcelain tiles intended for large format.
Thickness in lightweight marble vs. conventional marble
The thickness is considerably reduced from 2 cm for conventional marble to a minimum thickness of 5 mm, depending on the application and design requirements.
The Stonesize panel comprises different layers of ultra-light and ultra-resistant materials topped by a final skin of 100% natural marble.
Strength of lightweight marble vs. conventional marble
Stonesize marble panels are composed of:
- A thin layer of marble
- A sheet of an ultra-light and solid reinforcement material such as aluminum or fiberglass.
- A layer of hexagonal honeycomb made of aluminum, polymer, or an ultra-compact sheet depending on each application or requirement.
- Another layer of the same type of foil as in point 2.
As we can see in the video, the assembly forms a composite with a marble skin that offers extraordinary physical-mechanical properties concerning weight, size, and strength.
These are the different types of Stonesize panels we offer:
