FLEXSTO – Flexible Stone Veneer
What is FLEXSTO made of?
FLEXSTO is made from naturally occurring slates and quartzite.
How is FLEXSTO made?
A thin veneer comes off from the stone slabs once the special adhesive is poured on top and fiber glass backing or fleece backing is pasted. Most of the work is done by hand. Only the ultra thin veneers are made on machines.
In what thicknesses is FLEXSTO available?
Fiber glass variety is 1.50 mm to 2.20 mm thick, while the fleece backed veneers are 0.50 mm to 0.80 mm thick. Ultra thin cloth backed veneers are >0.5mm.

- Never use POP (Plaster of Paris).
- Ensure a sharp blade is used to cut the veneers for those fine joints you want.
