Thin stone and glass

The combination of thin stone and glass creates impressive possibilities especially in architecture and interior design. Marble, quartz, granite, onyx and conglomerates become part of the newly created space. In combination with light, thin stone and glass take on an additional dimension. The light transmission can be increased up to 35% depending on the stone and stone thickness.

Cosmic Black

Cosmic Black is a quartzite from Brazil. Characteristic is the different light transmission between the light and dark areas in combination with the blood red speckles in the stone.

Cosmic Black is suitable for interior applications with stone on or between glass as well as for facade solutions with stone between glass. The stone thickness ranges between 0.8 and 3.0 mm, depending on requirements. For exterior applications in laminated glass, a cut-back along the glass edges of approx. 3 mm is recommended. In insulating glass, the stone can be positioned towards the space between the panes.

For curved variants we work with a maximum stone thickness of 1 mm, depending on the radius.

If the stone is to be laminated on one side of the glass, various surface treatments are possible: polished, brushed, leathered, finely ground. Due to its hardness, which is characteristic of quartzite, the stone is perfectly suited for use with stone on glass.

Conclusion: An exceptional stone with a deep black for thin stones.

Nacarado Gold

Nacarado Gold, also known as Van Gogh, is an extremely hard quartz rock with a wide range of colors. The country of origin is Brazil.

The strongly changing texture has to be taken into account in the sampling, but it diminishes with decreasing stone thickness.

 

Nacarado Gold is suitable for interior applications with stone on or between glass as well as for facade solutions with stone between glass. The stone thickness varies between 0.8 and 3.0 mm, depending on the requirements. For exterior applications in laminated glass, a cut-back along the glass edges of approx. 3 mm is recommended. In insulating glass, the stone can be positioned towards the space between the panes.

 

For curved variants we work with a maximum stone thickness of 1 mm, depending on the radius. If the stone is to be laminated on one side of the glass, various surface treatments are possible: polished, brushed, leathered, finely ground.

By the way, Nacarado Gold is one of those stone veneers where, from a technical point of view, we can still speak of laminated safety glass when it comes to lamination between glass! Depending on the application, this is a decisive advantage over marble, where we always talk about laminated glass.

Conclusion: A great stone, which demands everything from us in terms of processing and its properties!

 

Golden Macauba

Golden Macaubas is a fine-grained, golden brown quartzite. Country of origin is Brazil. Blocks are cut both with and against the bearing.

In insulating glass, the stone can be positioned towards the space between the panes.

For curved variants we work with a maximum stone thickness of 1 mm, depending on the radius.

If the stone is to be laminated on one side of the glass, various surface treatments are possible: polished, brushed, leathered, finely ground.

Ice Flake is, by the way, after Nacarado Gold, the second tested stone that, when laminated between glass, achieves the values of laminated safety glass. This, as well as the fact that we are talking about a chemically resistant stone that does not absorb water or moisture, must be taken into account, especially for applications in the facade area.

Conclusion: An extraordinarily high light transmission combined with a great appearance and outstanding technical properties compared to marble offer many possibilities.

Other stones

Nature offers much more! Here we present you another small selection of stone veneers. Not only is the spectrum of color nuances, veins and structures within the stone veneers shown so far infinitely varied and each veneer unique. Nature also offers countless other stones in completely different materials. For technical reasons, we concentrate on marble, quartzite, granite and conglomerate, and also on onyx if desired.

Within these groups we can offer you basically about 1000 different stones. Some of them we have already processed once, others we are happy to include in our test program upon your request.
