For thousands of years, natural stone has been admired for its ability to add unmatched elegance to any design, and Daltile’s 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.
SlimLite™ Slate and Quartzite add to the list of several new products featuring the SlimLite name. SlimLite products are designed with easy handling, transportation and installation in mind, delivering the classic elegance of tile and stone in a lighter, more sustainable format. Because of their slim structure, the design opportunities with SlimLite products are virtually limitless.
SlimLite™ products are at least 30% thinner and lighter than the standard product, lowering transportation emissions and costs, as well as producing less waste due to less packaging, without forgoing the beauty of high-quality tile and stone.
