Technical Data for Korlux™ Flexible Stone Veneer™

E-mail Print


Standard Sheet:

Nominal dimensions 4' x 8', thickness 0.035"

Wide Sheet:

Nominal dimensions 5' x 12', thickness 0.035"

Custom Sheet:

Available 3', 4' and 5' wide by 8', 10' and 12' long by .035", .050" and .090" thick by special order.


Approx 6.5 lbs per 4' x 8' sheet @ 0.035 thickness.

Storage and Handling:

Korlux™ laminate sheets should be stored face-up in a cool, dry area and in a completely supported flat position. Do not store on edge or coiled. Avoid bending and kinking that will crease the sheet. For best results, fabricate at room temperature.

Special Conditions:

Do not expose to direct flame.
Do not expose to continuous ambient temperatures in excess of 150°F or allow brief contact with objects hotter than 365°F.
Do not use where finished product will be exposed to direct sunlight or to extended periods of bright, indirect sunlight.


Korlux uses a unique priming system that allows fabrication with all three most common adheasives, contact cement, PVA and EVA.

* Korlux™ is rated for applications with continuous ambient temperatures up to 150°F. Korlux™ can withstand direct contact conditions up to 365°F; however some common adhesives may not withstand this extreme temperature. BES recommends a maximum temperature of 250°F for any objects that come into contact with the Korlux™ surface.
