Stone cladding, what is it ?

Reconstituted stone cladding is a man made product using crushed natural stone as the main bulk filler, lime is added to give strength along with additional mixers, fillers and silicone moisture repellents to give it superior waterproofing properties and colour uniformity. Moulds are used to replicate the stone batches and different faces are used of the same size stone tiles to avoid the replication of patterns giving much more flexibility without replication of patterns, of course inverting the tiles means that pattern distribution can be doubled.
The main advantages of using a reconstituted stone is that a greater control of colour can be achieved consistently over large areas which is not always possible using stone in its natural form. Also sizes and shapes can be managed much better allowing for a greater degree of layout styles during construction. Because the face is less 'granular' than hewn stone, it is more resilient to the elements and colour degradation. Also the consistency of the manufacturing process means additional purchases can be used with confidence on later property add-ons or extensions knowing that a full colour/style match can be achieved, this would be just about impossible with natural stone once the original stock has been used. Think of it as a recipe, each production run of reconstituted tiles is identecial with the next batch as every ingredient is carefully dispensed into the mixing machines prior to manufacture.

We have divided our products into two sections to avoid confusion, the ones shown below and the Klimex veneers ' Klimex Range of Quality Veneers '

It should become obvious that the external tiles can be used for both external and internal application but the internal only should not be used outside. In most cases internal tiles are more decorative than their external counterparts as the face of the tile is randomised, other reasons internal tiles should not be used outside is that during manufacture waterproofing additives were not added as this was an unnecessary requirement
