R&D GmbH is founded in Germany by Gernot Ehrlich. The company philosophy is to improve and sell Slate-Lite all over the world.
The stones "Falling Leaves" and "Argento" have both reached PEI II (see table below). Together both stones represent the products made of Myca and Slate.
Abrasion resistance is the capacity of the glazed surface to resist the wear caused by foot traffic or the abrasion caused by mechanical equipment like lift trucks, etc. The wear action is strictly linked to the mechanical agent (rubber sole, leather sol, etc.), the material carried on to the surface (water, sand, mud, etc.) and classified in five categories depending on the areas they are used in:
Tiles for areas with especially intense traffic.
Slate-Lite is an extra thin material consisting of a stabilizing backing and a top layer of natural stone. To manufacture the Slate-Lite only the most impressive and outstanding blocks of slates & mycas are used. The maximum sizes of the blocks are 3m in length, 1,5m width and hight of 0,7m. A single block may have a weight up to 5 tons.
Our unique processing technique enables us to gain up to 300 sheets of Slate-Lite out of a 5cm thick block of natural stone. This procedure is not only effective, it gives us a chance to save resources, so that we take our part in a more eco-friendly world. Additional, due to the light weight of Slate-Lite, which is approx. 1,5kg per m², a lot of energy used for transportation can be saved. All ingredients used in our products are free of any harmful substances.
That's why we take pride in the words:
We offer a green and eco-friendly product!
This eco-friendly orientation takes place in each step from the natural stone block to your final project. Choosing the right blocks, preparing the blocks for the manufacturing process, applying the backing the right way, doing the quality control and sorting the material so it is ready for transportation to places all over the world is the long way our product has to travel and we want to make sure to produce the highest quality possible, by taking care of our environment.
To process our EcoStone products the only thing you need is a carpet knife.
The way of applying material depends on your project. For Translucent products we recommend MS Clear, which you trowel with a spatula. To reach the best results please make sure to avoid bubbles etc. between the surface and the product. You can apply it on glass, plexi or almost any other transparent material.For Slate-Lite products we recommend Soudal HT, Soudal 240FC (grey & black), Fix All Floor & Wall (White). The best result will be achieved if you make a full surface application of the glue. If glue accidentally gets on the sheet, don't worry, you can simply remove it with the Special Cleaner.
For EcoStone we offer you the EasyGlue, which is a contact spray glue. Depending on your project you can also use wood adhesive or any other contact glue.Fugues can be filled with any natural stone grout.For edging you can put the sheets tile on tile or use one of our edging systems.Most important: Have fun with your project. The result will convince you.
