Artstone is a synthetic material that resembles natural stone, wood, brick, or concrete in its appearance and texture. The panels consist of 20% fiberglass, 70% ecological resin (isophtalic, low in stress, 1st class polyester) and 10% natural stone dust and are prepared with special colouring techniques.
The material is more practical to install than its natural counterpart, only screws and dowels are needed, and the materialcan be cut to size. It eliminates the need for painting and insulation.
Artstone panels are suitable for exterior use due to their strength against acidic environments, sudden changes of temperature and high temperature endurance. In addition, the material is water- and UV-resistant.
