Top 4 materials combined with marble to get a Lightweight one

Stone is popular for its unique texture, colors, and patterns.

However, it can be quite fragile and heavy, so people would like to get some lightweight ones but with the characteristics of natural stones.

So we keep developing some technology to solve this problem.

Advantages of lightweight marble:

  • The slabs are flexible and particularly resistant
  • easy installation as it’s lightweight and strong
  • lower the cost of some expensive materials but keep the texture of natural marble
  • to be more flexible and resistant
  • expand the application of stone

There are four popular methods to get lightweight marble. Today, I would like to share them with you in this blog.

With Ceramic Tiles

Ceramic tiles are the most popular choice for lightweight marble, especially for flooring in small sizes.

800*800mm is the common size on market, we may put two pieces together instead of using a bigger size in order to save cost.

We have some standard composite marble in ready stock, the general size is 600×600, 800×800, 600x1200mm, etc.

With Glass

The glass is used in the basement when lightweight and transparency are desired, especially when we need some luxury marble or onyx.

It is a good material to use for a backsplash because it is easy to clean and maintain.

The biggest advantage of a glass base is it’s transparent, which can make your project looks high-end and luxurious.

With Aluminum Honeycomb

In order to reduce weight and facilitate handling and installation, we choose aluminum honeycomb, especially for walling. The honeycomb structure keeps the same characteristic of lightness but has a different density.

a. Weight: it’s around 40% the weight of marble in the same thickness

b. Installation: save at least 50% time as it’s light and not fragile

c. Impact resistance:  60 times of marble

d. Specification: Available in extra huge panel size as it’s light

e. Application: suitable for any environment even wet areas

e. Customization: Any size is available upon request

With Granite

Granite is another economical material to combine with marble when we need the thicker one to be installed. The general width of the granite slab is 600mm, it’s better for us to choose a suitable specification to save cost.

All these materials have their own advantages and disadvantages, including function and cost. We can choose the most suitable one according to our project requirements.

The thickness is considerably reduced from 20mm to a minimum thickness of 5mm, depending on the exact application and design requirements.

Lightweight marble can save weight, be transparent, be solid, decrease fragile and save cost for luxury stone. It’s an ideal material for many applications.
