LightWeight Stone

Lightweight stone is a type of natural stone combined with a base of other materials to meet the demand of various functions in the application. There are four popular methods to achieve the goal, including ceramic tiles, aluminum panel/ honeycomb, granite, and glass. 

With Aluminum Honeycomb

Aluminum Panel/ Honeycomb is one of the best materials, which makes the stone much lighter in weight, and more practical and cost-effective to use in a variety of applications.

Previously challenging spaces, such as naval industry, residential design, as well as elevators can now be decorated in luxury using lightweight natural stone. The lightweight stone is an ideal solution.


   a. Huge specifications available, measures 2900x 1450mm.

   b. Stronger, high-stress resistance.

   c. Lighter, it can reduce around 70% weight of the stone in the same dimension.

With Glass

In addition, this technology is a good choice if you need some transparent marble or onyx.

It can also be used to brighten darker spaces, such as bathrooms, by using backlighting. Placing lighting behind the lightweight natural stone will create an eye-catching effect that illuminates the natural beauty of the stone.

We will use glass as a basement in such a condition.

So, if you are looking for a way to add a touch of luxury to your home or business, consider using lightweight natural stone. It is sure to make a statement and provide a beautiful and unique look that will last for years to come.

With Ceramic Tiles

Lightweight stone with ceramic tiles as the base material is always used in flooring.

Four obvious advantages are as follows:

It is cheaper than solid marble relatively when we choose some luxury marble.

It is lighter than stone.

It is not fragile and easy to transport.

It is easy to be installed, just like ceramic tiles.

The disadvantage is that there is a limitation on the dimensions of ceramic tiles, the most economic size is 800*800mm. If we need a bigger size, we can choose to combine a small one together, or we have to use ceramic tiles in a bigger size, but the cost will be much higher.

Sinodec stone has a ready stock of such lightweight stones as well as magic patterns in regular size 800*800mm.

With Granite

When we need wall dry hanging marble, some customers will choose granite as the base plate because it is cheap, thick enough, hard, and easy to lock the pendant.

But same as ceramic tiles, if you want to save cost, you can only choose the size within 600 widths and 600 times length, because the regular cheap granite is usually this size.

If you want a bigger size, the cost will be much higher.
