Backlit stone using exotic marble and onyx, polished and laminated to low-iron toughened glass.
‘Stratum Stone’ is a backlit stone product made from real marble or onyx that has been highly polished, then laminated to low-iron toughened glass to form a smooth composite panel. The glass provides an impervious layer protecting the stone against oils and other contaminents that would otherwise permanently stain and discolour the stone. This makes it straightforward to specify for illuminated features when only the genuine natural finish will do.
The stone panel and glass are laminated together using an epoxy interlayer. The interlayer can include a coloured filler, thereby altering the colour of the stone, especially when the panel is illuminated. This can help to enhance and complement an existing colour scheme in the environment where panels are displayed.
There are also a variety of illumination options, with LEDs producing dynamic RGBW light, or white LEDs with colour temperatures from 2,700°K to 5,500°K.

The single option is ideal for backlit walls that are viewed from just one side. The stone layer is protected by glass.
The double option provides a double-sided Stratum Stone wall solution, each side protected by a panel of glass. Both single and double options have a perfectly clean edge that is cut and polished via a water-jet after the stone and glass are laminated together.
For backlit stone worktops or applications where toughened glass is required, the glass and stone are cut to size before laminating together. In this instance it is necessary to bond the edges with 6mm wide, clear VHB (very high bond) tape.
