This veneer sheet shows some slight discoloring in certain areas.

Texture Grade: 2
Since each stone is unique, some will have more texture than others. We grade Micra-Stone Veneer™ with a scale that ranges from 1 (smooth) to 5 (coarse).

Precision Cut Exotic Stone
Micra-Stone™ veneer is the thinnest and most flexible stone offered in the USA. Though it seems impossible, this is not a printed or faux material. Each veneer is made from real stone which has been precision milled from premium grade metamorphic rock harvested from quarries around the world. The synthetic fleece backer strengthens the stone and gives it unmatched flexibility.

Easy Application
Use scissors to cut Micra-Stone veneer slightly larger than the final size of the project panel. Do not use solvent based adhesive to bond Micra-Stone to a project surface. We highly recommend bonding this to the project panel with Titan DX™ contact cement. Keep in mind that this adhesive will only bond to porous surfaces. Apply Titan DX with a glue roller to the back of the veneer and to a project surface such as MDF, plywood, or particle board. When the adhesive becomes tacky, apply the stone to the project and use a rubber roller to "set" the bond and make it permanent. Excess veneer can be trimmed with a razor knife or the completed panel can be cut to size with a table saw or miter saw.

Optional Finishing
A water-based acrylic polyurethane or a floor "finish" designed for unpolished stone (available at most hardware stores in the tile and flooring aisle) can be applied to this veneer to protect the surface from scratches. The best results can be obtained with a semi-gloss stone finish. Alternately, the stone veneer can be left unfinished for an organic color and natural sheen. If left unfinished, some stones can scratch easily however these blemishes typically wipe off with a moist paper towel. Stone "sealers" and "wet look" finishes are not recommended as they can permanently darken Micra-Stone veneer. Always test the finish on a scrap piece of stone veneer before applying to your project.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How flexible is Micra-Stone veneer?
    I've had success wrapping the smooth stone veneers around a pencil. The heavy texture veneers will typically handle no more than a 3/8" radius.
  2. How much does each sheet weigh?
    The average sheet weighs approximately 14 oz.
  3. How do I cut the stone veneer?
    It sounds impossible but scissors will cleanly and easily cut Micra-Stone.
  4. Do you have samples available?
    Yes! We now have 8" x 10" samples in stock.
  5. Do you have a close-up picture showing a grade 3 texture?
    Click here to see a detailed picture of a grade 3 texture sample. Keep in mind that the texture will vary across the sheet. Some have a lot of high texture areas and some sheets have smaller areas of high texture. We grade each veneer based on the overall texture across the sheet.
  6. How are these sheets packaged?
    I put each veneer inside a 3" diameter card board tube and then box it up.
  7. Do I have to use Titan DX to apply the veneer?
    I've tested many different glues and found that most water-based adhesives work well but a premium water-based contact cement like Titan DX seems to be the strongest bond and it is definitely the easiest to apply. Do not use solvent based adhesive to bond Micra-Stone to a project surface.
  8. Is a backer veneer needed for the panel?
    Since Micra-Stone veneer does not expand and contract with changes in ambient humidty, no backer/balance veneer is needed.
  9. Do I have to sand the finished panel?
    No sanding is needed. The organic texture of Micra-Stone veneer provides a naturally "perfect" surface.
  10. Can Micra-Stone be cut with a laser?
    I have no data on this. One customer has reported there were no problems cutting with an 80-watt CO2 laser. I take no responsibility for this customer's feedback but please let me know your results if you try it.
  11. /product_images/uploaded_images/stone_veneer_panel.jpgCan I cut Micra-Stone veneer once it is applied to a substrate?
    A completed panel can be trimmed to size with a table saw, circular saw, or chop saw. Click here to see a picture.
