How long time does it take to make KABE?
Due to the products’ required drying time you should set aside at least three days for the process. How long it takes an individual to do the different processes depends on experience and technique.
Where can KABE Stone be applied?
KABE Stone can be used on almost all surfaces outside wet zones. KABE Stone is ideal for application on floors, furniture and walls exposed to extraordinary wear. You can upcycle old furniture or build a new furniture based on your desired measurements. KABE Stone is also ideal for kitchen countertops and the wall behind a stove.
Which surfaces can KABE Stone be applied on?
KABE stone can be applied on most surfaces outside wet zones, as long as the surface is stable, even, dry and free of dust, oil or loose materials.
What if I want to apply KABE Stone on tiles, planks or other uneven or unstable surfaces?
As KABE Stone is applied in very thin layers of approximately 0.5mm, it cannot be used for leveling. Therefore, the surface must be smoothened out and potentially stabilized before KABE Stone is applied. We recommend to consult a professional in order to prepare the surface correctly.
Can KABE Stone be applied on floors with underfloor heating?
Yes, it can! It is important that the underfloor heating is switched off during application and hardening. Be sure to turn off the floor heating 2-3 days before start and keep it off until 8 days after completed application. Turn it on gradually over 5-7 days.
What is the difference between KABE Stone and KABE Stone+?

What is the difference between KABE and KABE Stone?
KABE Stone is a much harder material than KABE and is therefore suitable on vertical and horizontal surfaces which are exposed to high wear.
