How long time does it take to apply Stone products?

Where can Stone products be applied?
Stone and Stone Raw can be used on almost all surfaces outside wet zones. The Stone products are ideal for application on floors, furniture and walls exposed to extraordinary wear. You can up-cycle old furniture or build a new furniture based on your desired measurements. KABE Stone and KABE Stone Raw is also ideal for kitchen countertops and the wall behind a stove.
Which surfaces can Stone products be applied on?
Stone and Stone Raw 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 Stone or Stone Raw on tiles, planks or other uneven or unstable surfaces?
As both Stone and Stone Raw 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 stabilised before Stone products are applied. We recommend to consult a professional in order to prepare the surface correctly. If the product used for levelling very absorbent, a primer should be used before KABE Stone products are applied.
Can KABE Stone products be applied on floors with underfloor heating?
Yes, they 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 Stone and Stone Raw?
The only difference between Stone and Stone Raw is the texture of the plaster. Stone Raw is a rougher plaster that makes it easier to create a lively and tactile finish. Stone Raw might be more convenient than Stone to apply because of its rough texture, making it easier to control when applying.
What is the difference between KABE and Stone/Stone Raw?
Both Stone products consist of a much harder material than KABE and is therefore suitable on vertical and horizontal surfaces which are exposed to high wear. For walls indoor that are not either in a wet zone or behind a stove, we recommend to apply KABE. On all other surfaces outside wet zones we recommend Stone or Stone Raw.
