Title: Lightweight veneer stone cladding panels

Ref Code: IP10/01
Authors: T J S Yates, B Chakrabarti and G Ashall

Abstract1: This Information Paper reviews current knowledge on the use of thin stone veneer as part of composite cladding panels. In collaboration with industry, research was carried out to identify potential problems associated with thin veneer stone cladding. Three main areas were considered: vulnerability to impact damage, effect of repeated wetting and drying cycles, and the effect of differential thermal movement between the stone veneer and the backing material.
