 TECHNICAL INFORMATION

  CLUSTER STONE

   ( PRODUCT SPECIFICATION SHEET )

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Clusterstone is a lightweight concrete fa├žade with a super-hard

outer shell designed to replicate natural stone to be used on

exterior and interior walls. Because of its lightweight composition,

it does not require additional footings. Clusterstone is intended

for non-structural use and can be applied to load-bearing walls,

wood frames, steel, or masonry. Consult our technical experts for

the proper procedure on surfaces other than plaster.

Sizes & Shapes

Clusterstone varies in size, shape, and color. Visit

 www.flexstoneinc.com for information on each stone pattern.

DEFINITION


Developed for mineral structured surfaces, water, and Acrylic copolymer-based penetrating sealer.


PROPERTIES


Penetrates efficiently on all mineral-based surfaces (i.e.

concrete, mortar, autoclaved-aerated concrete, and natural

stone) and prevents capillary water absorption. While preventing

accumulation of dirt, it also resists mildew and fungi growth on

the surface.


USES


As a protector sealer on natural stone to ensure the longevity of

historical restorations. It is also used to prevent water absorption

on all mineral structured surfaces (cement-based) which are

exposed to water.


APPLICATION METHOD


Apply without diluting with a brush or roller after removing all

dust, dirt, or old paint on the surface. For better protection reapply a second coat as soon as the first coat is absorbed by the

application surface. Note that the application of the second coat

will result in a glossier surface

from mixing time at 20°C.After that time, an outer skin may

form thus preventing the Clusterstone from adhering properly.

Adjustments to the Clusterstone should only be made during its

open time.

It is recommended to leave a minimum width of 2 mm around the

Clusterstone (or as per design).

Grouting the Clusterstone joints should only be done at least 24

hours after filling.

diffusion, and degradation.

Material of gloves: The selection of the suitable

gloves do not only depend on the material, but

also on further marks of quality and varies from

manufacturer to manufacturer. As the product is a

preparation of several substances, the resistance

of the glove, the material can not be calculated in

advance and has therefore to be checked prior to the

application.

Penetration time of glove material: The exact break

trough time has to be found out by the manufacturer

of the protective gloves and has to be observed.

Eye protection: Tightly sealed goggles

INSTALLATION GUIDE


PREPARATIONS FOR INSTALLATION


  •  Do not apply Clusterstone upon a painted surface or upon a surface covered with a film of varnish. Correct the situations, depending on the case.
  •  Do not apply cladding stone upon surfaces with an increased water absorption ratio, upon surfaces that are corroded by humidity, or upon dust-covered or flimsy surfaces.
  •  During installation in extreme climates, we suggest using adhesives as per the specifications.
  •  Do not install the product if it is not in compliance with the specifications. Contact your supplier as soon as possible, producing the relevant purchasing invoices.


INSTALLATION PROCEDURE


Stone is applied upon wall surface, with cured rough

plaster/scratch-coated wall, If a surface is already

plastered, it must be hammered first to make sure

that there are no flimsy parts. In extreme cases where

there are old or flimsy surfaces, sandblasting/ proper

grinding is required.


  • Application on drywall surfaces: A primer must be used to make sure that the wall is little moist before the cluster stone installation, then the stone will be glued.
  • You should always sprinkle the application surface and the rear side of the stone using plenty of water prior to the application of the glue.

 Prepare the glue or the joint grouting material, paying attention to the amount of water added so as to ensure proper workability.

 If corners are formed, then start from the corner and continue the formation of the line using flat pieces.

  •  Level the first line where the stones are to be installed.
  •  During the application process, avoid creating vertical joints in successive lines.
  •  Using a trowel or a similar tool, clean the perimeter of the stone free from burs for better application.
  •  Apply only a reasonable amount of glue upon the stone application surface to ensure that it will not get dry before the installation of the stone.
  • Apply glue covering the entire rear side of the stone ensuring that there is no gap between the stone and the application surface.
  •  Install the stone by pressing a hand on the glue to ensure proper adhesion of the rear side of the
  • stone. The amount of glue applied on the rear side of the stone must be sufficient so that, when pressing the stone, the glue should overflow from the edges of the stone.
  • When applying the stone, use a mallet to avoid “hurting” it.
  •  To install JOINTLESS stone, fill the grove in the perimeter of such stone with glue. Make sure that you clean any surplus glue that may come out before it reaches the front surface of the stone and gets dirty. If the front surface of the stone gets dirty due to glue coming out, you should clean it using a soft wire brush just before the glue sets. You should never try to clean fresh glue.
  •  If there is a joint, to make sure that stones remain properly fixed, you may use small wedges. To apply joint grout, use a pastry bag or a joint grout gun. In both cases cut the grouting edge until you achieve the desired joint grouting width and fill the joints with grout. Smoothen the joint using a trowel or a similar special tool. Before the grout sets (after ½ or 1 hour) scratch the joint with a wire brush (made from brass or hard plastic, not from metal). Clean the stones using a clean brush.


POST-INSTALLATION


  •  Do not use pressurized water or sandblasting to clean the stones.
  •  Do not use oxides or corrosive compounds to clean the stones.
