LITESTONE can be glued to surfaces using most standard laminate adhesives, better if having a thick body or foaming quality. If the application is outdoors, consideration to thermal expansion should be taken into account. Pressure sensitive adhesives are also recommended. We recommend making a test area with any adhesive prior to final application. If needed, thickness equalizing can be done by additions of rubber sheets glued on the supports.

1. Unpack

Unpack and spread the Litest1 sheets to check the surface texture and determine the position and orientation for the installation, drawing in advance any cutting lines. Make the necessary and possible cuts before laying.

2. liquid or paste

If you plan to use liquid or paste adhesives, or use a paste for joints, cover the edges of the sheets with paper tape, to avoid staining the stone with the adhesive.
In case of installation with joints, use spacers to make sure that the distance between the sheets is regular and uniform.

3. adhesive

Apply the selected adhesive. Always check the compatibility with the support beforehand. Preferably use a soft roller to press on the surface, to fix the adhesion. See the "Recommended - Adhesives" table for more information.
Glue the Litest1 sheets, preferably starting from the lower ones. Wait for the time needed for the final adhesion before carrying out any other finishing works (holes, cuts for opening, etc.).

4. accidental damages

In case of accidental damages to the surface after laying, it is possible to request the repair powders specifying the type of material to be restored. Spread a small amount of fast drying adhesive on the defect and dust with the appropriate powder. After the drying time, remove by blowing the excess of powder.


To make the surface hydro-oleo-repellent or resistant to scratches and abrasions, use the Hi-Tech products of the LOTUS line. Read the instructions before use.

6. 3D objects

In case of coating of 3D objects, it is suggested to glue LITEST1 to the support before make the needed 45 ° cuts.


For small works, use standard wood cutting tools. Blades of this type are subject to high consumption, diamonds blades are a valid and much more durable alternative. Metal cutting tools and any standard carbide or diamond saw blades can be used.
