FAQ

  • Is PU Stone Waterproof?
    PU (Polyurethane) stone is water-resistant but not completely waterproof. While it can withstand occasional exposure to water and moisture without damage, it is essential to take proper precautions to maintain its integrity and appearance over time. Water-resistance in PU stone is achieved through the material's properties, including a closed-cell structure that prevents water from being absorbed. This feature makes PU stone suitable for applications in damp or humid environments, such as bathrooms, kitchens, and outdoor areas, where it is exposed to occasional splashes or humidity. To ensure the longevity of PU stone and its water-resistance properties, consider the following tips: Sealing: Apply a suitable sealant or waterproofing agent to protect the surface of the PU stone, especially in areas prone to frequent water exposure. Regular Maintenance: Clean and wipe the surface of PU stone regularly to remove any moisture or water buildup. Avoid Prolonged Water Exposure: Avoid installing PU stone in areas with constant and direct water exposure, such as shower floors or poolside surfaces. Quickly Address Spills and Moisture: Promptly wipe off any spills or moisture that come into contact with the PU stone surface. By following these guidelines, you can maintain the water-resistance of PU stone and ensure it retains its beauty and durability over time in areas with occasional exposure to water and humidity.
  • How to install PU Stone at home?
    Step-by-Step Guide to Installing PU Stone at Home: Before You Begin: Prepare the Surface: Ensure that the surface where you'll be installing the PU stone panels is clean, dry, and free from dust or debris. If needed, repair any cracks or imperfections on the surface. Gather the Tools: Gather all the necessary tools for the installation, including a measuring tape, level, pencil, adhesive (appropriate for PU stone), utility knife, saw, caulking gun, and a trowel. Installation Steps: Measure and Plan: Measure the area where you'll be installing the PU stone panels. Plan the layout, taking into consideration any corners, edges, or obstacles. It's a good idea to dry-fit the panels to ensure they fit correctly before applying adhesive. Apply Adhesive: Using a trowel, apply the adhesive on the back of the PU stone panel. Make sure to spread it evenly, covering the entire back surface. Position the Panel: Carefully place the PU stone panel onto the prepared surface, aligning it with the planned layout. Press the panel firmly to ensure it adheres properly to the wall. Check for Level: Use a level to verify that the panel is straight and level. Adjust if necessary by gently tapping or repositioning the panel. Continue Installing Panels: Repeat steps 2 to 4 for the next panel, ensuring proper alignment and levelness with the previous one. Apply adhesive only to one panel at a time to avoid it drying out before installation. Cut Panels to Fit: If needed, cut the panels to fit around corners or edges using a saw or utility knife. Measure and mark the cut lines carefully before making any cuts. Fill in Gaps: Once all full-size panels are in place, address any gaps between panels or at edges. Use a caulking gun to apply PU stone caulking or filler to achieve a seamless appearance. Allow Adhesive to Dry: Follow the adhesive manufacturer's guidelines regarding drying time. Allow the adhesive to cure fully before proceeding with any additional steps. Inspect and Clean: After the adhesive has dried, inspect the installed PU stone panels for any imperfections. Clean the panels gently using a damp cloth to remove any excess adhesive or dust. Final Touches: Depending on the design, you may need to install trim pieces, such as corner pieces or decorative elements, to complete the look. Maintenance Tips: PU stone requires minimal maintenance. Regularly clean the surface with a soft cloth and mild soap and water to keep it looking fresh. Avoid using abrasive or harsh cleaning agents that could damage the PU stone surface. In case of accidental damage, you can easily replace individual PU stone panels without disturbing the surrounding ones. Safety Precautions: Work in a well-ventilated area when using adhesive or other chemicals. Wear appropriate safety gear, such as gloves and safety glasses, during installation. By following this step-by-step guide, you can install PU stone at home and enjoy the beauty and elegance it brings to your interior spaces without the need for professional assistance.
