Important information about this material
Stormy Gray slabs have a resin and mesh backing and therefore require an epoxy setting adhesive such as Latapoxy from Laticrete or similar. This is a fragile material. Use an experienced fabricator familiar with working and repairing these materials. Waste materials should be factored in to fabrication as repairs and reinforcements will likely need to be made. Complex cut to size projects are not advised. Travertine is a porous material with naturally-occuring holes that may remain unfilled or be factory-filled with resin or cement. Do not use resin-filled materials outside, as the resin will discolor over time. See the Applications Guide PDF for alternatives.

 Technical Performance Specs
Rating ABRASION RESISTANCE
(The ability of a material to resist surface wear.)
Low This material has low abrasion resistance. It rates as a 1-3 on the Mohs scale. Light scratching will occur with exposure to sand and other abrasives. The finish will patina or dull over time as a result of this scratching. Always use a cutting board for countertop applications and walk-off mats at entrances in flooring applications.
Rating ABSORPTION
(The relative porosity of a material.)
High This material has a medium to high absorption rate. Always seal this material prior to use. Properly seal the material prior to grouting by applying several coats of sealant or until water beads up on the surface. Use Fila PRW200 to avoid staining from grout residues and specify a grout color that is similar to the color of the stone to avoid color bleeding into the material. Use low moisture setting materials. To reduce the appearance of stains, always wipe up spills immediately. Oil and highly-pigmented liquids can penetrate and stain the stone and may need poultice to remove the stain.
Rating ACID SENSITIVITY
(The likelihood of a material reacting to acidic foods or liquids.)
High This material is highly sensitive to acids. Acid etching will be highly visible on this material when exposed to acidic foods such as lemons or tomatoes. Do not use this material on kitchen countertop applications where acid etching is a concern. If acid etching is a concern, select a minimally sensitive material.
Rating FREEZE-THAW
(The ability of a material to withstand freeze-thaw cycles in exterior applications.)
Not Recommended Due to known material weakness or because this material has not been tested, this material is not approved for use in exterior applications.
