To rest on one's laurels that's not Eberhard Richter. After 5 years of intensive researches and endless tests he succeeded in refining the process to such a high level that in 2009 he surprised the international markets with Nanostone®, the thinnest stone in the world. Despite its super-thin slate thickness of 50-100 µ, the surface structure is still intact and is astonishing with its unsurpassed visual look and feel. The fleece backer reinforced from water-jet hardened fabric without any chemical binding agents is the actual thickness of the material. It is suitable for post-forming applications like Wall Covering, Interiors, Handbags, Jackets etc. It will conform to a radius as small as 2 millimeters. With its outstanding technical characteristics NanoStone® extends the capabilities of the application and product line to new horizons.
As light as a feather and very flexible. It may be thermo-formed, three-dimensionally formed or wrapped and is suitable for post-forming applications with no problems. The raw stone surface is protected against dust and damage by a silicon emulsion.
The German Design Council has awarded the prize "Design Plus" to Richter Furniertechnik for its innova-tive product "NanoStone®". RICHTER developed a special technology to split stone layers in a few hundredths of a millimeter in thickness.
Thus NanoStone® was born - extremely thin and flexible.
During the ZOW show in Verona, Italy the M TECHNOLOGY AWARD for 2009 was presented to Richter Furnier technik. NanoStone® was recognized with GOLD for special design and innovative performance
