VARIATIONS: Since VersaLite Stone® Lite is a natural product DESIGNED BY NATURE, color and texture variances are not defects within the material, but are inherent to it and part of the natural beauty of quarried materials. These materials cannot be guaranteed to match dye-lot to dye-lot, so it is recommended that orders take into account future maintenance or re-fit possibilities.
STORAGE: Translucent sheets should be stored flat in a clean environment.
PRECAUTIONS: Precautions must be taken when working with VersaLite Stone® Lite due to the fiberglass composition of the backing materials. ALWAYS use the proper gloves, goggles, and dust mask when working with VersaLite Stone® Lite. Industry standards recommend a NIOSH/MSHA approved respirator for this type of material. When using a saw ALWAYS be sure to take proper precautions to cover skin and eyes from fiberglass dust. When cutting VersaLite Stone® Lite with saws, grinders, or sanders, ALWAYS properly filter and exhaust equipment.
