TXTR-LITE™ can be used for flooring with the proper adhesive and application techniques. Since TXTR-LITE™ is not a thick solid stone it is not recommended for high traffic areas. It can be used for low traffic flooring areas such as residential bathrooms or where wet traction is required. Some colors of TXTR-LITE™ offer better traction than others. For example Silver Shine or Jeera Green will have more texture then some of the other softer slate colors. Sealers will have an effect on the traction of the surface of each TXTR-LITE™ color. Therefore, it is recommended that various sealers be tested prior to final installation when considering TXTR-LITE™ for flooring.
For new installations TXTR-LITE™ is best adhered over most standard subfloor materials such as cement board, and backer board usually in the ½" to ¼" thickness range. Using a layer of cement board or backer board over wood floors will result in a more solid feel to the finished floor.
TXTR-LITE™ will also offer a protective resilient surface inherent with the stone face and fiberglass backing. This can further help with crack prevention in some cases.
