The flexible sandstone from YTTERSTONE®

YTTERSTONE®-Sandstone is a natural product grown in millions of years. Due to its structure and diverse color and its flexible properties, it can be used in a wide variety of applications in the building and architecture sectors, giving surfaces and rooms an exclusive and distinctive character. In the development of the YTTERSTONE® sandstone, it was our goal to make a simple use and easy processing of sandstone possible.


YTTERSTONE® sandstone is extracted from natural, sediment-grown layers. In the case of degradation, approximately three millimeters of elastic webs are formed, which subsequently can be glued and sealed in many areas. The special appearance of the sandstone surface and the natural properties of the sandstone, such as the antistatic effect, are retained.

In addition to the mined mined sandstone, YTTERSTONE® has developed a manufacturing process for the artificial production of a particularly thin flexible sandstone. This so-called sandstone wallpaper can be produced in various color combinations and decors. Customized color variations can also be produced according to customer requirements.

The history of the flexible sandstone from YTTERSTONE®

The construction engineer, Heiko Neupert, had the vision to convert sandstone grown over millions of years into a flexible and easy-to-use, novel building material. After years of testing in 2000 the market introduction of YTTERSTONE® Sandstone. In the same year the product was registered as a European patent. In 2004, Heiko Neupert won the great inventor prize at the 37th International Inventory Fair in Geneva with his new flexible sandstone. Subsequently, YTTERSTONE®'s flexible sandstone was launched.

In the following years the development of a new production process began, with which particularly thin, flexible sandstone layers can be produced artificially. The development of the manufacturing process has been completed since 2015 and the marketing of the so-called YTTERSTONE® sandstone wallpaper has already begun.

In 2016, the YTTERSTONE® Sandstone was awarded the Federal Prize for outstanding innovative achievements for craftsmen at the International Handicrafts Fair in Munich.

Im Jahr 2016 wurde der YTTERSTONE® Sandstein auf der Internationalen Handwerksmesse in München mit dem Bundespreis für hervorragende innovatorische Leistungen für das Handwerk ausgezeichnet.

Advantages of the flexible sandstone from YTTERSTONE®

Use of the flexible sandstone in the facade area
Due to its thin wall thickness of one to four millimeters, the flexible sandstone from YTTERSTONE® is lightweight and can even be applied to full heat protection without doweling. Since natural sandstone is antistatic and is provided with the Lotus effect by the YTTERSTONE® seal, you do not need to clean the sandstone surface again. Even in the base area, YTTERSTONE® sandstone surfaces remain free of moss.

Use of the flexible sandstone in bathrooms and wellness areas

No matter how chalky your water is, because of the antistatic effect of the sandstone, YTTERSTONE® sandstone surfaces are free of lime. Thanks to the widely tested YTTERSTONE® sandstone seal, the surface remains free of dirt and limescale deposits. In addition, the completely sealed surface saves the silicone joints.

The flexible sandstone from YTTERSTONE® is also ideally suited for paneling in the pool and water pool area. Due to its flexible properties and seamless processing, it can be used very well in this special environment up to 5 meters of water depth. Anyone who has ever felt sandstone under his feet while bathing in the swimming pool would not want to use any other material for this purpose. Read on »

Use of the flexible sandstone in the living area

Due to the special aesthetics of sandstone surfaces, YTTERSTONE® sandstone-clad wall and floor surfaces contribute to the special atmosphere in interior spaces. Due to its flexible properties, the YTTERSTONE® sandstone can also be processed around the corner and on curved and rounded surfaces. Read on »

Use of the flexible sandstone in the floor area
Due to the possibility of jointless laying, the flexible sandstone from YTTERSTONE® is particularly suitable for covering floor surfaces. Using the YTTERSTONE® sandstone coating, sandstone floors can be cleaned in a third of the time compared to a tiled floor. Sand stone surfaces are also slipping in moisture and thus reduces the risk of accidents. Read on »
