fake brick wall

could anybody help me with this? it's impossible to find something if you don't know the name.
what i'm looking for is this cheap fake brick uhh... "backsplash" kind of idea, it goes behind a woodstove to protect the wall from the heat/ look like you installed a brick hearth when you didn't. if i only knew how to search for this project, all my arts and crafts dreams would come true!

Throughout the industry it is known as "THIN BRICK" but other names are applied by the makers.

Buyer beware however.

Some of it (like shown in the above photo) is a casting from a mold and is really made of colored cement, this becomes an issue when a smaller piece must be cut for a filler because cutting exposes the cement edge and is ugly. Cipping can also expose the cement color.

It is also available in real brick that has been sawn. When you have to cut this type of product you still see the real brick on the cut edge.

Also be aware that not all sellers of "thin-brick" include the required "L" pieces for making corners and returns.

Search: "THIN BRICK"

Maybe you're looking for 'Z'Brick. It comes in small sheets and looks fake as h---. I haven't seen it readily available since the late eighties, for good reason, but if you just need a 'firewall' to nail up, that's the brand name.

Possibly "stone veneer?" I've been looking at this for a possible kitchen backsplash if I decide not to tile. Google it and you'll get tons of results. Even sold @ Lowes if ya want to take a look @ it! Hope that helps.
