Description

This is a high-quality, back-painted glass mosaic. Edges are straight cut, resulting in an elegant, colorful, translucent, contemporary look.

Applications

This glass mosaic tile can be used on residential or commercial, interior or exterior walls. Common applications include: bathroom walls and floors, kitchen counter backsplashes, column wraps, furniture fronts, swimming pool interiors and other decorative surfaces.

Installation

Glass will crack if not installed correctly, especially large-format glass. Refer to the Tile Council of North America (TCNA) Handbook for installation requirements specific to your application.

  • Be sure that the wall has the proper gauged support studs and that they are braced correctly.
  • Set the appropriate grout joints. Wider grout joints must be used with large format glass tiles. Tiles will crack if the grout joints are not wide enough.
  • Refrain from putting glass in contact with metal (i.e. faucets, handles, shower frame). Any glass to metal contact will cause the tiles in contact with the metal to crack.
  • Use the proper adhesive. Different applications require different adhesives. Installers should refer to the TCNA Handbook.
  • Backs of tiles must be fully covered in adhesive (back-buttered) during installation. Otherwise, tiles will crack.
  • Level and plumb the wall prior to installing glass. An unlevel surface will create tension across the wall, which will cause tiles to crack.
  • Installers should always refer to the TCNA Handbook.

Cutting Tiles

Use a standard new, sharp blade suitable for cutting glass tiles, which must be constantly kept wet with water. Cutting the pieces with the colored surface turned upwards and taping both sides will reduce chipping. Cutting must not be carried out near the edges of the individual pieces. Smooth off any sharp edges with sandpaper. Holes can be made with a specific drill bit for glass with a diameter up to 5/16". Apply water continually while drilling.

AN IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT STONE & TILE SIZES:
Product photography and samples are to be used as a general guide. Color as well as percentage, size and shape of markings will vary. Sizes are nominal, not actual. This is a general rule of thumb when selecting natural stone or porcelain tile from any resource.
Typically, the sizes shown are NOMINAL, not ACTUAL. This means that the tile size will vary slightly from material to material.
I.e. If a material is noted as being a 12" x 24" tile, it is typically a tile that is actually 30 cm x 60 cm. The actual size would then be 11.811" x 23.622". An industry rule of thumb is to round to the nearest whole number. To ensure that you have enough material for any project, it is always advisable to order a small overage of 10-15% more than is required.

A NOTE ABOUT PORCELAIN TILE AND CERAMIC TILE:
Samples are to be used as a general guide. Pattern and shade may vary. Sizes are nominal, not actual.
