Brazilian Tiger Blue Polished 8x48 Porcelain Tile

The magical land of New Zealand treasures the most exotic wood in the world, because it is obtained from trees that have fallen due to cataclysms and have remained underground for thousands of years. The La Fabbrica Kauri Tasman Polished 8X48 Porcelain Tile is inspired by the unique style of this wood and it reflects its natural elegance in modern living environments. Also available in a matte finish.

Shaken or Stirred?

Arguably one of the most famous Brazilian drinks (and the national cocktail), Caipirinha is made with cachaça, sugar and lime. The drink is supposedly derived from a popular homemade recipe that was used for patients of Spanish flu and originally included garlic and honey.

Installation
SUBSTRATE

Tile must be installed over a suitable substrate to insure a proper installation. Tile should be installed over a clean, sound, and flat surface, free of contaminates including curing compounds. Substrate should be free of cracks. If used in a wet area you must waterproof. See manufacturer’s recommendation on a membrane for crack and water protection that is compatible with the setting material you are using. Expansion joints should be installed at all “changes in plane” in the tile work and where tile abuts restraining surfaces, therefore silicone caulking sealant must be installed in all corner joints in place of grout.

INSTALLATION
  • To avoid affecting the color of the tile, White modified thin-set such as Bostik Glass Mate is highly is recommended for all installations.
  • Apply as much adhesive as can be covered within 10-15 minutes. 
  • Grout joint should be a minimum of 1/16” and not butt set.
  • The trowel size you can use is a 9" Trowel - 1/16" square notch.
GROUTING
  • Grout joints should be packed full and free of voids and pits.
  • Clean excess grout as the work progresses before it has hardens completely.
  • Acids should never be used for cleaning grout haze.
  • Use a damp sponge for the final cleaning and to smooth out the grout joints.
  • It is recommended to use non-sanded grout.
  • It is recommended to use grout release, then grout the tile, then use a sealant to the tile such as our MP90
  • Highly recommended to purchase the Glass & Stone Installation/Maintenance Kit - http://www.TileBar.com/collection/tiling-supplies/glass-stone-tile-maintenance-package.html
CUTTING

The recommended cutting method is to use a wet saw with a diamond blade that is specifically for cutting glass. Edges can be sanded smooth after cutting.
