PS: Tilebar has some gorgeous medallions, but for my shower budget, this is a perfect choice. Also, Ralph was great. Excellent customer service from him!Susan M on Nov 17, 2016Is this qualified as a floor tile?BEST ANSWER: No I would not use as a floor tile ... when using the french pattern, it is not perfect 12 x 12 sections and you have to hand cut pieces to even it out. This is glass tile and it splintered when we cut it and we had to be very careful when handling. I absolutely love this pattern & colors and so happy with the finished product but it definitely should only be used on walls.How does this product handle being applied to a fireplace?BEST ANSWER: Its going to work like any other glass tile would. Not a problem so long as you have a barrier between the heat of the chimney and the tile itself. Heat transfer is your biggest concern in order to keep the grout and the glass from cracking. Also, having it too hot to touch. If your chimney is lined in accordance with current codes, it won't be a problem at all. Enjoy !!Is this tile acid proof and frost proof? I would like to use it in our pool.BEST ANSWER: This Tile was my first choice for my Swimming Pool.
I ordered a full sheet to check it out before ordering a large quantity.
It is beautiful, but will NOT work at all easily for a typical 6" Height decorative perimeter: Because of the French Pattern, the outer edges of each 12" sheet are OFFSET [NOT Square, as shown in the Photo above]. The tiles would need to be cut and/or pieced. This is a "tumbled" stone with an eased edge, so this would be quite a job on a pool install. "Aquatic Sky Blue French Pattern" has Square edges/even divisions, but is definitely not the same tile! "Coastal Seaside" is available in a SQUARE Pattern, but that pattern makes the tile look very different from the French Pattern [I got a full sheet of that, too]. I realize the above does not answer your ACID/FROST question, but I attempted to answer the Pool SUITABILITY issue.
Tile must be installed over a suitable substrate to insure a proper installation. Glass 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. Glass is reflective therefore any inconsistencies in the substrate will result in a poor installation. For pools and fountains we recommend installing a mortar bed according to TCA P601-98. EXPANSION AND CONTROL JOINTS PER TCA EJ171-05 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 glass 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.
- You would need to use Non-Sanded Grout.
- 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.
- Highly recommended to purchase the Glass Installation/Maintenance Kit - http://www.TileBar.com/collection/tiling-supplies/glass-tile-maintenance-package.html
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.
