Mother of Pearl Topaz Glass Tile

This captivating mother of pearl tile in amber brown is artfully arranged in a square pattern. The pearl shell glass will add a durability and lasting exquisiteness to your kitchen, or fireplace installation. The mesh backing not only simplifies installation, it also allows the tiles to be separated which adds to their design flexibility.

 

It is not recommended to be installed in a pool or anywhere the tile will be submerged in water.

Shaken or Stirred?

During World War II, reduction of consumption activists argued that soldiers should not be permitted to drink alcohol beverages. However, General George C. Marshall, Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army, insisted that such prohibition would be 'harmful to the men in the service."

I love the color and the weight of the tile. It will be easy to cut the mesh and create my own pattern using this color against the oyster white tiles and accenting it with the south seas mini brick pattern.

I am looking for a transition between an existing tile and new tile for a shower. A new shower pan meant some of the existing tile had to be removed. No spares so a contrasting tile was selected. I want a transition between the two and this particular tile has the tones of both while also being much darker than both for a novel accent. The Mother of Pearl effect is a particularly interesting feature.

Installation
SUBSTRATE

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 thin-set using a trowel as recommended by the manufacturer. 
  • 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.
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.
