I believe that I ordered directly without a sample. The tile is spectacular in looks and quality and it matches my carnival glass collection perfectly!Hi Can I use in between marble tiles on my bathroom floor? Can the tiles be walked on (a little)?BEST ANSWER: Hello,
I used the tile as my kitchen back splash so I don't know if you can walk on them but please know that the tiles are outstanding! I love my kitchen with the beautiful tile! Good luck! I would love to see a pick if you do use the glass on the floor.. it it wonderful quality tile and I love it!Would like to use for kitchen backsplash. How do we order border tiles?BEST ANSWER: I used for kitchen backsplash and just cut down some tiles to even things out at the ends. This really is beautiful tile.. I love it!! Is a bit darker than on my monitor & I like it even better!!Can this be effectively used for a pool (the rim) and jacuzzi? It came up when I scrolled through Pool options, but assume items are in more than one where they apply-as every review and Q&A seems to be about non-pool applications. I'm only interested in knowing if this will be okay and/or if there is any pool-specific advice. If no one has any experience from this angle, no problem, but being a new homeowner and remodeler, I'm unsure the requirements for a tile in a chlorine pool.BEST ANSWER: I would ask Tile Bar, there are pool specific tiles and I don't know if these are, they are glass and I don't think the chlorine would affect it but freezing might. That said if i were redoing my pool and I could use these I definitely would they are so beautiful. I love them
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.
- 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.
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.
