We wanted a watery feeling for a modern house close to the beach in San Diego CA.

I absolutely love the colors and the random tile sizes. Also I will not need to cut it as I can fill in with the random sized tiles.

The colors perfectly match the palette that was my inspiration for my garage renovation.

We are refinishing our swimming pool and selected this glass mosaic tile for the 6" waterline accent tile because we wanted something more elegant than the typical pool waterline tile. This mosaic brings the colors of the pool plaster out while providing a contrast. The multiple shapes of the mosaic and the color texture within each square will provide a great accent to our pool.

To go in my shower that I am remodeling.

I loved the offset tiles, the fact that it is not just 1-inch squares. It makes it seem more timeless to me.

Would this work for border tile around a pool? Half out of the water.
J G on Sep 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This would work wonderfully as a border around a pool.
I was looking to tile the top of a manicure table?
A shopper on Jan 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This would look beautiful on top of a manicure table. I would definitely recommend using an unsanded grout so it'll have a clean, sophisticated appearance. I highly recommend sealing it, but if you want to take an extra step in protecting your investment, I would place a tempered glass on top of it so the acid in the manicure chemicals won't ruin it. Hopefully this helps, and good luck! Post pictures! =)
Can I use this on kitchen counter tops?
terri e on Feb 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don't feel it is advised to use a small mosaic on any horizontal surface that will receive a lot of use. It is not only more stable to use a solid-surface material for a countertop, but it is more sanitary due to the many grout lines. IF you are considering using this on a small area that is more decorative, then it might be OK.
Can this be used in the floor of a shower?
Sandra S on Nov 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This tile is not recommended for any floor use, but can definitely be used on shower walls!
Installation

GLASS TILE CHARACTERISTICS

This material is made of clear and transparent glass. The back of the glass tile is coated with the desired pigment(s) and a white protective coating visible from the back of the tile. The multi-layered protective coating is fired with the tile and ensures that the thin-set mortars will not be visible after installation. The pigments and glass are made from natural minerals and as such the firing process will cause slight variations in shades and size. All material is sorted according to ANSI standard A137 size tolerances and packaging is clearly marked with caliber and shade/tone/dye-lot.

 

GLASS INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

    • These instructions are meant to be a guide for most installations, under normal conditions. Please follow best practice instructions found in the Tile Council of North America (TCNA) 09300 Handbook for specific installation types.

 

MATERIAL INSPECTION

      • We always recommend dry-fitting your pattern first to think about your cuts in advance and to make sure you like the pattern. This will also help you choose which pieces go where, which is especially helpful with tiles that have a lot of variation. Due to the nature of the material and production process it may be possible to see through the clear glass on certain angles which can appear as a lighter line along the edges of the glass. This is not a factory defect or deficiency of any kind in the material and should be expected by the end consumer. *Always use appropriate personal protective safety equipment when handling, drilling, cutting or grinding glass tile such as (but not limited to) eye, ear and hand protection.

 

SUBSTRATE

        • Before you start tiling, make sure that whatever surface the tiles are being installed to will be strong and structurally sound. Cement board, concrete or drywall is best, as these surfaces can handle the moisture of the tiling process. Plywood should be avoided, since the wood will warp with the added moisture and it will also be less waterproof, even after tiling.

 

INSTALLATION MATERIALS

Thin-Set

  • To avoid affecting the color of the tile, white thinset such as Bostik Glass-Mate is strongly recommended for all installations.
  • Apply as much adhesive as can be covered within 10-15 minutes.

 

Tools
3/16" or 1/4" square notch trowel should be used when installing our glass material and ridges should be smoothed down with the flat side of the trowel prior to fixing the tiles in the mortar bed. Tiles larger than 3x3 should be back-buttered with a thin continuous layer of the thin set applied with the flat side of the trowel.

Drying Time
Glass tiles are non-porous: the moisture in the setting materials cannot migrate through the glass and must evaporate slowly through the joints. All setting material, even rapidest mortars need a longer time to cure. Allow thin-set mortar to dry completely for a minimum of 72 hours prior to grouting or otherwise interfering with the fresh installation.

Cutting
Use a glasscutter (score and snap) with a new diamond wheel for best results when cutting our glass tiles. Wetting the diamond wheel with oil before cutting will produce the smoothest cuts. In some cases it may be possible to use a wet-saw with a new, continuous rim diamond blade specifically designed for cutting glass. Do not use turbo or other notched blades designed for use with porcelain or ceramic as the teeth can cause a coarse cut, resulting in a heavily chipped edge. To cut angles without a wet saw or grinder, drill a small hole at the apex of the angle prior to cutting. In most cases, this will allow the use of a score and snap cutter and avoid small cracks that can happen at the angle. Cut edges and corners will be sharp. Always be sure to smooth the cut edges manually with a diamond hand pad or ceramic dressing stone.

Drilling
If possible, drill holes before installing tile. Drilling from both sides can ensure a cleaner finish if the hole will be visible after installation. Using a new diamond coring bit (for large holes) or spade bit (for small holes) with a diamond tip made for glass drilling will give the best results. Lubricating the bit and tile surface with a continuous spray of oil/water mix will prolong the life of bits and provide a better-finished edge. When possible, the use of a jig will ensure precise placement of holes to be drilled.

When drilling holes for anchoring bolts, plumbing or any other dissimilar material always ensure a minimum of 1/8" clearance around the item is provided to avoid cracking due to disparate expansion and contraction rates or stress transfer.

 

GROUTING

 

Non-sanded grout that is latex or polymer modified and compliant with A118.4 should be used for our glass material. If sanded grout must be used for technical or aesthetic reasons (such as with mosaics with larger grout joints), gentle application of grout with a soft rubber float is recommended to minimize the possibility of surface scratching. A mock up or testing installation should be executed to ensure results are acceptable.

After grouting, wipe of excess surface grout with a slightly damp sponge - do not over wash. After initial wash has been allowed to haze, wipe once with minimal pressure at a 45-degree angle to joints and rinse sponge after wiping once with each side. Any remaining haze can be buffed off with a dry towel or cheesecloth after grout surface has dried sufficiently. Grout joints should be a minimum of 1/16” and not butt set. Clean excess grout as the work progresses before it has hardened completely. In the event that a grout haze forms, you can use an acid-free remover such as Deterdek to remove it. Acids should never be used for cleaning grout haze.

 

 

CARE AND MAINTENANCE

 

. For normal care and maintenance of glass tile, wiping the surface with a damp sponge or clothe with water or a light vinegar solution is sufficient. If stronger cleaning is needed, a nonabrasive, neutral pH cleaner can be used.

Glass tile may be damaged from impact with hard or heavy objects, which can lead to chipping or breakage causing sharp cutting edges that can lead to injuries. Always replace any damaged glass tiles immediately.
