love the colors and going to look good on a table
Pamela R on Mar 26, 2019
Ordered samples which made a big difference versus picking online. This tile is very light and airy and should be perfect for our bathroom with abundant natural light. Looking forward to seeing this as the “wow” accent wall over the tub.

Laundry room in a lake house. This tile adds color but remains neutral. Great match for my granite and my patterned floor tile.

Tiling an outdoor pool-side table - looking for compatible color/design.
Debbi M on Nov 27, 2015
I ordered a sample and I loved the color. It reminded me of sea glass, which is exactly what I wanted.
Megan B on Nov 10, 2015
The colors were a perfect splash of many colors to contrast the base of the birdbath bowl I'm tiling.
Pamela H on Oct 27, 2015
My small bathroom is pretty plain, so the pretty iridescent colors are just the pop of color it needs without being overwhelming!
Leesa O on Oct 8, 2015
I shopped for 8 months, and using the samples helped me to narrow down exactly what I wanted. Free shipping is best!!!
Nancy S on Sep 6, 2015
Pretty colors, but still subtle, changes with the light, adds a nice "water" feel to a bathroom setting
Andrea W on Jun 26, 2015
The appears to be beautiful and unusual. I certainly would never have found anything like it in my small town in Canada. I'm renovating my kitchen and am looking forward to this tile in a backsplash being the focal point. Can't wait to see it in person!

Is this simple to install ? Does it have the mesh backing ?
Melody B on Sep 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is relatively easy to install and it does have a mesh back. I would also add the the individual size of the glass tiles is an idea size for fitting a variety of wall sizes. The finished product is fantastic! But I would caution that the glass has hairline cracks that love to fill up with grout. It is more difficult to clean the grout out of the cracks than expected. Took a long time. But again, The finished product is beautiful. I would go through it again.
is this tile suitable for floor part of shower?
A shopper on Feb 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This tile can be used as the floor of the shower due to the grout joints being so close together.
Can you tell me where your products (glass mosaics) are made? What country?
Connie K on Aug 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: not sure where it i mad but, I used it on a project and it looks beautiful
NLM Design Interiors
Does the color on this tile go all the way through or is it painted on?
janis on Feb 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This is translucent glass with the color painted on the back.
Installation

CELESTE SERIES 

  • The Celeste Series is produced as a face mounted mosaic. Instead of a mesh mounted sheet you will receive a sheet with a plastic film holding the tiles in place. The purpose of this new face mounted version is because it is ideal for installations in submerged areas such as pools, showers, bathtubs etc. The plastic film is to be removed only once the sheet has been installed and the thin set has been given adequate time to cure. We have tested several types of thinset and recommend the following:

 

Recommended Thinset    LATICRETE: 254 Platinum

 

Movement Joints

Movement joints are essential for the success of most tile installations. Install movement provisions according to the “2011 TCA Handbook For Ceramic, Glass and Stone Tile Installation” method EJ171-11. A flexible sealant, recommended for submerged applications, is required between the tile and all restraining abutments (i.e. the decking or coping), at all inside corners and directly over any joints in the concrete tank. In-field movement joints are required every 8’ on center in exterior applications or 20’ on center in interior applications. An architect or design professional should be consulted when specifying the exact number and location of each movement joint.  There are a wide variety of flexible sealants available for use in tile installations. Each sealant product will vary in type, application and performance; consult the sealant manufacturer for specific recommendations and imitations.

 

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1

To initiate the bond coat, use the flat side of a trowel and firmly apply thinset to the substrate.

Step 2

To establish the proper depth of the setting bed, use a 3/16” x 1/4” v-notch trowel to apply additional thin-set and comb full notches in one direction.

Step 3

Use the flat side of the trowel to flatten the notches and achieve a smooth, consistent thin-set setting bed.

Step 4

Apply mosaic sheets to the thinset setting bed, tape side towards you, with light, even pressure. When joining sheets, be certain to adjust sheets so that grout lines are uniform. Periodically, check thinset for skinning (slight drying). If skinning occurs, remove thinset and reapply.

Step 5

To achieve the flattest possible surface, lightly tap the sheets using light pressure with a grout float or a wooden beating block and a finish hammer. To unify sheet transitions, tap from one sheet to the next.

Step 6

After the thinset has cured, slowly peel the face mounting tape from the tile starting from the corner. Use an angled downward movement.

 

INSTALLATION MATERIALS

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. 

To speed up the drying process, we recommend cutting small slits in the plastic to facilitate air flow. Additionally, it is very important that the plastic be peeled off at a flat angle - do not grab an edge and pull straight up. Instead, peel it backwards while pressing down on the still covered side and slowly pulling back.

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.

 

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.
