I bought this tile for my kitchen backsplash. Im concerned that the finish of the tile or the tile itself could be negatively affected by the heat from the burners of my slide-in style range oven. Is this a problem?
A shopper on Feb 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am a general contractor, I bought and installed this tile for a shower. But there are many kitchen backsplash installations we have done with glass tile. We have not had any issues with glass tiles.
If you seal tile will it change the frosted look of the tile? Also, same question about grouting will it change the look/finish of the tile?
Dawn M on Nov 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We did not seal the tile, but you might want to take a sample piece and make sure it's not a satin finish sealer. We did grout with a white color and it looks great. Did not change the color or finish, it actually enhanced the look. We also mixed two different colors of the sea glass tile. We bought 100 of one tile and 50 of the shade darker and randomly placed for our back splash in kitchen. Also took a space above the stove and placed a row of tile vertical instead of horizontal. Wish I could send you a picture...it looks great.
What color is this tile ? The description says the color is white. In one of the photos it looks white and some photos it looks green.
Sue M on Jul 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The color is white, but the glass itself can have a greenish tint or tone. I would suggest ordering a sample to make sure the color suits your purposes.
Is it preferable to seal the entire surface of these tiles before grouting them?
A shopper on May 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: we didn't seal ours before grouting, we did use grout that is for glass tile and cleaning solution that goes with it. Sorry, don't remember the name it's been a while
What type of trim would work best with this tile?
A shopper on Jul 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Our tiles are finished on all edges and the color comes through. If you want to cut the tile, just put the cut side on the part that gets grouted and put the finished edge at the end.
Question for staff, is this tile coming back in stock and if yes, what is the anticipated date? Thank you!

What brand thinset, grout, and grout sealer do you recommend for this tile?
A shopper on May 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We recommend Bostik Glass Mate thinset, non-sanded grout of whichever color you prefer, and the Fugaproof sealer. All of which we sell on our website.
What size expansion joints should be used for my kitchen backlash installation, since it will be above my slide-in range oven?

BEST ANSWER: 1/16" minimum
Installation

*These are just guidelines. Please refer to and install our products to the standards set by the TCNA.

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 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.
