Shaken or Stirred?

The legendary beer brewing monkeys of Borneo actually make a crude version of wine. How do they do it? The monkeys deposit fruits and herbs into large holes in the beds of lava rock and mash it with sticks. Halidonte trees grow near the holes and sprinkle naturally occurring yeast into the holes. A little rain and time produces a strong wine.

Wanted backsplash tile with a dominant blue color. This was more affordable than the marble-marble (budget wins again,) and I like the size because that's fewer grout lines. It is paired with Corian Juniper top and Ben Moore Hollingsworth Green paint for reference.

I was looking for a sophisticated blue-gray tile for my shower wall. I live by the ocean but avoid all of those obvious signals. This has a subtle hint of waves to it. The sample is beautiful. All using the Nabi Sprig arctic blue on the same room.

We were looking for a pop of color in our master bathroom reno. This blue and gray will play along beautifully with the white and gray mosaics,

Hello. How thick is the cultiva Azul macuba tile? I have room transition between the bathroom and bedroom. Thank you
Renovating on Aug 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This product is 10 mm thick.
Does this tile come in smaller sizes, like a subway-tile format of 2" x 4" or 3"x 6"? Can it be cut to that size without destroying the top?
C W on Mar 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This tile does not come in a smaller size at this time. You should be able to cut it using a wet saw with a diamond blade. Edges can be sanded smooth after cutting. Alternatively, you we do have the Blue Macauba Polished Marble (not porcelain) in a 2x4.

Is this tile available unglazed? I just got a sample and love it, but want to use it as flooring and want to use only unpolished tile so it's not too slippery. Thanks.
A shopper on Oct 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This tile is only available in a polished finish.

Installation

SUBSTRATE

Tile must be installed over a suitable substrate to insure a proper installation. 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. 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

  • 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.
  • To avoid affecting the color of the tile, white thinset such as Bostik PM is highly is recommended for all installations. For faster installation, use a rapid curing thinset such as Bostik Single-Flex Fast Set.
  • 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 optimal trowel size is a 9" Trowel - 1/8" 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 hardened 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.
  • Both Sanded and Non-Sanded grouts are acceptable for use. We recommend Sanded grout for joints larger than 1/8 inch and Non-Sanded for 1/8th inches or less.
  • It is recommended to use grout release, then grout the tile, then use a sealant to the tile such as MP90

 

CUTTING

The recommended cutting method is to use a wet saw with a diamond blade. Edges can be sanded smooth after cutting.

 

CLEANING

Highly recommended to purchase the Polished Porcelain Maintenance Kit. Porcelain tile is resistant to germs and bacteria and it is also among the easiest of flooring materials to clean. You can clean your porcelain tile with a damp sponge mop. A solution of 1/4 cup of white vinegar to 2 gallons of water works best – allow time for drying. You can also sweep or vacuum. Although porcelain tile is by definition impervious, it is still possible for its surface to discolor. The following instructions explain how to clean porcelain tile surfaces.

 

For glazed porcelain tiles, use the following instructions for general cleaning:

  • Sweep or vacuum loose dirt and dust from the floor. An untreated dry dust mop is recommended instead of a broom.
  • Mop the floor with a mild cleaning solution (do not use wax, oil-based, or abrasive cleaners).
  • Rinse the tile thoroughly with clean and clear water.
  • Drying is also recommended – to increase the shine and to prevent water spots.

 

  • Always Remember:

    • Do not clean porcelain tile flooring with ammonia or with cleaners that contain bleach and/or acid. Acid and ammonia based cleaners may modify grout color.
    • Do not use wax, oil-based, abrasive cleaners, or sealants.
    • Agents that contain any dyes or colors are not recommended.
    • Use rugs at entrances to prevent dirt and grit from being tracked onto the tile flooring from outdoors.
    • Do not use steel wool pads, because loose steel particles may create rust stains in the grout.
