Overview

Design Elements

Simple White 3x6 Crystallized Glass "Thassos" Tile

This minimalist design would make a striking back splash for your kitchen or bring a modern touch to your fireplace or any other decorated spot in your home. This crystallized glass tile combines the versatility of pure White Thassos with a composition that is hard as granite. What makes this particular tile so durable is the process that is taken to create the material. The sintering of select minerals and fusing of the sintered crystals through high temperature on to a porcelain backing creates a tile with zero porosity. This ensures it will never require sealing and is completely stain proof. You're left with the beauty of pure White Thassos marble, without any of the maintenance headaches.

What are the options for an exposed edge in a kitchen? Is a bullnose version available?
A shopper on Jun 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You would not want an exposed edge on these since only the front has the glass. A Schulter strip would be a good way to finish off an exposed edge.
I want to use this for my kitchen backsplash...do you have 1/4 round or any finish pieces for the ends?
chrissy on Dec 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We do not have any specific trim pieces made for this product, but you may be able to use a white thassos trim piece to finish the edges. https://tilebar.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=white+thassos+liner
Can this be used for a shower wall? I am looking for a white subway tile that would work well with a hexagonal carerra marble white/grey floor for my shower. Any suggestions? Thank you?
DjD099ies on Mar 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This tile is gorgeous!!! Yes you can use it for a shower wall...order a sample that's what I did...I used it in my kitchen for the backsplash...fabulous...different from your ordinary subway tile...but very subtle! I think it would look great with your marble floor!
The color of this tile is white with no shadowing? Maybe it is just the shadow of the photographer
A shopper on Feb 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The tile is white with very light grey/off white marbling or speckled effect. There is no shadow on the tile.
The installation of this tile calls for a modified thinset. I am looking to install this tile on schluter kerdi board which recommends any type of tile to be installed using unmodified thinset. From the description is appears as though this tile is glass on a porcelain body. Is that correct?
Nate E on Jun 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, tile is about 2/3 thickness porcelain (grey by the way) and 1/3 thickness marble. Edges of the tile show the composition too so have a plan for those.
What kind of mortar would work best with this tile? Using at as a kitchen backsplash... Also using w/ the citadel satin mosaic, will that take similar mortar or is a specific type needed for that?
jglaston on Jan 16, 2017

would these be suitable for outdoor, like as pool waterline tile?
Heather C on Jul 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: For the waterline, yes. Not for the floor. It'd be too slippery if used on the floor.
Would this coordinate with Aurora flower mosaic tile?
Maria V on Jun 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The two would go beautifully together! With that said, it is recommended to get a sample of both before purchasing, just to get a feel for how the two would go together in the specific environment you intend to apply them in.
Can you use this without grout lines, in other words butt them up against each other?
A shopper on Jun 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would not recommend it. Butting them together can cause damage.
How thick is the tile?
Stefanie S on Apr 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 7/16 inch. I just now measured with THIS 3X6 TILE IN MY HAND AND WITH AN ACCURATE TAPE MEASURE.
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 PM 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

        • It is recommended to use grout release, then grout the tile, then use a sealant to the tile such as MP90
        • 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

        • Highly recommended to purchase the Glass Installation/Maintenance Kit, which contains all you need to maintain and care for your tiles.
        • . 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.
