About Our Tile

Customization & Delivery

 Cement & Terrazzo Tile, and Breeze Blocks: Tile is sensitive to moisture before it’s properly sealed with a penetrating sealer. Do not store tiles in moist or damp conditions prior to installation. If your tiles will be stored after receiving your order, please store them appropriately in a dry place not subject to any moisture. The same care should be taken when storing our cement breeze blocks.

 Ceramic Tile:Ceramic tiles should be stored in a dry area prior to installation. Moisture or dampness can damage tiles.

Acid Resistance Cement tiles are not resistant to acids and should be cleaned with pH-neutral cleaners.

Use in Wet Areas

A  high-quality sealant must be used for shower, spa, or poolapplications.Cement tiles cannot be used in a pool thatis cleaned with pH-altering products, because cement tiles are not acid-resistant and can only be cleaned with pH-neutral cleaners.

Care Instructions

Use Rust-Oleum Miracle 511 Porous Plus to seal AW cement tiles and grout — apply a minimum of 2 to 3 coats. For cleaning cement tiles, we recommend usingRust-Oleum Miracle Sealants Tile and Stone Cleaner,a non-acidic, anti-bacterial cleaner. When properly maintained, the sealer should have a lifespan comparable to what is advised on the product’s information label. However, the durability of your tile will vary depending on use and traffic. The easiest way to determine if your tile or grout needs to be re-sealed is to spray it lightly with water. If water beads on the surface, the sealer on the tile and/or grout is still in good condition. If the water is absorbed, the sealer should be properly reapplied as soon as possible..

Hexagonal tiles: 8 x 9 x 0.5 inches (20 x 23 x 1.27 cm)

Water Absorption Clay tile is vitreous (high density) and has water absorption of more than 0.5%, but not more than 3% of its own weight.

Scratch Hardness MOHS-6

Abrasion Resistance ASTM-3

Frost Resistance  Medium — handmade clay tilesare not rated to withstand extreme frost conditions. However, if properly installed on a cured concrete slab without air or water bubbles underneath, these tiles will endure decades of use. For more information, please consult our Ceramic Tile Installation Guide.

Stain Resistance

Medium

Slip Resistance

DCOF ≥ 0.42

Recommended Installations

Our clay tiles are recommended for floor, wall, backsplash, accent, and shower applications. With proper installation, our clay tiles can be also used in exterior spaces, including swimming pools in both tropical and cold climates.

Acid Resistance

ASTM C650 - Not Affected

Use in Wet Areas

Ceramic tile can be used in outdoor settings such as patios, pools, and fountains with the correct sealant. Although sealing is not normally required for ceramic tile, for any application subject to a high exposure to water we do recommend properly sealing your ceramic tiles  to ensure the best possible protection over time.

Care Instructions

Our ceramic tiles are low maintenance, durable, and normally require no sealant (except in wet areas, as noted above).
