Installation of glass tiles.
  The 6" x 6"  tiles met the ANSI and ASTM standards above without tempering.  The non-tempered tile may be cut with a glass cutter, or a tile saw (wet saw application, new diamond blade) or using a waterjet cutting service (check your local vendors). We recommend using an Epoxy Thin-Set mortar in white for mounting the textured glass tile in any application. This adhesive should be readily available in most areas, and has exhibited superior bond strength without damaging the SingleStep white backing on the tiles.  You should use a grout specifically formulated for use with glass tile. Tiles can be cleaned with any household non-abrasive cleaner and a soft cloth or sponge.

Kiln Fired porcelain
Tile Murals or individual tiles

will last a lifetime outdoors or indoors.
Porcelain tiles are high gloss
  6x6,  8x8, 11.50x11.50--- 5 weeks lead time

Porcelain kiln fired tiles are fired at 1800 Degrees F
Tiles for floors are full bodied.. Indoors or outdoors

Duration-Images last for a lifetime.
Damage-Unless the porcelain tile is broken, no dust or scratches will damage the image.
Fade Proof-Images are melted into glass and they are permanently in tacked.
UV Radiation-The pigment is made from minerals therefore they are not affected by any radiation.
Oxidation-The porcelain tile is like glass and therefore impervious to any acids.

Once the mural is finished and fired there is no difference in durability between any non imaged porcelain tiles and tiles you would have bought at the tile store.

Please reseal grout every year  
so that water will not  get behind the tiles


Please note: Only buy kiln fired tiles for outdoors...
Even if you don't buy it from me. Ask questions.
Anyone that offers sublimation or UV resistant tiles for outdoors is selling you a product that will absolutely not hold up outdoors over time even in protected ares.. The heat will migrate the inks even in 100 degree temps. It may take longer to fade but it WILL fade.
