Glazed Ceramic Tile In Mosaic Art

Preventing Freeze Damage

Glazed ceramic materials are particularly susceptible to freeze damage, as are all porous materials. There are micro cracks in the glaze, which allows moisture to penetrate into the pores of the ceramic and then freeze, expand and crack the material. This can be minimized by sealing your FINISHED mosaic with multiple applications of a tile and grout sealer from the local building material store. You can also prevent this damage by bringing you stepping stones and mosaic lawn  sculptures inside for the winter months.

Product Coverage / Letter Count

This product is not sold for area coverage, but there is about 0.2 square feet of total material, which is broken up an used as individual letters.  The letter count is more relevant and is as follows: A-9, B-2, C-2, D-7, E-12, F-2, G-3, H-2, I-10, J-1, K-1, L-4, M-2, N-7, O-7, P-2, Q-1, R-5, S-5,  T-4, U-2, V-1, W-2, X-1, Y-1, Z-1.

Compatibility

Tile thickness is just under 1/4 inch. The specimens measured were 7/32 inch thick, but this could vary by manufacturer batch, possible +/- 1/32 inch. The thickness  is actually ideal because most of our glass mosaic tile is about 1/8 inch (4mm), so the letters will stick out above this, giving the surface of your mosaic texture  and dimension.

Cutting Tile

These are not made to be cut. Instead, they are snapped with a gloved hand. Use a straight edge such as a ruler or the edge of a table to make sure the sheet  breaks cleanly in the flashing between the letters. Otherwise you might have jagged breaks that damage the letters.

Use in Mosaic Art

As discussed above, sealing with a tile and grout sealer is important for preventing freeze damage. When broken free from the sheets, the letters will still be  surrounded with some flat material at the base. This is flash from the mold/dye used to press the sheet and does not have to be removed. It should be covered  with grout when the mosaic is grouted.
