Mexican K026 Jet black
A black glass mosaic tile with a high gloss finish
Tiles from Kolorines, our Mexican supplier, measure ±20 x 20 x 4mm, and almost always have two smooth faces - ie no ridges on the underside. But sometimes we receive a batch where this is not the case, so please check if this matters to you. Soak the tiles off their paper backing by putting them in a basin of warm water for a few minutes. Dry them off in the air or using an old towel. Use Leponitt or other wheeled cutters for cutting them. These tiles are suitable for indoor use on vertical surfaces. They can be used indoors on floors, but these must only have light foot traffic and glass tiles should be used in combination with ceramic or other tiles in order to give sufficient slip-resistance. Our Mexican tiles can be used on vertical surfaces outdoors, but should not be used on exterior floors because of the increased likelihood of slipperiness in damp conditions. Please note that colour often varies quite considerably from batch to batch of glass tiles. If you are working on a large project you should consider ordering sufficient tiles in one go.

Please note that in order to save on postage costs I will often cut a sheet of tiles in half so that it fits in a smaller parcel. If it’s important to you to receive your sheets whole, please let me know. NB that this only really applies to small orders. If you order more than four or five sheets, they will almost always arrive whole.
