 Note :  

These products are made of natural stones. The colors and shades of the tiles may vary within cases. Mix tiles from different cases to gain optimal blending. Install with mortar thin-set or quality tile adhesive. 

In order to remove dust, wipe the surface with a damp cloth after the installation. Wait till the tile gets dry. Spray or spread evenly the stone sealer on the tile. A premium penetrating sealer can be applied for a natural look. A stone enhancing sealer (wet look) is recommended to shine and highlight the features of stone.

Some good quality solvent based sealer can be purchased through Major home renovation stores. High-Gloss Rock Solid Wet-look Sealer is a good example of that.

 

Caution:  Avoid exposing the tiles to water/rain or getting wet. 

 

Maintenance
