Metal, Glass, Glazed Ceramic and Porcelain Products. These products have differences in color, shape, size, moisture absorption, finish, and texture. This should be considered in the customer’s purchase decision and intended use of the product selected. Variations of these characteristics occur between production lots of the same product type from manufacturing processes. All sizes are nominal and may vary. Finish trim pieces may vary slightly in color. Glazing on relief tiles will vary in thickness and may appear darker and lighter in different areas of the tile.
Glazed products are subject to crazing. Crazing is not a defect nor does it affect the durability of the products. It is a characteristic of the manufacturing process. Some tiles are inducted to craze to produce a crackle finish. These tiles should be sealed with a penetrating sealer prior to grouting and should not be used on counter surfaces. Regular resealing is necessary.
