8mm (5/16 inch)

Traditional Ottoman tiles made from recycled glass (mostly windowpane glass that it powdered, filtered and then melted) and colored with natural minerals and colour oxides. Each tile is stamped into individually pressed shapes rather than the common method of molding. Each tile is annealed through a linear kiln to become the strongest and most durable mini glass mosaic available with excellent color fastness and may be cut easily and accurately using wheeled nippers without crumbling or waste. The smooth, even surface reflects and refracts light evenly to produce vivid color and life and the range of shades and tones make this product an excellent choice for all levels of mosaic. Guide to finishes and textures 1) Standard glass tiles have a glossy impervious surface that is easy to clean and reflects light. The colors appear strong and vivid. 2) Pearlised or iridized tiles are treated with an acid based wash that creates a permanent oil on water finish that refracts into multiple colors. The pearlescent or pearl finishes may be slightly softer than iridized or iridescent finishes. 3) Matte finished glass tiles have a textured surface that diffuses light so that colors appear softer and more naturalistic. This finish is also particularly useful for floors as it has non slip properties. * 8mm square (slightly larger than 1/4 inch) *1/8 inch thick (the same thickness of most commonly used vitreous and stained glass tesserae) *1,100 tiles = ± 1 square foot. *1000g (2.2lbs) contains ±1,600 tiles or 1.45 square feet. *50g contains ±85 tiles *Recycled sintered glass mosaic *UV and Frost resistant *Molded for consistent sizing *Can be cut cleanly with wheeled nippers (very little crumbling or splintering) *Each colour can come in 1 of 3 finishes: Standard (Glossy), Matte, Iridized.
