How to install concrete tiles?

Concrete Terrazzo tiles can, for the most part, be installed like other types of tiles. There are a few points to be aware of:

Concrete tile is a bit heavier than ceramic tile. This can be due to the thickness of the tile. Larger natural stone tiles are the same thickness as our specialised concrete tiles being 20mm thick.

Concrete tile should be handled with care prior to and during installation. Avoid stacking flat on top of each other as they will crack, they should be stacked upright on the edge of the tiles and avoid dropping them.They should also be carried upright especially the large format tiles.

Concrete can stain easily in its natural form to prevent staining, it is advisable to seal concrete tile surfaces with a penetrating sealer before grouting. This will also make it easier to spread the grout and assist in easy cleanup. To provide Lasting protection from environment elements and stains there are two main types of Concrete Sealers as follows.

There are two types of sealants we offer:

Option A : Topical/surface coating which is stain and acid resistant but can melt if a very hot pot placed directly on it or can be scratched if someone intentionally scars it. In both of these situations repair is very simple just reapply. It is UV stable so will not yellow. This gives a satin sheen finish. More commonly used for white concrete as these stain easily. Sort of like a really good quality varnish but for concrete. This does however create a sheen finish and is therefore slippery when wet like a porcelain tile.

Option B : Permeable coating seeps into the concrete until the surface is saturated. This contains various sealant properties and creates a protective layer that prevents liquids from going into the concrete. The upkeep is to simply apply cobra wax to maintain the surface. The benefit is that concrete can take very high heats and the coating and wax will melt but reform when the heat is removed. The layer cannot be scratched off as it is in the concrete. This is better for the darker concrete and flooring as they show less staining or acid etching. We have used this in many retail outlets with great success. This is sometimes preferred as one maintains the raw natural beauty of the polished stone and the non slip properties.

You should always test a coloured grout on a spare piece of concrete tile to be sure that the grout pigment does not stain the tile surface. This is advisable when using brightly coloured or darker grouts to lighter coloured cement tiles.

For installation of concrete tiles use a name-brand fortified thin-set or tile mastic that is recommended for the surface you are mounting the tile to. Use a good quality product and it is advisable to mix a bonding agent into the tile grout or apply directly to the surface the tile will be mounted to and to the back of the tile itself. Make sure both the tile and the surface to be tiled are free from loose dust and grit. As the grout will bond to the loose dust and grit then come loose.

It is a good idea at the beginning of the tile installation, remove a tile and inspect the coverage of adhesive you are getting on the back. It should be covering 90% to 100% of the surface.

Due to the weight of concrete, when installing on walls you will need to support each tile to avoid slipping. One can also mount with mechanical joints. These can be affixed to the tile itself and attached to the wall.
