        Q:Can this be used as a swimming pool backsplash?
        by|Jun 23, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi. I have to emphasis that the pearl tile is not the ideal material for outdoor application. It's tested and proved that is good for bathroom or even pool where water contact frequently decoration, but it's limited to indoor. It's made of natural pearl and it's main element is calcium carbonate which is corroded to acid and alkali (the mild acid like shampoo won't get effect to it). We presume this corrosion was caused by the property of thin-set mortar that we used for application. No matter what kinds of glue that we take for installation, it should be neutral. We do have some projects using our tiles outdoor, it's been over a few years and have not received any complaint regarding deterioration. However, we do not stand positively with regard to how long it will last. One thing it's certain that it must be installed with neutral glue, maintain it by applying professional sealer regularly can extend it's durability. We recommend to use the glass resin tile in our collection which I am confident for outdoor use. If the client insist on the pearl tile, I would recommend the seamless one.

          Great product
          Beautiful tiles, and easy to install (we just used liquid nails). No grout required, although we "grouted" a few gaps with more liquid nails to maintain a smooth surface. Would definitely buy again.

            Gorgeous tiles!
            These genuine mother of pearl tiles are just lovely. They were 30% less expensive here than what my local tile store was selling them for. I had them professionally installed. It was a bit hard for even an experienced tile guy to get the seams between the tiles close enough, but any tiny gaps were easily filled with caulking. We used the peel and stick faux chrome edging from the same seller to finish off the edges, since there’s no way to use metal tile edging or border tiles, the mother of pearl material is too thin for that. It looks so high end and I get complimented on my backsplash all the time. Love them!

              Great looking and so easy to install!
              I have wanted to finish the backsplash in my kitchen for some time but did not know quite what to choose in order to do so. I decided that something with shine and texture would look great with the black granite countertops and darker cabinets. These mother of pearl shell tiles made perfect sense. I was so pleased at just how easy they were to install since they "interlock" on their edges and can be easily cut using a Dremel tool with a cutting disc. I edged them with a ceramic-backed stainless steel tile that complements both the appliances and the brushed nickel outlet plates. Instead of using thinset, I used Liquid Nails "Projects" Adhesive (LN-700) in tubes, dabbing the backside of the edge/end tiles and then running a thin bead across each line of the backs of the tiles. Not a lot of adhesive is required since the tiles are relatively thin and hold to the wall readily. When I needed to fit small tiles as filler, I cut them and used the adhesive then taped the front with painter's tape until each piece dried. The best thing about this tile installation is the lack of grout at the end for finishing. The tiles are close enough to where it's NOT needed. Small gaps (which are rare) can be filled with a very small amount of white caulk. I am so pleased with the results and highly recommend these tiles even to the beginner DIY-er.

                This tile was extremely thin and easily broken. We attempted multiple ways to get it to lay down properly but anytime we pushed on it, it would break.

                  It was falling apart. It was also defective because there was another piece cemented to the middle facing the wrong way.
