Questions & Answers

How many in the case

Asked by: Von
10 tiles per case
Answered by: airbear

How many are in a case?

How many are in a case?
Asked by: ugh
I "just" bought a case of 18 x 18 MSI Absolute Black tiles from Home Depot, and had them delivered to my local store June 1st. They came in a box of 4 tiles, delivered from another location, and were repacked 2 to a box with foam sprayed around to protect them. I suspect that's done since a box of 4 would be VERY HEAVY. I bought the smaller 12 x 12 MSI Absolute Black tiles earlier this year, they came in a box of 5.

Are the edges beveled or finished in some manner (e.g. honed) so that they are smooth?

Are the edges beveled or finished in some manner (e.g. honed) so that they are smooth?
Asked by: Int1
They are smooth not beveled. Not shiny like the top. We used to tile a bar nitch and trimmed it strips of tile to hide edges. Turned out beautifully!

Absolute Black 12 in. x 12 in. Honed Granite Floor and Wall Tile (10 sq. ft./case) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 93.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rich look even in small bathroom I had the 12x12 absolute black professionally installed on the floor when my bathroom was renovated. It's laid out as a square, not diamond and has non-sanded charcoal grout (also from HD). I used impregnator 511 to seal the grout (also at HD). Bathroom is an irregular 8x5. I was hesitant when it was suggested by my HD designer to get granite flooring (especially black) since I wasn't sure how it would hold up but I did research and checked with others who had granite and I've had it for 5 months now and love it! The bathroom looks rich without being overdone. I thought it would make the bathroom look small but it doesn't. Have walked on it with heals, boots, sneakers, socks & bare feet and the dog walks on the floor also, I have not noticed any scratches. I do have a black bath rug in front of the tub and vanity (but they are removed when I have company).The down side is that black shows everything! The smallest water mark or bit of dirt. Must be vacuumed often. Clean with a damp cloth or mild detergent, I use Granite & Marble countertop cleaner + protector wipes by Dupont - I checked with Dupont, they can be used on the floor.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from ***MUST READ*** This product is doctored granite. It is garbage! I bought this tile for a counter top installation. After one week of use, there are gray spots all over the place, there are also several rings the granite from glasses sitting out on the countertop. The issue is called "doctored granite" (which i unfortunately learned about after the fact). Cheaper granite imported from India and China include dyes and resins to make the "absolute black" color. These dyes are easily removed with a slightly acidic solution or simple long exposure to water. There is an easy way to test for this. Simply apply a drop of lemon or lime juice on the tile and wait 5 seconds and wipe it off. If the tile has a grey spot where the juice was, you have a doctored tile. This product is absolutely a doctored tile and my entire tiled counter top job looks terrible only a week after installation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Took 3 purchases to get desired tiles I bought these tiles for my kitchen countertop (primarily the 36" peninsula). I received several tiles with chipped/missing corners and it took about 3 weeks to get all the product I needed. My intention was to use 12" tiles (same brand) for the rest of the counter but because they are different thicknesses I stayed with the 18" tiles. While cutting and dry-laying the tiles, I noticed a few were warped. I tried using these pieces for areas that needed cutting. The warping was problematic and required a lot of extra detail work. These tiles cut great, very smoothly and look really nice. They're about 17lbs each and exactly 1/2" per my caliper. The 12's are exactly 13/32ths, so it's very noticeable. The backs of the tiles are "rough cut" and not smooth like some tiles. Hope this helps!

I couldn't seem to find one that was deep or actual black from Home Depot, but this one hit the mark! Although having a little debate with my UPS delivery dispatcher, because of the 60LB weight per case (Feels like a condensed star), the packages were delivered and came very protected (no tiles even chipped). I have not installed it yet, but the tile itself is beautiful. Love the slightly beveled edges, the even cuts, and the shiny slick deep black surface. I have been testing a few on my kitchen counter and they do great with cold and super hot water, no stains and very easily cleaned. Before I saw this tile I was just considering getting cement or porcelain tiles, but real granite is always better and makes a huge difference for look and resale value.
