How many in the case

10 tiles per case

How many are in a case?

Asked by ugh March 12, 2018

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?

Answers

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!

What is the thickness

Thank you for your interest in the MSI Absolute Black Tile. This tile is 1/2" thick. Good luck with your project!

What color grout for Black Gslaxy? I want the blackest black.

Asked by Mary November 29, 2018

Answers

Super black grout is hard to find. I recommend either using a cement stain/sealer after mortar or grout is down or you can mix in mortar dye's to get the color you want. Time consuming but worth it.

Can I order just one piece of these tiles, I do not need 9 square feet of it, i only need one 18x18 piece. Also, how thick is the tile?

Asked by Debbie February 13, 2013

Answers

These tiles are exactly 1/2" thick. For every order, you get 2 boxes with 2 tiles per box with foam surroundings. If you exchange or return any, you need the full order.

This is my 4th try at getting a tile in the price range I wanted. 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.

Beautiful on my hearth. Very heavy and elegant looking. Very happy with it. Also a very reasonable upgrade, less than $200 for 12 feet of hearth that only took a couple of days to put in.

If I were buying this tile for construction purposes I give it high marks, however I buy your 12x12 and 18x18 for my laser engraving business and I laser etch photos and plaques into them. With that being said I find the tile to be extremely inconsistent in how its made. Some tile I receive are perfect and engrave great word plaques others have way too many "flakes" when I remove the top glossy coating to expose the stone and it can not be used for photos. Between 12s and 18s I have purchased over 2 hundred tiles for my business, but I now have too find a new supplier for photos. Also this last batch of 18x18 was almost 1/4" out of square.

I am extremely pleased with this product. When I decided to get it I was told it would not be good to use in the kitchen or laundry room. I love the rich look this absolute black granite tile adds to both the kitchen and the laundry room. It is the best choice I made.

The black granite is a highly durable product that I can use creating various art. I own a Co2 Laser engraver which enables me to engrave practically anything from photographs, logos or just plain text.
