About This Product

Add lasting elegance to your home with this Rustique Earth Gauged Slate Floor and Wall Tile from MSI. Crafted from high-quality slate, its multicolored design with pale gold-black undertones complements a wide range of decors. Because it's made for indoor commercial and residential use, the tile is perfect for kitchen and bathroom walls and floors. It has water absorption of more than 0.5% but less than 3%. This tile is GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified and GREENGUARD Children and Schools Certified. Note: Inspect all tiles before installation. Natural stone products inherently lack uniformity and are subject to variation in color, shade, finish, etc. It is recommended to blend tiles from different boxes when installing. Natural stones may be characterized by dry seams and pits that are often filled. The filling can work its way out and it may be necessary to refill these voids as part of a normal maintenance procedure. All natural stone products should be sealed with a penetrating sealer. Vendor disclaims any liabilities after installation.

Q:Can you install this tile over existing wall tile ? If I sand the old tile, clean, apply Redhuard, butter each piece then apply thinset?
by|May 12, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Yes, you can install this slate tile over existing wall tile by sanding the old tile, cleaning it, applying Redguard or a similar waterproofing membrane, buttering each piece of slate, and then applying thinset. Ensure that the existing tile surface is structurally sound and properly prepared for adhesion. However, we always recommend it as a best practice to check with a professional installer when seeking personalized guidance on the sustainability of materials in a specific application.

    Q:I sealed and did everything to the Slates they do not even last a year and start to flake and crack. They are on the Front Stairs and use no chemicals. MSI recommends just sealing and no chemicals. Slate is supposed to last.

    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  If this slate tiles are cracking, it may be due to improper back buttering during installation. Air pockets can form if the back buttering is not done correctly, leading to cracking. Regarding flaking, slate is a naturally layered material. If there were any loose layers, they could have caused the flaking. Thank you for your interest in MSI Peacock 12 in. x 12 in.

      Q:Can you use these tiles in a shower?
      by|May 10, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Yes, this slate tile is suitable for shower use and is commonly utilized in such settings. The surface is inherently skid-resistant to help prevent slipping, and it performs well in both wet and dry conditions, whether utilized at home or in a commercial setting. However, kindly ensure to apply sealant prior to grouting and reapply sealant after grouting to maintain its effectiveness. Thank you for your interest in Montauk Black 12 in. x 24 in.

          Flake and Crack
          I did everything that MSI recommended which was to seal them and no chemicals. Twice a year they are flaking and crack or peel. Slate should last for decades these cannot stay 6 months. I wrote to MSI ask for a representative to come and see them for themselves. Sent them pictures, bad enough they are not the same thickness, but this cracking and flaking is not acceptable.

            Worth the effort
            We used the MSI montauk black 4x12 slate in our kitchen. It was a ton of work to clean, inspect, cut, seal, lay, grout, and clean these, but we are very happy with the results. We couldn’t do wood floor in this room, and I was worried about it looking too cold, but the flooring is so pretty in person. It doesn’t look quite as “warm” in photos.

              The tiles didn’t quite look like the picture…just looked like smeared white on it

              The stones are flaky. I was trying to match existing slate tiles. They do but the first box they were all broken and I was able to return them. This second box was better but it still had 1 broken piece that I was able to use for a cut. Looks great but would rather buy in store if possible.

              Always wanted to do a slate floor. So glad I did! Tile came without issues and within a few days of ordering. No chips or broken pieces. I did the black but looks more bluish black which is what I wanted. Did Mapei Timberwolf grout. Beautiful and classic!! Love it.

              Just know, Ahead of time
              These look great in the shower in the bathroom I constructed, but let me tell you these tile are not 12 x 12 or anywhere near close take it very from a half inch stick to almost a quarter inch thick. They could be almost a half inch difference in size from one side to the other so if you’re looking for perfectly straight lines, this is not a towel for you, but neither is gauged Slate tile

                  Hot Garbage
                  I had to redo a small section and I ordered these tiles because they look like a close match to what was already there. I ordered one box and it came with five tiles in it only one of which was usable. All five were the same pattern instead of assorted like the picture says and three out of five had hideous mill marks on the top and one came cracked to pieces. Also they are 2x as thick as normal tiles making them useless for my repair job and the thickness varies quite a bit. Very poor quality.

                    Mixed bag
                    Looks nice and has nice texture, but they were delivered in cheap boxes that were pretty much disintegrating and a third of them were cracked or chipped. Tiles are all powdery and need to be washed. Biggest issue was that many of the tiles were off in one or both dimensions by 1/16 and some up to and 1/8. Made my straight pattern difficult, although it ultimately got done and the final result is pretty solid.
