I believe there were 16 in a case

The specs state a DCOF rating of less than 0.42, but prior comments by a Merola state the DCOF is 0.49. Can you verify the correct one?

Very nice tile, I have it in my bathroom. I'm not sure regarding the DCOF rating but it's not slippy. They make the same tile in ceramic and its thinner and it's a little more slippery, the porcelain is better and thicker.

These tiles are very smooth and become slippery when wet. I would not recommend for outdoor use.

Answer

Hi, Lee! Our Arte White is suitable for shower floor installations as it is slip-resistant and ADA compliant. Though this tile is glazed, it has a low sheen(matte) surface, which also helps with slip resistance. If you have any further questions about the tile, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Is it recommended to use epoxy grout with this product?

Asked by AG April 16, 2019

No need to use epoxy grout. We used a sanded grout with 1/8" lines. Worked like a charm.

This is absolutely gorgeous. Not as busy as everyone I talked to thought it would be and really makes the room pop. I put it in my kitchen and used dark grey grout and quarter inch spacers. I have white cabinets with black hardware.

On a few of the tiles the design didn’t quite match up. It’s not a big issue, but if you’re a perfectionist, it could be irritating. Otherwise, I love it.
by Sarah
Response from MerolaTile Customer CareMar 12, 2020
Hi! Thank you for sharing your feedback of our Arte White and we’re glad that you like the product. Our Arte White is designed to mimic traditional encaustic cement tiles where a lack of perfect uniformity is the inherent nature of the product. These slight imperfections lend authenticity and character to every installation. If you wish to avoid any misalignments, you may select individual pieces for consistency while dry laying your pattern, and electing to use a wider grout line can even out any mismatches. We hope you are satisfied with your installation and encourage you to please give us a call at (800)-963-7652 if you have any further questions or concerns.
