Description

MORJORecycled Glass TRIANGLE Tiles by MORJO are sold loose by the 1/2 pound (approximately 115+ pieces), which covers slightly over 1/3 of a square foot with a standard grout gap of 1/16 inch. These tiles have a glossy finish, and the glass has solid color throughout (and not just on the tops or bottoms.) They are opaque when mounted on an opaque surface.

WARNING: COLOR NAMES

The Triangles use the same colors names as Morjo 12mm square tiles, but the colors are not the same for the current batch of Yellow and the Cyan Blues. Look at the pictures. Yellow is a little greenish, and the Spring Green Light is almost a yellow. The Cyan Blues have hues that are more pewter-ish than desired. Other colors (with less difficult pigments) are spot on. Slight batch variations can always impact matching with square tile colors. Do not assume exact matches. -Joe Moorman 09/10/2019.

Material

The recycled glass is a homogeneous material that cuts cleanly and predictably using the Wheel-bladed Mosaic Glass Cutter. They are hard and durable and UV-resistant and can be used for the exteriors of commercial buildings. The fusing process for making these tiles from powdered recycled glass is referred to as “warm glass” or “enamel glass” or “pate de verre.”

Coverage

Each 1/2-pound bag of about 115+ tiles covers a little over 1/3 of a square foot assuming a standard grout gap of 1/16 inch.

Grout Gap?

Note that dry indoor mosaics do not have to be grouted (and thus you can simply mount the tiles tightly together), but outdoor and wet mosaics must have grout to prevent water from penetrating behind the tiles. The best way to ensure that the gaps between the tiles is to leave a 1/16-inch gap instead of pressing them tightly together, and this point seems counterintuitive to some people. Consider this: you can never mount them so closely together that water can’t penetrate it, but you can accidentally put them so close that grout doesn’t get adequately pressed into the crack during the grouting process.

Compatibility

These tiles have a NOMINAL thickness of 1/8 inch (4mm), which is the same nominal thickness as most of the glass tile we sell. All tile varies by batch, but any variance in thickness should be irrelevant to most users. You can use these with other brands of recycled glass and even vitreous glass, although the graininess of some vitreous colors might not look good when combined with the homogeneous glassiness of recycled glass tiles.

Cutting Recycled Glass Triangle Tile

Recycled glass cuts like butter using the Mosaic Glass Cutters without creating a lot slivers or cutting waste. This makes them ideal for micromosaic or rendering small details in larger work.
