The tiles are “Cast in Questech”, a proprietary composite that uses premium metal or natural stone. Each tile comes from an original hand carved design.
The tiles will vary naturally from piece to piece. However, they do not vary from lot to lot like ceramic tile, and will always coordinate beautifully together.
They can be used on any interior wall, including wet areas. The tiles can also be used as a counter edge molding. Tiles are not suitable for countertop surfaces or exterior installations. Designated floor products may be used on both interior walls and residential/light commercial floors.
Tiles that are “Cast in Questech” can be installed using standard tile setting methods (polymer fortified thin-set, epoxy and mastic). They cut easily with a wet saw or a spiral saw and can be drilled with a high-speed drill. Do not score and snap.
To ensure proper bond, high temperature installations might require epoxy adhesive and grout. Examples where epoxy is recommended includes around some kitchen cook-tops, fireplace surrounds and steam showers. See installation instructions for more information.
Questech tiles are protected by Q-Seal, a factory-applied, permanent sealer that is guaranteed to be water and stain resistant for as long as you own your home. The sealer also provides abrasion resistance and includes an anti-bacterial ingredient – Ultra-Fresh®, that inhibits the growth of mold and mildew.
Stone sealer cannot penetrate or adversely affect the Questech Lifetime Sealer. Simply wipe excess sealer off the piece.
The surface can be cleaned with any ordinary household cleaner. Harsh chemicals like bleach should be wiped away shortly aﬅer application. Do not use abrasive implements for cleaning, for example, scouring pads and steel wool are not recommended.
