product description + credits

* this product makes up 0.25 pieces per square feet and comes in 1 pieces per box

slate is a sustainable, natural, highly durable product that comes in shades of black and grey. the tile is split on the natural grain to yield a cleft texture and matte surface providing a natural slip resistance. this tile is ideal for hard working areas like laundry rooms and entryways.

because the tile is cleaved along its natural grain, each piece varies slightly in thickness.

like most natural stone, slate requires sealing to prevent staining and help with repelling water. sealing slate will also enhance the deep dark grey tones found in this natural stone. we recommend using miracle 511 porous plus before grouting the tile, and after.

faq

what grout joint size, type, and color do you recommend?

clé recommends the use of mapei flexcolor cq tile grout and a 1/8" grout joint with this collection.

Grout color selection is always up to our client and/or their design professional. However, clé is often asked for our opinion on best grout selections for our tiles. And due to the large array of grout colors that are now available, clé would like to offer this general guideline on a foolproof grout color selection for any of your clé tiles.

  • First, have your professional tile contractor complete your tile installation, except for the grout portion.
  • Next, when ready to grout, ask your contractor to bring ALL grout color charts from his preferred grout manufacturers, for your review.
  • Lastly, choose a time of day when you are most pleased with the lighting in your space (either natural lighting, installed lighting or a blend of both). During that lighting and time of day, select the grout color that best matches your tile selection.

Note that the full Mapei Flexcolor CQ color catalogue contains 40 colors to choose from. Visit the Mapei website to view

Do you offer trim for your slate tile?

as with all of our stone tiles, we do not offer trim for our slate collection. trim is not a facet of completing your stone tile surfaces, however should you desire, exposed edges can be finished by your contractor to match the surface of the tiles or to create most forms of edge finishes.

What is shaling?

This is the process of the slate’s cleft surface to slough off during the first several months of floor (and sometimes, wall) use. This will not happen with every tile, just the tiles that have a section of loosened cleft surface. This process will only expose more slate stone underneath. This process is natural and is not a defect of the slate - but a natural response to wear and tear. It will finish once any loose portion of the slate’s cleft has come off.

can I use slate in the shower?

yes, but specific waterproofing precautions need to be taken, such as using a waterproof membrane under the tile and use of a penetrating sealer like Miracle 511 Porous plus. Penetrating sealers should be reapplied yearly. Please see our “resources” section below for more information.

how do I clean slate?

slate is chemically sensitive so only mild pH neutral cleaners should be used. Soapless cleaners are preferred because they minimize streaks and film. Mild, phosphate-free, biodegradable liquid dishwashing soaps or powders or stone soaps are acceptable if rinsing is thorough.

soap scum can be minimized in showers and baths by using a squeegee after each use and using liquid as opposed to bar soaps. To remove soap scum, clé recommends the use of Miracle Porcelain & Ceramic Tile Cleaner.

why do you suggest i order at least 15% more than my measurements?

industry standard suggests adding at least 15% overage due to tile cuts, potential breakage, or future repairs.
