PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS SOLID BRONZE V16 tiles are cast in solid bronze using techniques that originated five thousand years ago. V16 offers two types of bronze: Traditional Bronze, the type most often used for casting fine sculpture, and White Brronze, which contains nickel and has a lighter, cooler tone. (White Bronze tiles are identified with a “W” on the back.)

VARIATION COLOR: When the tiles arrive on the job site, they may be a bit lighter in color than the older, patinaed showroom samples. In addition, there will be some variation in their initial brightness since the final polishing is done by hand. During installation, the grout will polish the tiles slightly, lessening the variation from tile to tile. TEXTURE: Our casting and finishing techniques purposely encourage differences in texture from tile to tile.

APPLICATIONS you can use V16 tiles in any application: wet or dry, indoors or out, on walls or in floors - even in high-traffic locations.

INSTALLATION • Use thin set or epoxy adhesive. • Use sanded grout. During the final clean-up, remove all grout residue from the ties’ recesses. Grout release is not necessary. • Sealing is not necessary. • You can cut V16 tiles with any metal-cutting saw. Most hardware stores sell abrasive metal-cutting blades for use with circular or miter saws. If yo have only a few cuts to make, you can use a hacksaw. • You can apply a light coat of paste wax to slow the natural patina process.

PATINA Bronze becomes more beautiful with age. Over time, V16 tiles develop a rich, mellow patina. You can see the patina begin to appear within a few weeks, and watch in mature over the years.

CLEANING You can clean V16 tiles with any common household cleaner. As with any polished surface, avoid harsh abrasives and acid-based cleaners.

Our Traditional Bronze firest becomes warmer and more golden, and ultimately maures to a deep, luminous brown. Our White Bronze has a slightly greyer tone at each stage. When you use our tiles in a floor, bright time-worn paths appears as the high points of the tiles are polished by your gootsteps. Like the shiny nose of a well-loved statue, these are beautiful rewards that come only with age. In wet locations the patina may eventually show hints of soft green. Outdoors, the patina process is accelerated and ultimately an opaque green patina will develop. We believe our tiles look best with a natural patina; however, you can keep V16 tiles bright - even in a wet location - by cleaning them regularly witha soft abrasive pad, such as Scotch Brite. In addition, you can restore the original brightness to patinaed tiles with a mide abrasive or with brass polish.
