Vetrissimo Metallic Glass | Glass Mosaic
The Metallic Glass series is a completely new take on glass tile mosaics. Different metallic glazes are applied to the glass, including the surface of the glass (overglazing), to create elegant blends. The colors in the series are chameleons that complement virtually any tile as accents and that can be used in entire areas as features. The special application that creates the rich metallic feel creates shiny and matte areas including different effects like small abrasions and speckling. All are inherent characteristics of this product and add to the final look.
Pieces with underglazing and pieces with overglazing are mixed together creating extra depth. Individual tiles are approximately ⅜” x 1⅛”.
Metallic Glass Sticks
Metallic glazes are applied to the surface of the glass (overglazing). Individual tiles are approximately ½” X 2¼”.

Usage & Installation
Metallic Glass is not suitable for floor applications. It is suitable for interior walls including walls that get some moisture, but should not be used in steam showers, saunas, or any area submerged in water. Do not use solvents, acid detergents or abrasive cleaners.
Only use white adhesives with high adhesion and elasticity which are especially recommended for installing glass. Make sure to get 100% coverage. To avoid trowel marks and shadows showing through the glass after installation, smooth out any trowel marks with the flat edge of the trowel. All substrates should be properly reinforced to be sure there is no movement. Wood studs need to be dry and properly braced with a minimum depth of 3 1/2”. For mortar installations, the mortar bed has to be cured (less than 2% humidity) and has to have proper reinforcing. Please refer to the TCNA HANDBOOK for more specific information regarding installation of glass tile.
Glass tile may be susceptible to scratching in handling and installation, as well as use. Tile may not be perfectly flat or square. It is important to mix tiles within each carton and from several cartons to get a proper blend of variation. Expect variation of color from production run to production run.
