The hardest and most durable natural stone in our range, Granite is extremely hardwearing, making it a popular choice for flooring throughout the home.
Granite is formed from the slow crystallisation of molten magma cooling deep beneath the earth's surface and is an incredibly dense and watertight stone.
Please note this product is a natural stone and therefore you will find colour and pattern variations in the tiles due to the way the product is made. We recommend laying out your tiles before fixing to ensure you get a good mix of shades across the area. For very large areas please ask our experts in store for further advice.
Although granite is one of the hardest substances known to man, polished and unpolished Granite tiles will require sealing to prevent staining. Care should be taken not to use acid based cleaners as these will tarnish the shine of polished granite.
PREPARE: After grouting for an initial clean, use diluted residue remover for honed and polished stone. Allow the residue remover to sit on the tile at least 10 minutes to allow the grout residue to be broken down. The use of an emulsifying pad will aid with removal of grout residue. Sometimes, particularly on a textured surface, after using residue removers there is still some residue which may be due to the polymer within the grout. This needs to be softened with an alkaline detergent. Use Tile and Stone Stain Remover in the same way as the residue remover.
PROTECT: 2 coats of polised protector are required. Apply with either a brush or a roller, allow each coat to dry thoroughly.
CLEAN: To prevent the build up of deposits it is important that the correct cleaner is used, to maintain the tiles we suggest Tile & Stone Cleaner diluted.
Acidic or highly Alkaline cleaners are not recommended for maintenance of this tile as they can damage the life of the sealer.
