Crackle Glaze Tile Question? We have the answers….

Our Crackle Glaze Tiles are still such a popular choice with our customers, we thought we would put together our most frequently asked questions along with all the answers you will need….

  • How many tiles do I need to order?
    When ordering always allow 10% extra on your order for cuts and wastage when ordering your tiles.
  • Do I need to seal my Crackle Glaze Tiles?
    If you are using your Crackle Glaze Tiles in a bathroom or kitchen we strongly recommend they are sealed with LTP Crackle Glaze Tile Sealer.

  • How do I seal my tiles?
    Ensure that the tile surface is clean and dry. Once the tiles have been fixed and before grouting apply one coat of sealer to the surface with a sponge or soft cloth and then buff immediately into the surface with a separate soft cloth. This should be done until all excess is removed. Leave for a minimum of two hours before grouting with normal grouts.
    Once the grouting is dry (min 24hrs) apply a second coat of the sealer to the surface also covering the grout joints. After 48 hours the surface can be cleaned as normal.
    Drying time – approx 30 – 40 minutes. Becomes fully effective after 48 hours.

  • How much LTP Crackle Glaze Sealer will I need?
    Each 500ml tin of LTP Crackle Glaze Sealer will cover 5sqm of tiles (2 coats).
  • Can I use Crackle Glaze Tiles in a Shower?
    Yes. Crackle Glaze Tiles are suitable for both showers and bath surrounds as long as they have been sealed as above.
  • Can I use a contrasting grout?
    e.g A grey grout with a White Chapel Crackle Glaze Tile?
    We strongly advise seeking the advice of a tiler if you wish to use a coloured or pigmented grout with lighter Crackle Glaze Tiles as this may result in the colour of the grout getting into the crackles on the surface of the tile.
    Before making any purchase please seek the advice of you tiler or contact our team on 01752 785623.

    We have crackle glaze tiles on our kitchen wall above the work surfaces. These were sealed with LTP Crackle Glaze Sealer by our tiler.
    Is sealing a once only exercise, or do the tiles need to be re-sealed annually?
    Please advise, regards,
    Howard Priestley

      Hi Howard,
      We recommend sealing your tiles before and after grouting and then every 2-3 years to keep them looking fantastic.
      Hope That Helps.
