Marble Mosaic Floor Tile – Due to the nature of the cement and the pigments, these mosaics may have small differences in colors and variation of tones. We recommend that before mixing, mosaics of different boxes are mixing to balance the differences in color and tone. When they are removed from their boxes, some mosaics may have a white surface residue. Called cement efflorescence, which is nothing more than mineral salts of the same cement.
These minerals can be removing during the cleaning and polishing process after installation. Sealing marble mosaic floor tile generally inhibit efflorescence from returning. As the installation conditions vary, the installer is responsible for ensuring that their floors are properly installing and sealing. When installing the floor, be sure to do on a flat, level, stable cement foundation that has already been the cure. It is very important that the base has been the cure before installing the floor. That is, it is not very new since the moisture of the base and mineral salts could surface and cause efflorescence on the mosaic surface.
