GlasStone is a style in the SeaStone Product Line and is a proprietary blend of recycled custom colored glass. The glass aggregate ranges in various pebble sizes up to 1″ to show a nominal 8-10% field concentration per piece. The range and size of the glass is expected to differ from piece to piece to create a natural appearance of surf washed sea glass commonly found on beaches. In use, it is typically added to enhance various areas of a project color scheme such as borders or trim or may be used fully in design. There are four standard unique glass blends which may be added to the styles offered in the SeaStone Collection. Like the other styles GlasStone reveals the beauty of shells and glass through a high quality, machine finished surface and may be designed for interior or exterior applications. It may be used also in design with our Custom Series of specialty shell or the Sea Creature Fossil Collection.

Installation + Maintenance
RECOMMENDED INSTALLATION METHODS: SeaStone 3/4” – 1” Flooring products are designed for standard industry masonry installation and installed in a manner similar to stone or marble, using comparable setting techniques. Latex modified adhesives and modified grouts are recommended to install our products per industry standards. Method of application will vary to suit the specific type of condition. We allow a minimal one eighth (1/8”) to one fourth (1/4”) joint space for joining most pieces.
Sealers are recommended before and after grout application to prevent staining. Only periodic resealing is necessary. Consult floor care product manufacturer for specific instructions and recommendations. Apply to clean and dry surfaces only. Sealers should be U/L listed as “slip resistant”. Please consult floor care product manufacturer for instructions on Polishing SeaStone after installation in order to meet the requirements of a safe walking surface of 0.5 anti-slip coefficient of friction. General aftercare requires cleaning with a neutral cleaner that has a Ph near 7 and that is free from harmful alkali, acids, etc. A non-detergent cleaner such as Spic and Span, which does not leave a soap film, may be used. We do not recommend pressure cleaning on exterior SeaStone product. Treat strains as soon as possible.
