Electra Sail

Electra Sail is a colorful new addition to Stone Source’s popular series of large-format, modern, glazed porcelain tiles. Inspired by encaustic cement tile, the 3/8’’-thick tiles are oversized hexagons (measuring 13.5’’ nominal) centered by a circular arc triangle. Once installed, the curved lines on the tile form various geometric patterns on floors and walls.

Electra Sail has a matte finish and a slightly patinaed look throughout each piece. It comes in a range of hues with contrasting line colors: Lightning (white with black lines), Mercury (gray with white lines), Midnight (black with white lines), Neptune (navy blue with white lines), Galaxy (hunter green with white lines), Rose (pink with white lines), Taupe (taupe with white lines), and Cosmos (black with gold lines).

Made in Italy, Electra Sail is a low-maintenance product for exterior cladding, wet areas, interior walls and floors, and heavy commercial traffic. This material has relatively high abrasion resistance (7 or higher on the Mohs scale), is virtually non-porous, and is suitable for all exterior applications where freeze-thaw cycles are a concern.

ABRASION RESISTANCE

High

This material has relatively high abrasion resistance. It rates as a 7 or higher on the Mohs scale. Quartzite or granite typically fall into this range. This material is less likely to scratch than marble, limestone, onyx, slate, etc.

ABSORPTION

Low

This material is virtually non-porous. No sealer is required and it is less likely to stain.

ACID SENSITIVITY

Minimal

This material is minimally sensitive to acids. It will not acid etch or lose its surface sheen when exposed to acidic liquids such as lemons or tomatoes.

FREEZE-THAW

All Exteriors

Due to this material's Minimal or Moderate Absorption rating, its Abrasion Resistance rating, color fastness and tensile strength, this material is suitable for all exterior applications where freeze-thaw cycles are a concern. Use TCNA standards for setting in exteriors and consult an engineer regarding fastening systems and tensile strength required for your project.
