The Saltillo is unique, irregular, functional and expressive. Tiles vary in texture, Not perfectly flat, they have chipped edges, craters, and from time to time you may run into tiles with animal tracks. A high percentage of the batches of Saltillo tiles are subject to "lime pops". Craters or lime pops are caused by alkaline deposits, these are usually inhibited and may be stopped by sealing the tile with a penetrating sealer. Sealers penetrate into the lime pocket, demystifying it, keeping water out and therefore preventing the lime pop.
Substantial variations are expected for all Saltillo tiles. Size, random color and texture differences will be present from piece to piece. Final installation will be unique. Therefore, it is recommended that the entire range is viewed and arranged before installation.
