Mosaic tile backsplashes have become quite popular in recent years—and for a good reason! They enhance any room with their luxurious and sophisticated designs, ranging from subtle patterns to funky, retro patterns. The wide array of tile patterns paired with the various finish offerings make these yield to endless possibilities, allowing you to customize your space in a multitude of ways.
But how are these beautiful tiles created? They’re created with a waterjet! A waterjet was invented back in the 1800s with the ability to shoot high-pressure water at 60,000 PSI (pounds per square inch)—which is strong enough to cut an anvil in half! Because of its strength, the waterjet was used in the United State mining industry. Since then, the very high-pressure jet of water has been used to cut through the tile with a combination of water and an abrasive. The power of the waterjet can be adjusted, and depending on the desired design, abrasive materials are sometimes used with the water for extra cutting power.
Waterjet mosaic spreads the magic and beauty of mosaics like no one else. Not only can the waterjet create one-of-a-kind tiles, but does so while remaining environmentally friendly—a win-win in our book! It has the ability to cut intricate designs without producing heat and minimal waste. One of the biggest benefits of a waterjet is its ability to cut the tile without causing damage to the material such as color changes or chipping.
