Iridescent glass tiles offer a unique shimmering reflection that adds beauty and drama to any surface. The glass has an opal rainbow appearance and has been used for thousands of years. In fact, the ancient Egyptians used glass to make wine glasses, jugs, and flasks.
Wondering how iridescent glass gets its opalized shimmer? Metallic compounds, such as tin or lead oxides, are added to the glass. The effect is also achieved by spraying the surface using lead chloride or stannous chloride and then reheating the glass.
If you’re looking to incorporate this glass into your home, the best way to achieve the perfect look is by using iridescent tiles from Pooltile.ca. Our tiles are sure to look amazing in any room in your home.

We need a good cold weather resistant tile and grout idea for waterline area of a large older in ground pool that needs to be re-tiled this spring.
Hi! All of our tiles are suitable for use in cold and hot climates. It is very important to use a high-quality epoxy grout when performing the installation, this will ensure the tiles do not ‘pop’ off the wall when there is a freeze. You can get more information here:

I have iridescent tiles and the calcium has built up and it’s impossible to clean. Using a pumace stone is effective at removing the calcium but also removes the iridescence. I suppose anything beneath the surface will remain looking good, but the water line will suffer.
Hi Bob! Litokol sells a glass mosaic cleaner that will help remove the calcium buildup on your pool tiles without damaging the iridescence. It’s called Litoclean Evo: https://www.litokol.it/en/detergents-and-surface-treatment-products/395-litoclean-evo.html
