Engineered for high traffic areas…
these glass tiles meet and exceed industry-testing standards.


(Joplin, MO – March 2, 2004)  Bison Coating & Supply, in cooperation with Rich Neely of US Photo Coatings, is proud to announce the release of the first ever, fully tested, commercial floor grade glass tile for sublimation. In development for over one year, these proprietary glass tiles were designed for commercial applications on floor, walls, countertops and swimming pools.

Testing performed by the Tile Council of America proved these glass tiles meet ANSI and ASTM standards for commercial wall and floor applications. They passed freeze-thaw testing, as well as resistance to chemical substances including all common household and cleaning materials, swimming pool chemicals, hydrochloric acid solution and potassium hydroxide. Additionally, the floor tiles' surface has a coefficient of friction that exceeds OSHA standards and a breaking strength that surpasses floor standards by more than 700 percent.

 "By imaging these tiles on the back, we have overcome the longtime problem of durability of a sublimated floor tile" says Paul Whitehill, co-owner of Bison Coating & Supply, adding "coupled with the waterproof and highly durable coatings developed by Rich Neely, we can now safely install these tiles in any number of commercial applications never before available to the sublimation industry.

 Additionally, this proprietary glass tile is custom manufactured with additional UV inhibitors imbedded in the glass itself.  Initial testing has proved that this tile has the best UV fade protection of any sublimated tile available on the market today. These tiles are now available in 6"x6", 6"x8", 8"x10" and 12"x12".  Other sizes will be made available in the near future.

 Bison Coating & Supply now has available for immediate shipment glass, tumbled stone, porcelain, glossy and satin hard coat tiles from their new state of the art facility in Joplin, MO.
