DECORATIVE TILE
This ColorBody™ porcelain produced with micro powders is both durable and
beautiful. Available in three surfaces – polished, unpolished and textured, this
TruEdge™ rectified and modular line offers unique design possibilities by combining
multiple surfaces and sizes. The modern liner created from cut tiles in each of
the three surfaces serves as a decorative accent. With the attractive price point,
Decorum is a great choice for large installations.

• F loor tile and mosaic tile are suitable for exterior applications in freezing and non-freezing climates when proper installation methods are followed.
• Wall tile is suitable for exterior applications in non-freezing climates only.
• Special Installation Requirement: For proper bonding, medium bed mortar should be utilized in installing tiles with a dimensional length size greater than 20 x 20, large rectangles or
tiles with greater dimensional thickness than normal. Back buttering tiles of this nature in the installation process will also assure proper coverage for bonding.
• Wall field tile not recommended for floor applications.

At American Olean, we never stop searching for smart, new solutions within
our industry. So, we’re proud to be among the first to join the Tile Council of
SM
North America in testing our products with DCOF AcuTest , a new industry
standard for measuring the dynamic coefficient of friction (DCOF). The new
standard assesses products suitability for the commercial environment and
the specific usability needs of the application.
A M e a s ur e of F rictio n
In layman’s terms, friction is the force that resists the sliding motion of one
surface against another. Contaminants, such as liquids, can change this value.
There are two types of friction: static (SCOF) and dynamic (DCOF). SCOF is
the ratio of forces necessary to start two surfaces sliding. This is what the
former ASTM C1028 static test measured. DCOF is the ratio of forces
necessary to keep two surfaces sliding.
O ut w it h t h e old . I n w it h t h e n e w.
The methodology used by DCOF AcuTest has become the new industry
standard because it’s the most accurate way to determine whether or not a
product is suitable for a commercial environment.
• Just as the speed of a car can be measured in mph and kph, DCOF uses
a different scale. For example, the new .42 wet (DCOF) is replacing the old
reference of .60 COF wet, which has long been the benchmark for friction
in commercial applications.
• The new, more stringent DCOF AcuTest uses a portable robot that, unlike
ASTM C1028, gives realistic values on very smooth surfaces
The ultimate breaking strength is then recorded in pounds. Final selection
of the tile should be based upon the breaking strength and the appropriate
installation method. Tile integrity is critically dependent upon proper
installation. American Olean recommends strict adherence to industry
installation guidelines set forth in ANSI A108, A118 and A136.
C h e mic a l R e s i s ta n c e , AS T M C 6 5 0 - 0 4
Chemical resistance is measured using ASTM C650-04. A tile sample is
placed in continuous contact with a variety of chemicals for 24 hours, rinsing
the surface and then examining the surface for visible variation.
Abr a s io n R e s i s ta n c e , AS T M C 1 0 2 7 - 9 9
The durability of glazed tile is measured, subjectively, by observing the
visible surface abrasion of the tile when subjected to the ASTM C1027-99
testing procedure. American Olean evaluates glazed tile recommended for
floor applications using this test method which includes the following
classification system:
Class Zero
Class One
(Light
Residential)
Not recommended for use on floors
Light Traffic - Residential floor coverings in areas subject
to soft-soled footwear or normal footwear traffic, without
scratching dirt (i.e. domestic bathrooms and bedrooms
without exterior access)
1
Light to Medium Traffic - Residential floor coverings in
areas subject to soft-soled footwear or normal footwear
traffic with small amounts of scratching dirt (i.e. rooms in
the living areas of homes except kitchens, entrances and
other areas that may be subjected to high usage)
Class Two 2
(Residential)
• As our industry transitions, you’ll have access to both the SCOF and
DCOF scores of all American Olean flooring products.
• While the industry standard is changing, the quality you can count on from
American Olean remains the same. Visit www.americanolean.com/DCOF
to learn more.
WAT E R A B S O R P T I O N , AS T M C 3 7 3 - 8 8
Water absorption is measured using ASTM C373-88. Individual tiles are
weighed, saturated with water, then weighed again. The percent difference
between the two conditions is referred to as the water absorption value.
Tiles are classified according to water absorption percentages as follows:
Impervious
Tiles exhibiting 0.5% or less
Vitreous Tiles exhibiting more than 0.5%
but not more than 3.0%
Semi-VitreousTiles exhibiting more than 3.0%
but not more than 7.0%
Non-Vitreous Tiles exhibiting more than 7.0%.
Scr atc h H a rd n e s s ( M O H ’ s Sc a l e R ati n g s )
The relative hardness of glazed tile is an important issue that should be
addressed when selecting a tile. The test is performed by scratching the
surface of the tile with different minerals and subjectively assigning a “MOH’s
Scale Hardness” number to the glaze. The softest mineral used is talc
(“1” rating), the hardest is a diamond (“10” rating). Other minerals of varying
hardness provide Moh’s Scale Hardness values of 5 to 7 which are suitable
for most residential floor applications. A value of 7 or greater is normally
recommended for commercial applications.
B r e a k i n g Str e n gt h C e r a mic T il e , AS T M C 6 4 8 - 0 4
Ceramic tiles used on floors and walls must be able to withstand the
expected load-bearing capacity of various installations. The tile industry uses
ASTM C648-04 to determine the strength and durability of the tile. A force is
applied to an unsupported portion of the tile specimen until breakage occurs.
Class Three
(Heavy
Residential
or Light
Commercial)
3
Medium to Heavy Traffic - Residential or light
commercial may withstand normal footwear and regular
traffic, with some dirt and/or other abrasives present in
limited quantities. Tile in this class may be used in light
commercial installations with limited foot traffic and with
no direct access to the outside. Examples may include
residential kitchens and hallways with limited traffic from
the outside.
Class Four 4
(Commercial)
Heavy Traffic - Residential and commercial floor
coverings subjected to considerable traffic and scratching
dirt (i.e. entrances, workrooms, inns, exhibition halls, and
sales rooms, as well as other rooms in public and private
buildings). Floors should be adequately protected against
scratching dirt at the entrances to buildings by either floor
mats or some other footwear cleaning device.
Class Five 5
(Heavy
Commercial)
Heavy Traffic - Heavy commercial floor coverings subject
to heavy traffic with very abrasive soil
I n du s tr y Sta n d a rd s
The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) and the American
National Standards Institute (AnSi) are nationally recognized organizations,
which identify and develop industry test methods and technical standards.
*Neither ASTM nor AnSi establish an industry standard identifying a
minimum COF value whereby ceramic tile may be labeled “slip resistant”.
All Standard Grade ceramic tile products manufactured by or for
American Olean meet or exceed the requirements of AnSi A137.1.
See product pages for series-specific technical data.
American Olean products, for the most part, require minimal maintenance. Our
glazed and unglazed tile, under normal situations, can be cleaned using clear
water with a tile cleaner. Always follow up with a rinse of clean water. Regular
maintenance is recommended to avoid build-up of residue, dirt, grease, soap,
detergents or other external contaminants. We do not recommend “acid
cleaning” our tile products.
For all floor cleaning operations, follow these basic procedures:
1. Sweep or vacuum surface
2. Mix water with tile and grout cleaner per manufacturer’s instructions and
apply to surface
3. Allow solution to sit for three to five minutes
4. Agitate with sponge or mop
5. Mop up solution
6. Rinse mop and change cleaning solution at least every 500 square feet
7. Rinse thoroughly with clean water
8. Dry mop floor to remove moisture or pick up residue with a wet-vac
9. Wipe the floor dry
Coarse or abrasive tile surfaces need more frequent maintenance. Agitation
should be vigorous and water changed frequently. Proper cleaning of these
types of tile is necessary to maintain slip resistance (coefficient of friction). The
presence of grease or water may create slippery conditions. Be careful to avoid
introduction of grease from dirty mops to your floor surface while cleaning.

• Water, oil, grease, etc. create slippery conditions. Floor applications with
exposure to these conditions require extra caution in product selection.
• Latex modified thin-set recommended for all ColorBody™ and glazed
porcelains.
• Strong random shading enhances the natural beauty of many American Olean
products. To achieve optimal results of a product with random shading, tiles
should be selected from multiple cartons and shading arrangement planned
prior to installation.
• For ColorBody™ porcelain tiles, special care should be taken when grouting
with dark pigmented colors. A grout release is recommended to prevent finely
powdered pigments from lodging in the pores of the tile surface.
• Special consideration needs to be given when installing tiles 20" and larger.
Please refer to www.americanolean.com/LargeTiles for additional information.
• Any rectified series with rectangle sizes should use a 3/16" grout joint when
installed in staggered brick-joint pattern. The overlap should not exceed 33%,
• Cove Base and Floor Bullnose trim are intended to coordinate with floor field
tile in the standard 90-degree installation position.

I mporta n t P roduct L e g a l I n form atio n
All tile is subject to variations in technical specifications, including coefficient
of friction, as represented in this catalog due to inherent variables in the raw
materials and production process. Test results on a particular product may
vary slightly from tile to tile, and from test to test. Test results disclosed in this
catalog are not guarantees of minimum or maximum thresholds of performance.
Tile containing abrasives create a “rough” surface. While this condition
enhances slip resistance, it creates cleaning challenges because dirt and other
contaminants become lodged in the surface. Extra attention is necessary to
assure contaminants are removed promptly. Natural stone products, such as
marble and granite, are inherently subject to variations in shading, markings
and coefficient of friction. Purchasers must inspect and accept shipments
with the full knowledge and understanding that any claims concerning the
acceptability of the product must be presented to American Olean and resolved
prior to installation. Unless specifically stated otherwise, tile recommended
by American Olean for floor or wall applications refers to interior applications
only. American Olean does not recommend its products for use on ceilings or
roofs. Check local building codes prior to specification or installation to verify
that the specified technical characteristics comply with all required parameters.
Color samples as shown may not be an exact product match. American Olean
explicitly disclaims any liability arising out of product selections that rely solely
upon the color samples reprinted in product literature. Contact your American
Olean representative for actual product samples prior to selection. Use of the
product constitutes acceptance.

re-grout sealing is recommended when installing all natural stone decorative
accents. This prevents grout from staining the stone during the grouting
process, and eases in grout clean-up. After installation, sealing of the stone
will reduce porosity and increase stain resistance. Use a penetrating or
surface coating type of sealer, depending on desired aesthetic.
*W
ax cleaners, oil-based detergents, and sealants may decrease the slip resistance of ceramic tile (exceptions made for Quarry). Sealants may be used on grout. Consult the manufacturer of the cleaner, detergent,
or sealant for more detailed information on the impact of their cleaning solution to your tile product.

I CON S Y STE M : These icons highlight added product features and benefits.
• Avoid cleaners containing ammonia, bleach, or abrasives.
• Always test in a small inconspicuous area when using a new cleaner to ensure
compatibility.
1.No floor tile is “slip proof.” However, proper care and maintenance procedures
should be followed.
2.Absent an exception below, glazed floor tiles and porcelain tiles should not
be used in floor applications where there is a consistent surface presence of
water, oil, or grease. This includes outdoor areas.
3.Proper Maintenance is critical. Improper maintenance and improper
maintenance products can result in a build-up on the surface of the tile
causing the tile to be slippery. See maintenance recommendations above.
4.Professional restauranteurs use special floor cleaning machines and cleaners
to assure removal of contaminants, which are critical to maintain slip
resistance in dining areas. Restaurant and commercial kitchen applications
are considered high-risk areas subject to floor contamination by substances
that increase slipping. American Olean does not recommend the use of glazed
floor tile or porcelain tile in a commercial kitchen unless the SCOF exceeds .80
wet. The use of a glazed floor tile in a dining room of a restaurant is subject
to the same risk factors. A glazed floor tile or porcelain tile may be suitable for
the dining area if: (a) the SCOF meets or exceeds .60 wet, and (b) the utmost
care is taken to properly clean the floor and minimize the presence of water.
5.Pool decking has a continuous exposure to standing water and
American Olean does not recommend glazed floor tile or porcelain tile on pool
decks unless the surface (1) has minimal glaze, (2) SCOF meets or exceeds
.60 wet, (3) has a textured surface, and (4) is not polished or
semi-polished. Proper drainage is a necessary prerequisite for all pool
decking tile applications. A textured surface is by its nature rough and may be
uncomfortable to bare feet.
6.Exterior applications, excluding pool deckings, are considered to have a
continuous exposure to standing water due to weather conditions. Glazed and
unglazed ceramic and porcelain tiles are not recommended for exterior floor
applications unless the tile surface: (1) SCOF meets or exceeds 0.60 wet, (2)
is textured, (3) is not polished or semi-polished.
NOTE: Exterior areas require extra attention to minimize slippery conditions
including proper drainage, systematic clean up of wet or contaminated
conditions, and regular inspection of tiled floor surface to assure immediate
correction of wet or contaminated conditions.
7.Slippery conditions can be reduced by (1) limiting foot traffic in wet conditions,
(2) prompt removal of contaminants, (3) effective drainage, and (4) proper
maintenance.
8.Polished and semi-polished surfaces create a very smooth surface. American
Olean does not recommend polished surfaces in any areas subject to water,
oil, or grease exposures.
9.Ramped surfaces, irrespective of the degree of incline, require a more
slip resistant surface for safety purposes. American Olean recommends a
minimum of SCOF .80 wet on all ramps or inclined flooring.
10.Test Methods - there are many different test methods for slip resistance.
The tile industry uses ASTM C1028 for SCOF and AcuTest A1371.1 for DCOF.
DCOF is important because if more realistically measures conditions similar
SM
to walking on tile. DCOF AcuTest uses slightly soapy water instead of
clean water to more realistically recreate environments where slipping occurs.
SM
“.42 Wet” is the new measurement standard for DCOF AcuTest .
American Olean recommends that customers have tile independently tested
to determine if the American Olean product meets the requirements of the
customer’s preferred test method (if other than ASTM C1028) prior to product
selection. Be sure to test competitor’s products under any preferred alternative
method for comparison purposes. American Olean does not warrant that any
of its products will meet any testing parameter other than that measured by
ASTM C1028 and A1371.1
