Now it’s easy to say goodbye to those ugly cracks and chips in damaged tile surfaces without going to the trouble and the expense of replacing individual tiles.
In the past, the two main ways to repair tile damage were to replace the tile or use a porous filler product that didn’t adhere to the tile very well so repairs often fell out. Not only that, the color often didn’t match so the repaired area was highly noticeable.
MagicEzy has released Tile Fix, a revolutionary, colored filler that enables do-it-yourselfers to professionally repair damage in tiles, stone, and granite in minutes and achieve a virtually undetectable repair.
Better still, it offers structural grade adhesion and a 3-year durability guarantee so you don’t need to worry about cracks widening or the repaired product falling out.
Traditionally, when repairing anything, one of the biggest challenges is getting the repair to blend in with the surrounding area so it isn’t noticeable.
There are three factors that determine how invisible the repair looks:
- The color of the repair
- The way in which it is levelled
- How well the gloss levels match between the filler and sealant and the tile.
Repairing your damaged tile using Tile Fix factors in all of the above points so it’s easy to achieve a smooth finish.
Let’s take a look at each of the points in detail …
1. Color Matching Your Tiles Made Easy
As you can imagine, there are an endless number of different tile colors on the market so it would be impossible to buy an off-the-shelf tile repair product that is a perfect color match for every tile.
That’s why MagicEzy not only offer the most popular colors for sale individually, they also offer a Starter Kit. This enables you to create a color match for almost any of the most popular tile colors.
The Tile Fix Starter Kit includes black, white and two different types of beige. It also comes with color matching instructions to make it easy for you.
All you need to do is mix together your preferred colors on the zip lock back provided in the kit or on clear plastic wrap on top of the tile’s surface so you can see the tile color showing through the plastic. Keep blending the colors until you achieve the right color match.
- To achieve a light grey, add a toothpick tip of black to the white.
- To achieve a dark grey, use a toothpick tip of white to the black.
- For a lighter shade of beige, mix together white and light beige
- And for a darker beige, mix together Tile Fix Chocolate Brown with Beige or White. (Note: Chocolate Brown isn’t available in the Starter Kit but it sold separately).
If your tiles are an unusual, bright color like red or green, you can use MagicEzy Hairline Fix which is available in a wider variety of bright colors. It’s completely compatible with Tile Fix so you can mix and match.
2. A Perfectly Levelled Tile Repair
Creating a smooth, level finish is THE most important factor that determines whether or not the repair is noticeable.
For instance, a roughly levelled repair using a color-matched repair product will stand out much more than a smoothly levelled repair with a slightly unmatched color.
It all has to do with the reflection of light. Rough surfaces reflect light and therefore catch the eye whereas smooth surfaces don’t.
When MagicEzy was developing their product range, they spent a number of years perfecting a levelling device that made it easy for do-it-yourself repairers to achieve a level repair.
They created a purpose-built levelling device and built it into the end of their tubes so once you’ve filled the damage, you simply turn the tube around and use the end of the tube to level the surface then grab a tissue to wipe away the smears.
3. Achieving a Matched Gloss or Matte Look
The other factor to look at is the gloss levels. Different tiles come with different levels of gloss so you want to be sure that the gloss level of the repaired product matches the gloss level of the damaged tile.
Again, MagicEzy has made it easy to do that. Tile Fix is a high gloss product so if your tiles are high gloss, simply apply the product then let it dry. If, on the other hand, your tiles are semi-gloss or matte, here’s what you do.
Once Tile Fix has started to dry (after the hairdryer stage in the instructions), with a glove on, just tap the repair using the tiniest amount of pressure until the repair matches the matte level of the tile.
MagicEzy Tile Fix can be used on all types of tile surfaces including ceramic, porcelain, granite, marble, Caesarstone and more. You can either buy colors individually or you can buy a Starter Kit which includes black, white and two shades of beige. Tile Fix is available for purchase on Amazon.com
