From a recent shipment of 600 x 400 travetine tiles, we have noticed that some tiles have a 70/80mm lighter shade of coloring around the perimeter leaving the center area a darker shade of cream. Our theory is that because of the way these tiles are palleted, moisture is concentrated in the center area of the tiles whilst the perimeter dries out quicker. The application of adhesive would also prolong this disparity in drying time. Does anyone agree or can propose an alternative theory?
