About Chinese Bluestone Tiles & Pavers

About Chinese Bluestone Tiles & Pavers


If you’re after the bluestone look at a very cheap price, choose our Chinese Bluestone tiles and pavers.

This is the standard quality typically found Australia wide. There is likely to be between 0-20% max of the surface of any tile to contain Cat’s paw in your order. Additionally, this Chinese bluestone will have more colour and texture variation in the tiles. Great if you want to great a bluestone look with lots of natural character. Chinese China Blue Bluestone Tiles & Pavers are internationally renown for being a great value for money paver. It is the most similar Bluestone/Basalt in colour and quality to Australian Bluestone on the Australian market. With a higher density and texture with a sawn surface finish achieving a higher non slip level. This is a mid grey coloured bluestone and looks great when grouted with a light grey/neutral coloured grout BUT for those of you seeking a darker shade ie charcoal grey we recommend grouting with our charcoal grey stone grout. You can see the effect of the 2 different grouts in one of the pictures above. It is to be expected in Chinese Bluestone to get a dimensional or thickness variation of +-3mm, this is why we recommend that you lay this bluestone in BRICK BOND ONLY and allow for an 8mm grout joint (due to the tile variations).

This is our most budget range of bluestone pavers and tiles. However, if you’d like a more premium bluestone pavers, we recommend Harkaway Bluestone Pavers & Tiles

Here we will discuss the different characteristics of these two distinct bluestone categorizations.

Generally speaking, Standard Grade Bluestone will have the following characteristics:

  • A higher percentage of tiles or pavers containing naturally occurring catspaw, between 3-15% of the surface of the tile.
  • Cutting tolerances during the process of slicing the bluestone boulders up into tiles or pavers. In this case, a variation or tolerance allowance of +-3mm is to be expected. This leads to the occasional tile or paver being slightly out of square and is the reason why we recommend laying ONLY in a brick bond or stretcher bond pattern (which may fix these issues). If laying in adhesive, we recommend using a 6mm notch trowel to spread the adhesive BOTH on the slab and on the entire back of every tile or paver in a cross thatched pattern.
  • In some rare instances where some Ferro particles may be in the catspaw, it should be noted that these can be hidden during the grouting process.
  • The non-slip rating is HIGHER due to the sawn surface finish during the cutting process.

Premium Harkaway Bluestone comparison:

  • Less naturally occurring catspaw, usually around 0-5% of any tile or pavers surface.
  • Variation or tolerance allowance of +-1.5mm is to be expected.
  • Naturally occurring light surface pattern and colour variations may be present compared to standard grade.
  • Surface finish is lightly honed, giving a slightly smoother finish, however, is still classified as a non-slip surface
Installation, Sealing & Maintenance Guide

Installation, Sealing & Maintenance Guide


Please use one of the following adhesives IF installing in adhesive is preferred…..

If you prefer to install your pavers in traditional sand and cement style follow these instructions to the letter:

– Select one of the adhesives above (they ALL have a rapid setting time) and simply mix as per manufactures specifications then notch the adhesive onto the back of EVERY tile (ensuring 100% coverage).
– Let the adhesive set, usually around 3-4 hrs and then install the tiles as per your usual technique into the wet sand and cement mix.
– This system minimises the risk of any of the tiles warping slightly due to being moisture sensitive.
– GROUTING should ONLY occur IF the tiles have been completely dry for at least 4 days in a row.
– IT IS NOT acceptable to blow the water out of the joints and then grout as you WILL have effluence issues, possibly warping issues, picture framing due to trapped excessive moisture.
– You must of course follow the Australian Tiling Standards in regard to incorporating expansion joints into your tiling. Failure to do so WILL lead to drummy and lifting tiles.

Bluestone can be sealed with an invisible penetrating sealer to assist in the ongoing clean up of the stone.

An invisible penetrating sealer can be applied prior to grouting which will facilitate easy clean up after application of the grout.


Do not use Hydrochloric acid for clean up as this can cause minerals present in the stone to react.


Just sweep when needed. Bluestone responds well to high pressure cleaning. A solution of mild detergent and water, can be applied prior to pressure cleaning.

We deliver bluestone pavers, tiles and pool coping door to door to all suburbs in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, Adelaide and Hobart. We also deliver to any regional area in Australia at reasonable freight rates.
