Chinese Bluestone Pavers & Tiles


*STANDARD GRADE*  [Limited Stock]

Chinese Bluestone Pavers are the cheapest quality of bluestone pavers and comes with around 30% – 50% catspaws on the surface. Its surface contains a mix of a blizzard and normal catspaws which can be filled while grouting to give a sleeker and more defined finish. Sealing is highly recommended for these type of bluestone pavers as it prevents the paver from contamination, unwanted internal damage and preserves the integrity of the stone. 

As the name suggests, Chinese Bluestone Pavers are exported from China. 

Laying Recommendations: You can lay Chinese bluestone pavers in your outdoor areas such as around the swimming pool, patio paving, pathway pavers, walkway paths, backyard and front yard flooring. However, Chinese bluestone requires high maintenance and more often sealing over time.

These sawn finish Chinese bluestone tiles and pavers are the standard grade of bluestone that is found commonly all over Australia. This is a standard grade which means this variety of bluestone has about 30%-50% Cat’s Paw on the tiles surface and has more natural colour variation. This is our budget sawn face bluestone which means you can get the standard look at a much cheaper price. Thickness and size variation is the industry standard of +-3mm, because of this we recommend laying with a 8mm grout joint and always lay in a brick bond pattern.

Sealing & Maintenance

Sealing Bluestone

Bluestone tiles and pavers can be sealed as a peace of mind to ensure bluestone stays in pristine condition. It’s highly recommended particularly in areas where there may be high spillage to protect the lustre of the bluestone tiles and pavers.

If you choose not to seal your tiles, make sure you clean up spills immediately to avoid staining the tiles. Use only a penetrating invisible type sealer (no colour change) similar to Tasman Chemicals STONE SHIELD and ALWAYS follow the sealer manufacturers instructions when applying. We stock a FULL range of suitable sealers.


Do not use Hydrochloric acid for clean up as this can cause minerals present in the stone to react adversely.To clean prior to sealing simply pressure wash the stone and ensure nozzle is never closer than 300mm to the surface of the stone.


Just sweep when needed. Bluestone responds well to high pressure cleaning with a domestic machine, please keep the nozzle about 300mm minimum away from face of the bluestone pavers and tiles. A solution of mild detergent and water can be applied prior to pressure cleaning.
