Can these be used outdoors?
Our advice: Yes, these can be used provided they are installed onto a cured concrete base and adhered with an external tile adhesive.
Do these tiles need sealing? Had them down a week and they get very dirty, which I expected, but the dirt is difficult to remove. Would sealing them help this?
Our advice: These tiles do not need sealing but if you did want to seal them then we do a grout and tile protector (SKU: LTP156) which is designed to protect from penetration of water, dirt, oil and grease. It creates a barrier that should make the surface easier to clean.
