You need to make sure that you immediately wipe the grout off of the decorative tile before it dries, because it will not come out of the crevices after it dries. We had a installer put this in for us and he totally ruined our tiles. Please make sure that you're instaler knows what he's doing, cuz hours did not and then he ended up taking the finish off the tiles trying to get the hardened grout off of the top of the tiles that have the raised leaf .accentsiBostonDid anyone use a trim and if so what tile was used for it?BEST ANSWER: EnteMS International Emperador 3/4 in. x 12 in. Polished Marble Pencil Molding Wall Tiler an answer to this question.How are these for cleaning? In a Kitchen I'm concerned about grease.BEST ANSWER: As long as you seal the tile and grout I don't forsee a major issue, however be prepared when you install the tile that getting the grout from around the decorative tiles is quite a hassle. I used the grout release prior to grouting the tile and I still needed to use a dental tool to remove the grout from around the leaves in the design. They are beautiful though. I have only received compliments about the tile. I used it as an accent tile in the kitchen and around my fireplace in the living room.can this be used outdoors on a grill island?
Tile must be installed over a suitable substrate to insure a proper installation. Tile should be installed over a clean, sound, and flat surface, free of contaminates including curing compounds. Substrate should be free of cracks. If used in a wet area you must waterproof. See manufacturer’s recommendation on a membrane for crack and water protection that is compatible with the setting material you are using. Expansion joints should be installed at all “changes in plane” in the tile work and where tile abuts restraining surfaces, therefore silicone caulking sealant must be installed in all corner joints in place of grout.INSTALLATION
- To avoid affecting the color of the tile, White modified thin-set such as Bostik Glass Mate is highly is recommended for all installations.
- Apply as much adhesive as can be covered within 10-15 minutes.
- Grout joint should be a minimum of 1/16” and not butt set.
- The trowel size you can use is a 9" Trowel - 1/16" square notch.
- Use Non-Sanded grout
- Grout joints should be packed full and free of voids and pits.
- Clean excess grout as the work progresses before it has hardens completely.
- Acids should never be used for cleaning grout haze.
- Use a damp sponge for the final cleaning and to smooth out the grout joints.
- It is recommended to use grout release, then grout the tile, then use a sealant to the tile such as our MP90
- Highly recommended to purchase the Glass & Stone Installation/Maintenance Kit - http://www.TileBar.com/collection/tiling-supplies/glass-stone-tile-maintenance-package.html
The recommended cutting method is to use a wet saw with a diamond blade that is specifically for cutting glass. Edges can be sanded smooth after cutting.
