I can't wait to get it,Yolanda M on Mar 10, 2017How do you finish the outside edge? Does it come with a bullnose or finish edge of any kind?BEST ANSWER: The placement of our tile was between 2 side walls so we just dead-ended into the wall. The bottom was at the counter and the top dead-ended into the glass shelf above. No need for any bullnose. However, I have used a strip of metal called Schluter edge strip in other areas of our home. I like the clean edge that it gives. Schluter strips come in a variety of widths and finishes. Be sure the one you select allows the edge of the tile to fit just inside for the best finish.Is this OK to use in shower?

I am concerned about the ease of cleaning.BEST ANSWER: We used it for the backsplash in the bathroom of our Airstream trailer. Even though I love it and would like it in a kitchen, I wouldn't do it. I think it would be too hard to clean. You wouldn't be able to just wipe it off. It does not have a smooth finish.How is this product applied?

Tile must be installed over a suitable substrate to insure a proper installation. Metal tiles should be installed over a clean, sound, and flat surface, free of contaminates including curing compounds. Substrate should be free of cracks. Any inconsistencies in the substrate will result in a poor installation.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 Stainless Steel Tile Installation/Maintenance Kit - http://www.TileBar.com/collection/tiling-supplies/stainless-steel-tile-maintenance-package.html
The recommended cutting method is to use a miter saw with non ferrous blade. Please note to cut material - take one sheet at a time and cut slowly.
