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.
The recommended cutting method is to use a wet saw with a diamond blade that is specifically for cutting metal. Edges can be sanded smooth after cutting.
- 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.
NO GROUTING IS REQUIRED
- You would need to waterdown the thin set a bit more and use the excess thinset as a grout line.
- It is highly recommended that you purchase the Glass & Metal Maintenance Kit
After the tile is installed, seal the tile with an appropriate solvent based sealer, to preserve the finish, minimize oxidization, and prevent the formation of rust. Follow sealer manufacturer’s installation instructions. Reseal the tile as needed.
