Stainless Steel Mosaic Tile Installation
MINERALTILES' Stainless Steel Mosaic tiles are lightweight and do not oxidize or easily scratch or discolor. This collection is designed for residential and commercial interior application such as but not limited to walls, featured walls, and kitchen and bathroom backsplashes.
It is not recommend using stainless steel tiles for floors.
Installation of Stainless Steel Mosaic tiles should be done by a licensed contractor, especially when electrical work is being done around the metal mosaic. Special attention is required for areas where the stainless steel mosaic tiles will be installed around an area with electrical work or places subject to high temperatures, such as fireplace surrounds.
Substrate & Waterproof Membranes
All substrates should be firmly fixed, flat, clean, dry and free of contaminants such as dust, oil, paint, sealers etc. to ensure proper adhesion. Wet areas require appropriate substrates, e.g. concrete, cement boards (compressed sheet), and/or treated plywood. We suggest using waterproof membranes.
It is highly recommended the use of membrane systems in wet areas such as showers.
Mix setting materials according to manufacturers' instructions.
Care & Cleaning
Metal tiles must be regularly cleaned and maintained to extend their life and beauty. Most dirt and stains can be cleaned with a mild detergent and soft cloth or sponge. Fingerprints, streaks and watermarks can be removed with olive oil. Do not use abrasive cleaners, powders, scouring pads, steel wool or sandpaper. Do not let soap, bleach or other cleaning solutions set on the surface.
A steel wool pad with stainless steel polisher is recommended for removing scratches. Gently rub in a circular motion first, then wipe clean with a damp cloth.
