How to Install
Stainless steel tiles are installed very similarly to regular tile. The principles for design and layout are very similar. They are cut with a tile wet saw using a diamond blade. It is best to start with a fresh blade. Cheaper blades tend not to last as long. If you have quite a bit of cutting to do, we recommend a high-quality blade. Cutting without water may cause discoloration of the tile. Hardboard backed tiles are installed with construction adhesive. Many varieties are available. Liquid Nails is the most common, but we prefer PL Premium by Loctite. It is a urethane adhesive that cures in the presence of moisture, and once cured, is not affected by moisture. If you are installing Fiberock backed tiles, you can use any conventional mastic appropriate for the substrate to which you are tiling. Thinset is the most common mastic, however, there are many others.
