This Silver Bling Mirror Glass Mosaic Tile is made of mirror glass chips. After going through the high-temperature kiln, the mosaics are very durable. On the back of our product, it is mesh mounted so is easy for cutting. The color of this mosaic tile is transparent. While producing this glass tile, we used some special techniques to make the mosaic looks like the shining diamond. It is highly recommended for the salon, bar, bathtub, bathroom, wall decor, and kitchen backsplash.
Silver Glass Bling Mirror Mosaic Tile
Tips: Due to the chips are stuck on the mesh by natural glue which it is not firm like ordinary glue , it is reasonable that one or two chips fall off through transportation, they are easy to reset. When you install them, just stick the chips on the original place by non-sanded, thin grout it will work like others.
- Step 1
To initiate the bond coat, use the flat side of a trowel and firmly apply thinset to the substrate.
- Step 2
To establish the proper depth of the setting bed, use a 3/16” x 1/4” v-notch trowel to apply additional thin-set and comb full notches in one direction.
- Step 3
Use the flat side of the trowel to flatten the notches and achieve a smooth, consistent thin-set setting bed.
- Step 4
Apply mosaic sheets to the thinset setting bed, tape side towards you, with light, even pressure. When joining sheets, be certain to adjust sheets so that grout lines are uniform. Periodically, check thinset for skinning (slight drying). If skinning occurs, remove thinset and reapply.
- Step 5
To achieve the flattest possible surface, lightly tap the sheets using light pressure with a grout float or a wooden beating block and a finish hammer. To unify sheet transitions, tap from one sheet to the next.
- Step 6
After the thinset has cured, slowly peel the face mounting tape from the tile starting from the corner. Use an angled downward movement.
3/16" or 1/4" square notch trowel should be used when installing our glass material and ridges should be smoothed down with the flat side of the trowel prior to fixing the tiles in the mortar bed. Tiles larger than 3x3 should be back-buttered with a thin continuous layer of the thin set applied with the flat side of the trowel.
- Drying Time
Glass tiles are non-porous: the moisture in the setting materials cannot migrate through the glass and must evaporate slowly through the joints. All setting material, even rapidest mortars need a longer time to cure. Allow thin-set mortar to dry completely for a minimum of 72 hours prior to grouting or otherwise interfering with the fresh installation.
To speed up the drying process, we recommend cutting small slits in the plastic to facilitate air flow. Additionally, it is very important that the plastic be peeled off at a flat angle - do not grab an edge and pull straight up. Instead, peel it backwards while pressing down on the still covered side and slowly pulling back.
- CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Highly recommended to purchase the Glass Installation/Maintenance Kit, which contains all you need to maintain and care for your tiles.
For normal care and maintenance of glass tile, wiping the surface with a damp sponge or clothe with water or a light vinegar solution is sufficient. If stronger cleaning is needed, a nonabrasive, neutral pH cleaner can be used.
Glass tile may be damaged from impact with hard or heavy objects, which can lead to chipping or breakage causing sharp cutting edges that can lead to injuries. Always replace any damaged glass tiles immediately.
